Matthew McConaughey recently brought a lot of happiness to an unsuspecting group of elderly residents.

While millions of us remain in quarantine as a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, the actor decided to help out a group of those considered as some the most vulnerable.

The virus, which has brought the world to a complete standstill, is considered most dangerous to the elderly and those who suffer from existing health issues.

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.

It is undeniably a difficult time for everyone at the moment, but for the elderly to be isolated away from their families, overwhelming feelings of turmoil and loneliness are bound to be experienced.

And 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.

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.

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. 

McConaughey decided to use his voice to spread joy in a slightly different, yet more effective way to the others.

And what’s more uplifting than a good, old fashioned game of bingo?

Where residents who were self-isolating in their rooms could all join in via a giant Zoom video call.

Where he enthusiastically called out numbers and declared any potential winners.

As he clarifies the lucky drawn number, 2 residents suddenly shout out “Bingo!”, in which the actor and his family yell in celebration.

He makes for the most passionate bingo caller of all time.

“Richard Black just waving a hammer up high!” McConaughey exclaims, as his family excitedly applaud around him. “We got Charles King in the iPad up high! We got two winners!”

It was the most heartwarming moment.

And the look of joy on the residents’ faces was simply undeniable.

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.

He reminded everyone that all red lights eventually turn green, saying: “I just want to say, in these crazy times… Let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Let’s not go to the lowest common denominator and get paranoid. Let’s do our due diligence and take the precautions that we need to, to take care of ourselves and those around us.”


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. 

And sat back in his chair, slowly clapping with a huge smile on his face.

What an amazing gesture. To read more about the kind gestures of the rich and famous, and to hear what other celebrities are doing to spread a bit of kindness, keep scrolling…
