Chris Pratt Makes $500,000 Donation in Memory of His Dad

Chris Pratt just made a massive donation to the Boys and Girls Clubs in memory of his late dad, Dan Pratt.

The 37-year-old Passengers actor donated $500,000 to the Lake Stevens club to make the Dan Pratt Memorial Teen Center. The funds were raised through an Omaze campaign in which fans donated for the chance to win a trip to the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

“I have never been more grateful in my life. My hometown of Lake Stevens, Washington just broke ground on the Dan Pratt Memorial Teen Center. Thank you so much to the folks at Omaze for all your hard work, and to all the people around the world who donated through the campaign,” Chris wrote on Facebook. “We couldn’t have done it without you. I just handed the teen center committee a $500,000.00 check like on publishers clearing house. What a trip! That’s half a million dollars! We broke ground! It’s gonna be fabulous too! The plans are amazing.”

    You can donate quietly and avoid having to use that to prop up your slipping public image only if you and your wife would 1/ stop harming rescue animals through neglect, 2/ giving annoying elderly cats (a family member for no less than 14 years) away on Twitter, and 3/ subjecting poor animals to the cruelty of hunting and justifying it because you claim you “eat what you kill.”

    He hunts and says it’s okay because he eats it. No way of stunning animals during hunts unless you bullseye on the first go.
