A Utah family struggling with mounting medical bills has $5,000 less to worry about thanks to Jared Leto.
As People reports, the “Dallas Buyers Club” Oscar winner made a $5K donation to a family in Sandy, Utah, who launched a GoFundMe page in order to raise money to help pay the medical bills of their sons, Griffin, 3, and Watson, 18 months, who suffered extensive injuries when they were struck by a car while being pushed in a stroller.
According to People, the 47-year-old actor was challenged by friend Zedd to participate in the #GoodThingChallenge, in which people are encouraged to “to do something good, no matter how big or small.”
On Wednesday, Leto took to Twitter to reveal he was making donations to two different families, first linking to the GoFundMe page supporting Griffin and Watson.
In another tweet, he revealed he was also donating to the GoFundMe to pay for surgeries for a youngster who suffered severe burns when his bed caught fire when he was 2.
“I encourage everyone to do the #goodthingchallenge,” wrote Leto, challenging fellow celebs Cara Delevingne, Dan Reynolds and Drew Taggart to find make a donation that can change someone’s life. “Remember the smallest gesture can make a big impact… even if it’s just a hello and a smile.”
Last week, Zedd shared a video outlining the philosophy behind the #GoodThingChallenge — watch:
