Colin Farrell's Charitable Donation
Childline is a hotline that kids can call for help sorting out their problems. The UK fast-food chain, Abrakebabra will donate every cent they earn on Sunday to the help line.
In 2003, Farrell helped the aforementioned street-dweller, Stress, win $2,000 in a contest to bring him to a Toronto radio station. Hearing about it on the radio, he grabbed the first homeless person he saw and headed to the studio for the man to win the money.
Earlier this year, he was back in Toronto for their film festival, (promoting Cassandra's Dreams) and ran into Stress again. This time, Farrell took him on a shopping spree, gave him $1,000 (with which he bought food for others in his situation), and offered him rent money, but the man declined, according to local reports.
