Keanu Reeves is giving one fan a special Zoom date to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold on July 6, 2020. Reeves has reached a mythical legend status with fan tales of the star's kindness and generosity that aren’t comparable to many celebrities out there. On Monday (June 23) the winning bid won at a cool $75,200 by an anonymous bidder.
Reeves auctioned himself for a 15 minute zoom call meeting to the highest bidder to raise money for the Idaho-based children’s cancer charity. Bids started at $10,000.
All money raised from “15 Minutes of Fame with Keanu Reeves” will be given to the children’s cancer organization. Camp Rainbow Gold’s mission is “to provide emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer and their families.”
The summer oncology camp serves more than 400 Idaho family members and is supported by more than 300 volunteers from across the country.
“Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him. This is truly priceless and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home!” The website describes the one-on-one with Reeves, “Get your questions ready and spend 15-minutes with actor, director, producer, and musician, Keanu Reeves.”
In addition to being coined the nicest guy ever, Reeves is often the subject of news headlines covering his random acts of kindness, which range from large donations of money to children's hospital to giving up his seat on a subway for a fan.
