I've always LOVED Keanu, and although he doesn't ask for recognition for the nice things he does, I feel he deserves it.
As if you needed another reason to love Keanu Reeves, it turns out that he’s been running a private charity foundation for more than ten years that funds children’s hospitals and cancer research. It’s no surprise he hasn’t told anyone – the actor is known for being nicer and more humble than Hollywood stars are usually known for.
But it’s not like he’s never mentioned it. Back in 2009, he reportedly talked about the foundation in a "Ladies Home Journal" article, explaining that he doesn’t “like my name attached to it.” “I just let the foundation do what it does,” he said at the time. Apparently, he’s motivated to give to the cause because his sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia back in the 1990s (thankfully, it later went into remission).
The star has also reportedly donated to other charities, like the Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment (SCORE) charity supporting hockey players with spinal injuries. He also donated his time to help out the Stand Up to Cancer telethon in 2008, taking calls to help raise funds for the cause.
