Blind Items Revealed

November 28, 2013

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.

TanGyal said...

My opinion of him just shot up.

audrey said...

Go Josh...and yeah, this does make me like him a little more.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hot AND philanthropic! Yay for Fergs! Good job, Josh

Sherry said...

My opinion just shot up too. Kudos to anyone who gives freely of their money to make sure people don't go hungry. So much food is wasted in this country.

The last place I worked they put salads, sandwiches and fruit in the break rooms. At the end of the day it all got tossed. Try as we might we were never unable to get them to stop this practice and laws prohibited it from being donated.

Why have these be blind? I am sure we would like to hear some good things more often.

MollyMo said...

What Duhamel is doing is how people are raised in the Upper Midwest....we help each other when there is trouble. And a testament to the man's character......a while back when there was major flooding in North Dakota, he was on a morning show and was describing what was happening.....how destructive the flooding was.......suddenly he broke down crying. Yup. Mr. Duhamel is a class act.

Sherry said...

keetz4 what a heartwarming story.

fancyscreenname said...

Generous AND hawt, what a man...

Leekalicious said...

Wow, who knew? I hope he treats the rest of his world so well...

Harlow17 said...

he's from my home state. He is really nice to people when he's back i've heard. Good guy. He just apparently cheats on fergie but who wouldn't with her meth face eek

Scallywag said...

I've heard nothing but good things about him being a stand-up guy.

The BEP also did a concert in Minot after the flooding a couple of years ago and raised about $1 million for the rebuilding effort.

And he is now narrating commercials for ND tourism.

di butler said...

Yup, knew this one. @keetz4, that's not just in the Midwest. We do that here in the South, as well. After tornados, floods, hurricanes, you get to see us come together quite often.

Cee Kay said...

Aw, Leo...*sigh*

Susan said...

That's wonderful.

WUWT? said...

WOOHOOOO!
For the first time in a [revealed] blind, I gave the right answer first! I finally got one!
YAAAAAAY!


In related news, I may have just inadvertently ushered in the End Times....

Leo and Greenlee - loved them. Curses to whomever made him get veneers. He was even hotter with his Lauren Hutton gap.

Dexamyl said...

@Talks Agree completely. Hot and generous...I'm in love.
