Anthony Mackie helping his community IRL further solidifies my love for him as our new Captain America
"Captain America is more than just a shield and a movie. You really have to step into the community and help people from where you're from." Anthony Mackie, via E! News
he posted more about the project on his instagram, and there's a handful of other articles and interviews going around online as well.
the tl;dr of it all is that he's supporting a team that's repairing 500 roofs to homes that were damaged in natural disasters (throughout the gulf coast, so most likely hurricane damage.) the partnership also includes training local youth in roofing trades, and providing resources to local non-profits so that they can hire them.
seeing this just really made my heart swell and I'm shocked that nobody's talking about it so here I am. This is what I want from modern celebrity culture, people who take their roles seriously and use their platform to do some good. I'm so glad that he's our Cap now and hope he continues to do cool stuff like this.
edit: thanks to u/Own-Ad5898 for the link to this other article of some more cool good stuff he's doing! "Anthony Mackie To Open Film & TV Studio In New Orleans; City Mayor Supports Decision" via Deadline.
