Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul is doing some good.

As the Emmy-winning AMC show approaches its series finale on Sunday, the 34-year-old actor, who plays conflicted and hapless meth cooker Jesse, has used his celebrity to raise $1.8 million for his wife Lauren Parsekian's anti-bullying charity, The Kind Campaign. The nonprofit seeks to raise awareness of bullying among girls.

According to the New York Daily News, two winners of an online contest Paul sponsored will visit Hollywood, where they will attend the series finale viewing party on Sunday and hang out with the cast.

Paul will personally pick up his winning guests and accompany them to the bash, which will include a fake "cooking" session befitting his character's vocation of choice.

Paul, who has won two Emmy Awards for his work on the show, took to Twitter to show how jazzed he was about fans supporting in his cause.

"We raised nearly $1.8 million for @kindcampaign," he Tweeted. "That is because of all of you. Words can't express how unbelievably grateful I am. #iLoveU."

Other fans hankering for memorabilia from the popular show can bid on about 200 Breaking Bad items going up for auction beginning Sunday on Screenbid.
