Actor Keanu Reeves who is known for his charity work and humanitarian efforts, recently placated a group of people he was flying with, after the plane made an emergency landing in Bakersfield, California. His kind act has now made headlines making people love him even more. The 54-year-old acted cool under pressure as they were waiting at a closed airport for transportation to Los Angeles. One among the passengers captured the entire incident and shared the videos on social media from where it went viral.
Freelance cartoonist Brian Rea shared videos from Keanu boarding the plane to chatting with flight attendants. And when the plane had to go through an emergency landing, he tried to bring the situation under control by talking to passengers and comforting them. The plane had to be landed due to a mechanical issue, but they had to go through a two-hour drive to reach their destination.

Hey everyone- There’s been a lot of attention about a recent story I posted about an “adventure“ on a minibus with one of the great humanitarians (and fav actors) of our time. I don’t have anything to add other than that all the passengers were incredibly kind and lovely people, including the folks who took care of us in Bakersfield, CA. Perhaps though, with all this attention we can do some good. In the spirit of what a generous person Mr. Reeves is here are a few charities that you might consider donating to (if you don’t already). If you do have copies of the video (news outlets:), please attach links to these charities alongside them. Maybe we do a little good. 🙏 I posted direct links in my stories so you can easily click to each of these. 🚐🌴🦄💛 Song: It’s Such a Pretty World Today / Wynn Stewart #itssuchaprettyworldtoday www.sickkidsfoundation.com www.standuptocancer.org www.scorefund.org www.wildlifewaystation.org www.coachart.org/get-involved www.coachart.org www.stjude.org www.cityofhope.org/giving
Keanu chatted to the passengers throughout the journey telling them facts about Bakersfield. He even played some local music from his phone! Keany can be seen read from his phone, "It’s population is about 380,000, making it the 9th most popular city in California, and the 52nd most popular city in the nation." Eventually, the once-in-a-lifetime experience came to an end and people reached their homes safely. Following the encounter with the actor, Brian said that inspired from Keanu he is also planning to make donations to support charity work.
