It’s considerably easier to play a hero in the movies than it is to actually be a hero in real life. But Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger is managing to do both.
The 74-year-old actor and politician has long used his money and influence for good, whether by promoting fitness for the White House or becoming governor of California, spent Christmas doing good on a smaller, but no less meaningful scale.
The former Terminator posted a collection of images on Instagram a few days before Christmas, sharing the news that he’d worked with Village For Vets to help provide 25 homes for homeless veterans in Los Angeles.
“Today, I celebrated Christmas early. The 25 homes I donated for homeless veterans were installed here in LA. It was fantastic to spend some time with our heroes and welcome them into their new homes. I want to thank @villageforvets for arranging the homes and being a fantastic partner, @secvetaffairs, @amvetshq and everyone who worked with us and made this possible. We proved that when we all work together, we can solve any problem.”

The post has 173,000 likes and nearly 3000 comments thanking the superstar for his charity during the holidays. I’m off to repay the man by watching Jingle All the Way again.
