Today's Blind Items - Thanksgiving Love

This actor stays out of the limelight. He certainly isn't perfect and has been in this space for some less auspicious reasons in the past but today he is celebrated for his kindness and generosity and for bringing Thanksgiving to thousands of families who might otherwise not have a special day today. He also tries to make sure that all families have a warm meal everyday of the year and not just the holidays. He doesn't do much in the Los Angeles area. He donates some time and money but he focuses on his hometown and the surrounding communities and has spent close to a million dollars to make sure that food banks in his home state are all supplied with food and necessities for those who need it and has donated thousands of turkeys and unwrapped gifts to try and make the holidays better for those less fortunate. It all started for the B- list television and movie actor who got his fame on television a few years ago when his family came calling for some help. His family and others had gone through a rough episode and he helped them and saw the effect it had on those people and wanted to do more so he has been slowly increasing what he does and what he can do and has tried to not only donate money but also his time and tried to get his friends to do the same in their own hometowns. The great thing about it is this actor stays quiet about it even though it would make him look amazing. You have to admire that.

Whoever he is, bless him for his amazing kindness.

I second Josh Duhamel.

Violet said...

Mark Harmon grew up in an affluent family in Michigan - his dad was a pro-footballer.

Deleted b/c i totally misinterpreted the first sentence about staying out of the limelight.

Shelly Hood said...

Josh Duhamel's stripper loving antics have been documented, so I think it's him.

Shelly Hood said...

Maybe Kutcher, though?

Seven of Eleven said...

I wish more of the kindness BIs were revealed! Much rather read about than Emmy Rossum's supposed bulimia.

Renoblondee said...

I also go with Josh. Pretty to look at and a big heart! Fergie, you lucky dog you.

Tru Leigh said...

I thought Mark Harmon too. But LA is his home town.
Where's VIPBlonde when you need her?

Cheryl S said...

Gary Sinise? Not sure if all the clues fit him or not..

FrenchGirl said...

Duhamel

keetz4 said...

Aston Kutcher

Mary said...

Yup. Duhamel. He does tons of things for the folks of North Dakota.

Sherry said...

Duhamel.AlthoughCheryl Sinise does wonderful things for vets and their families too.

Definitely Duhamel. His hometown of Minot was flooded and completely devastated just a few years ago. I happen to live near there. He did a lot of fundraising and psa commercials. His wife did a concert there and proceeds went to the hundreds of families that lost everything.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Someone from New Orleans or the tornado zone?

I think it is Neil Patrick Harris. He is involved in a lot of charities, and he is from New Mexico, not L.A., but is helping to feed the homeless in L.A. today. http://www.looktothestars.org/news/11152-stars-to-help-feed-the-homeless-at-la-mission-thanksgiving-event

Josh Hartnett - Minnesota

Ella Bee said...

This is definitely Josh D. One of my very good friends is close with him and his wife, and we've met on a few occasions as well. Incredibly sweet and humble person- so kind and personable.

Henriette said...

I know this isn't John Stamos. He's an native Angelino.

di butler said...

Duhamel and Hartnett both do a good bit of local charity, but if we know it, is it really under the radar, or is it because we keep tabs on the haps?
