Keanu Reeves could buy everything, but instead chooses to buy just one thing

Keanu Reeves at the peak of his career

He was abandoned by his father at the age of 3 and grew up with 3 different stepfathers.

He is dyslexic.

His dream of becoming a hockey player was shattered by a serious accident.

His daughter died at birth.

His wife died in a car accident.

His best friend River Phoenix died of an overdose.

His sister has leukemia.

And despite everything that has happened to him, Keanu Reeves does not miss an opportunity to help those in need.

When he was filming the movie "The Lake House", he overheard a conversation between two costumers; one was crying because he would lose his house if he did not pay $20,000, and the same day Keanu deposited the required amount in the woman's bank account;

He has also donated stratospheric amounts to hospitals.

In 2010, on his birthday, Keanu went to a bakery and bought a bun with a single candle, ate it in front of the bakery and offered coffee to people who stopped to talk to him.

After winning astronomical sums for the Matrix trilogy, the actor donated more than $50 million to the costume and special effects staff: the real heroes of the trilogy, as he called them.

He also gave a Harley-Davidson to each of his stunt doubles.

A total expense of more than 75 million dollars.

And for many popular films; he even gave up 90% of his salary to allow the filming to hire other stars.

In 1997, some paparazzi even caught him spending a morning in the company of a homeless man in Los Angeles, listening to him and sharing his life for several hours.

Most stars, when making a charitable gesture, announce it to the media.

Keanu Reeves has never claimed to be involved in charity, simply out of moral principles and not to look better in the eyes of others.

This man could have bought everything, but instead, every day he gets up and chooses one thing that cannot be bought: BEING A GOOD PERSON.

I admire him... may there be more people like him, may he be healthy and successful in everything.

A man of peace! A great actor and most importantly a man with a big heart.
