Snopes about Keanu
According to snopes, Keanu made a statement in a ladies home journal from the year 2009 stating that he had a private foundation and it has now been five to six years and it works well to help a couple of research centers and some children hospitals. He said that he really doesn’t like to link his name to things like it and he just let the foundation work by itself. Well, Keanu isn’t just doing this for any reason but he has some personal reason behind helping the people with cancer and his sister Krim was diagnosed with leukaemia in the year 1990s before it went into remission and he hasn’t told it to anyone about it.
But he was found to be manning the phones in 2008 in the cancer telethon by the public efforts and the list wrote that the stars like Reeves are those who generously give their time to people who need and they use their star power so that they could encourage the fans to become donors, callers and the participants in the efforts to heal cancer. Well cancer research isn’t an affordable thing and it is expensive to be funded and it was even tougher for Keanu to put his fame in risk to raise the awareness of cancer and its causes among people and it’s surely a generous thing. Well amazingly, not only this, Reeves donates to some other charities too like there is SCORE and another charity which is founded in support of the hockey players who face spinal injuries.
