It’s a fact that no one can deny that Keanu Reeves is a generous lump. It’s 2018. Keanu started being recognized now even though he has tried to keep a relatively low profile and anonymity while performing his acts of charity for the last 20 years. He travels through the subway and donates millions to various charities as someone who lives in a modest flat. He doesn’t do these for his movies, or for being John Wick or Neo.
Keanu Reeves’ back-story is a sad one. When he was three years old, his father left the family. It was really hard for him at school as he was diagnosed with dyslexia. His steady girlfriend for a long period died in an accident at the age of 29 after giving birth to a stillborn. There were more troubles in his life, his sister was diagnosed with leukemia and he spent millions on her treatment. It was not easy for him and it is one of the reasons why he is so grounded and humane. He knows what it is to be human.
We undermine it when we say that he is recognized for his good deeds. Without his knowledge, he has been subjected to multiple blog posts, twitter stories, Instagram pictures and Youtube videos as people have been sneakily taking pictures and videos of him. He was eating a cake on his birthday at a small café and has shared it with everyone in the vicinity, and this video has gone viral. There’s also another video where he was offering his seat in a crowded subway to a pregnant woman. He’s really a great man.
He secretly finances children’s hospitals
He has made the number of donations over the years such as donating to several cancer institutions, taking care of his sister Kim, organizing hockey matches for hockey players suffering from spinal injuries, and the list is really long. He has also set up a foundation for cancer funding where he didn’t tag his name beside it.
His love for humanity can only be trumped by his love for anonymity. There are several celebrities who would willingly mention themselves while donating to charities. But, he just works against that notion. Reeves himself organized the entire event and took care of the phone calls at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon.
Keanu’s kindness has been subjected to Reddit posts while working on the sets of Point Break and the cast and crew members spoke highly of him. All of his earnings from the Matrix films were given away to the members involved in making the film the cult classic which continue to serve him royalty.
Keanu Reeves is really a great man who represents everything a human being should ideally be.
