The one and only Keanu Reeves has pledged to gift one lucky fan a 15-minute-long Zoom date in aid of children’s charity, Camp Rainbow Gold.
Based in Idaho, US, Camp Rainbow Gold is a children’s cancer organisation which works to provide emotionally empowering experiences to young people with cancer. The breath-taking Zoom prize is now up for auction, with the proceeds going to the charitable cause.
Camp Rainbow Gold describes the Keanu prize as follows: “Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him. This is truly priceless and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home! Get your questions ready and spend 15-minutes with actor, director, producer and musician, Keanu Reeves.”
As expected, a date with Mr. Reeves doesn’t come cheap, with the bidding kicking off at a huge $10,000. At the time of writing, bidding has already reached $17,600 USD, and it’s likely to keep rising.

This isn’t the first time that Good Guy Keanu has done his bit for charity. According to a report from the Epoch Times last year, Reeves said in a 2009 interview: “I have a private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research. I don’t like to attach my name to it; I just let the foundation do what it does.”
The report also says that Reeves has donated to SCORE (Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment), which is a charity that was founded after a UCLA hockey player’s spinal cord was damaged during a game.
He even worked the phones at a Stand Up to Cancer telethon in 2008.
His charity work is just a drop in the bucket of nice-guy goodness performed by Reeves, who actually must have been holding the top spot on Santa’s gift list for the past 30 years.
We love you Keanu!
