If you needed any more evidence that Matthew McConaughey is the nicest guy in Hollywood, look no further than here.
Matthew and his wife, Camila, have already worked so hard toward the pandemic crisis and their most recent move is their most generous yet...
Matthew McConaughey has been well and truly been stepping up during this pandemic crisis.While millions of us remain in quarantine as a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, the actor has decided to help out those who are less fortunate than himself.
But firstly, let's rewind a few years.Matthew is best known for being one of Hollywood's most loved actors and he has graced our screens since the 1990s.
He has made quite a name for himself...He has starred and co-starred in movies such as How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days (2003), Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009), Magic Mike (2012), Dallas Buyers Club (2013), and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) which have all demonstrated how he is such a versatile actor.
But alongside his talents on-screen...Matthew is also known for being a generous and compassionate person.
And his most recent acts have certainly shown that...
The virus has now infected more than a million people...And the death rate is rapidly rising day by day. People are now living in fear and despair, and it's safe to say that things are getting out of control.
Our elderly residents are by far at the highest risk from the deadly virus.The virus is considered most dangerous to the elderly and those who suffer from existing health issues - which is a lot of the world's population.
These people are more likely to suffer from serious, and potentially deadly, health issues as a consequence of the virus.So it is of the utmost importance that they remain quarantined and away from other people.
Our nursing homes have taken a huge hit during the pandemic...With many members of staff being unable to come into work, they have been needing all the help they can get.
People have been helping out as best as they can...And thousands of volunteers have been pitching together to somehow assist their elderly neighbors in any way possible.
And, while most have been helping out in more practical manners...Others have been focusing more on bringing a simple bit of happiness to the lives of the residents.
Now we introduce Matthew McConaughey's first act of kindness...The actor wanted to give a little back to the quarantined residents at The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living facility in his home-town of Texas.
While other celebrities of his status have been filming themselves singing and complaining about being isolated in their mansions...McConaughey decided to use his voice to spread joy in a slightly different, yet more effective way to the others.
He devised together a plan to lift the spirits of those residing at The Enclave...And what's more uplifting than a good, old fashioned game of bingo?
The actor, seen here towards the bottom right corner, decided to host a virtual version of the game...Where residents who were self-isolating in their rooms could all join in via a giant Zoom video call.
Joined by his mom, wife, and 2 children, McConaughey hosted the virtual game...Where he enthusiastically called out numbers and declared any potential winners.
"We've got an I-24, an I-24..."As he clarifies the lucky drawn number, 2 residents suddenly shout out "Bingo!", in which the actor and his family yell in celebration.
It was the most heartwarming moment.And the look of joy on the residents' faces was simply undeniable.
And, once their game had finished, the residents had their own words of thanks for the actor...They wanted to pay tribute to an important message the actor had given to the world last month.
In March, the actor took to Twitter to offer some very wise words regarding the ongoing pandemic.

So, as a thank you, the residents decided to hold up their own "green lights."
One of the facility's workers said:
"I wanted to say, from all of us, we want to continue to turn a red light into a green light," as all the players held up their own green pieces of paper with inspirational messages written on the front.
