Matthew McConaughey Spent His Birthday Delivering 4,500 Free Thanksgiving Turkeys
November 8, 2017
Matthew McConaughey celebrated his 48th birthday last weekend — and he spent the day giving back.
The actor helped hand out 4,500 free turkeys to local families in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
During a Facebook Live video, McConaughey went to the Wild Turkey Distillery and announced that he and “250 volunteers are going to deliver 4,500 turkeys to people around Lawrenceburg, and the volunteers that are here don’t know I’m here, so Eddie Russell’s about to invite me on hopefully to surprise them.
“And it’s my birthday,” he added.
“Thank you for being here and giving up your Saturday for this,” Matthew said in a speech to fellow volunteers, which he shared on Facebook. “We believe in our family that the more you’re thankful for, the more you’re going to create in your life to be thankful for.”
