Hugh Donates $10,000 to Montreal Children’s Hospital

Ever the philanthropist, Hugh Jackman – and wife, Deborra-Lee Furness – recently donated an amazing $10,000 to the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Remember: Hugh has spent much of the last few months in Montreal, filming for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. It’s wonderful seeing him give back to the community. Read more information on the generous donation below:

On Tuesday afternoon, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness called up the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation after she tried to donate to the hospital online and things went amok.

“She had tried to make the donation via her computer but the confirmation she got said that she had given $10 so she called us up,” said Kim Fraser who works for the Foundation. “She wanted to make the donation on behalf of her, her husband, and the cast and crew of X-Men.”

Sadly, the handsome Jackman did not visit the offices of the kids hospital foundation personally but his credit card payment was approved.
