MCM | ‘Saints & Sinners’ Star Gives to Homeless

christian-keyes

Now we know who the saint is–Christian Keyes.

The Let’s Stay Together star turned his lazy Sunday into day of service. By cleaning out his closets, filling up 10 garbage bags worth of Fall gear for donation to homeless org–My Friend’s House Foundation.

 

Also known as We Feed the Homeless. The LA-based org provides clothes, food and other basics for the homeless.

My Friend’s House founder Tiffany A. Rose is expanding the charity’s operation. She started a Go Fund Me page seeking $25K, so far she’s earned $17,204.

To earn your halo (Christian has one!) donate your coins here.

The ab-tastic model/actor may also have angel wings because he loves to give back. Especially to his hometown of Flint, Michigan.

 

Last weekend, he hit the hardwood of MSU with Rev Run’s son Diggy Simmons and Cory Hardrict for the 3rd Annual Hoop for Hope celebrity basketball game.

All the proceeds went to helping 1000 families in need and donating two semi trucks of water to the people of Flint, who have had to live with poisoned water since 2014.

Salute to Christian for doing his part to be more of a saint to his community.

Five Ways to Give Thanks to Veterans this Memorial Weekend

MemorialDay3

This weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. Woo hoo!! Everyone break out the freshly bought bikinis and head to the nearest sunny spot on the beach, except for NorthEasterners’ who are grabbing sweatshirts and scarfs instead of shorts because it’s fur-reezing in New York. (Thanks, Mr. G). But we don’t need a BBQ grill or a killer one piece swimsuit to acknowledge what this holiday is really about: honoring veterans that gave their lives to protect us. To make it possible for us to bathe in the sun and cook on an open grill. If that doesn’t deserve a big, fat thank you, I don’t know what does. So, here are five ways you can honor fallen veterans this Memorial Weekend:

1. Visit a national cemetery in your area. Plant a flag or drape one over fallen servicemen’s tombstones to acknowledge their sacrifice for our democracy.

2. Attend a Memorial Day Parade. You have the opportunity to give thanks to veterans in person for their service to the country.

3. Volunteer at a Veteran’s Hospital. You can donate time and gratitude to the servicemen who are ill. Showing them you haven’t forgotten what they sacrificed will surely cheer them up.

4. Send a Care Package to a Active Serviceman. Show your appreciation to servicemen currently in the fight by sending tokens of thanks.

5. Send a message of thanks to military families. http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces/message
