BANG! NEWS – Jared Leto has donated USD10,000 to families in need, as part of the ‘Good Thing Challenge’ he was nominated to take part in by Zedd.
For his part of the challenge, Jared donated USD5,000 each to two GoFundMe pages for families in need of support, and shared the news on Twitter, where he also nominated Cara Delevingne, Dan Reynolds, and Drew Taggart for the challenge.
Jared donated USD5,000 to a boy named Zaid who survived severe burns when his bed accidentally caught fire, and is now raising the money needed to fund his expensive surgeries and reconstructive procedures.
The other USD5,000 went to young boys Griffin and Watson, who were hit by a car and now need money to fund their recovery.
The Suicide Squad star then urged his followers to get involved with the challenge, and do something good.
He said, “I encourage everyone to do the #goodthingchallenge. Remember the smallest gesture can make a big impact…even if it’s just a hello and a smile. (sic)”
