Arnold Schwarzenegger (76) creates a festive atmosphere in Los Angeles. As part of a charity drive in the Boyle Heights neighborhood, volunteers at the youth center distributed thousands of toys to children in need. A Hollywood star also participated in the campaign. In a video shared on social media, Schwarzenegger explained what inspired him to stand up for others: When he visited America in the late 1960s, people at his gym supported him.

Arnold Schwarzenegger felt “included here in America.”

Schwarzenegger says in the video: “When I came to this country, my friends at Colts Gym threw me a big Christmas and invited me over to their house. It was wonderful.” The action star continued: “They gave me Christmas presents and they had this beautiful Christmas tree.” He felt “included here in America,” “even though I was a foreigner coming to this country. ,” he recalled.

Schwarzenegger now wants to pass on this feeling to others. He’ll never forget that kind of kindness and belonging, “and that’s why I wanted to do the same thing when I had the money,” he added. “That’s why I’ve been coming to the youth center for over 30 years, giving gifts and donations,” said the actor and former governor of California. “It makes me happy to share that kindness and inspire others to do the same.”
