Jack Black Meets A Homeless Boy Who Just Wants An Education


Jack Black recently spent the day with Felix, a 12-year-old homeless orphan from Uganda. As a young boy, Felix's mother passed away, and he never met his father. Felix shared, "The most (important) thing for me is learning...school."

Black spent the day getting to know Felix, and he joined Felix as he collected bottles to sell. Even though the young boy is doing what he can to make ends meet, he made it clear that education is his main priority. Hearing this really touched and impacted Black, bringing out a new side of the man who usually takes on the "funny guy" role.

"He wants an education, and I think that's not a lot to ask," Black said.
