Actor Keanu Reeves Admits He’s Been Secretly Funding Children’s Hospitals Around The Globe
When we look through social media – or media in general – we’re often inundated with pictures of the rich and famous living their glamorous lives, spending money like there’s no tomorrow. It can get tedious and frustrating to see these people spend so much on themselves – especially when they’re not using any of their blessings to help others.

That’s why it’s so refreshing to hear about a celebrity who has been flying under the radar and using his resources to help those in need.
While caring for his sister, Kim, during her decade-long battle with leukemia, actor Keanu Reeves became passionate about fighting cancer and finding a cure. He donated millions to various charity organizations and even started a foundation of his own, though no one knew it was his foundation for years because he never attached his name to it.
In an interview with Ladies’ Home Journal in 2009, Reeves admitted that he had started a foundation to help kids with cancer and fund cancer research, but he remained ever humble about his role in it.
“I have a private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research,” he revealed.
“I don’t like to attach my name to it, I just let the foundation do what it does.”
