HIS FOUNDATION

Giving to the less fortunate or privileged is often described as one of the kindest gestures. While some rich individuals might choose to acquire the best of properties, others think it necessary to donate a part of their wealth to facilities.

The "John Wick" star privately runs a charitable foundation that aims at aiding sick children. Reeves once revealed that he had no interest in attaching his name to his foundation. He has also donated money to cancer research and several children's hospitals.
