Jack Black recently travelled to Uganda to meet with
underprivileged kids as part of the Red Nose Day campaign. The campaign aims to
raise awareness and money for impoverished children and young adults. In the
clip below, Jack meets with Felix, a 12-year-old homeless boy.
In the beginning, Jack promises his
viewers that he’ll try his best to gold back tears and not cry, but this proves
to be very difficult. While visiting an underprivileged community, Jack speaks
about the good he sees in the locals, even though the town in tarnished by
desperation and danger. “It’s no place for a kid to grow up,” he says, fighting
When he talks to Felix, he is
immediately overcome with emotion as he listens to the homeless boy. Felix
simply has one wish – he wants an education.
“He wants an education, and I think
that’s not a lot to ask,” the actor says.
