Pratt got the ball rolling on Twitter last week when he revealed that he’ll be matching donations to support a program that’s helping food-insecure households as part of GreatGoods’ “Feed Thy Neighbor” program.
“If your family has relied on the support of a food bank this year, please know you’re not alone. If you’ve ever assisted a family in need, you know there’s no greater feeling. Tis the season," the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor wrote.
On the organization’s website, it notes that Pratt matched all donations that came through before Dec. 29 up to $100,000. As an added incentive for fans to donate and help out this holiday season, Pratt even offered a virtual meeting with a handful of lucky winners. He’ll host them during his star-studded New Year’s Eve Instagram Live telethon on Thursday. All donations went to support Greater Good Charities and Feeding America.
