For his latest film "Time Out of Mind," Gere played the role of a homeless man who is hoping to rekindle his relationship with his daughter. The actor had to go undercover for the role and witnessed the many struggles homeless people face on a day to day basis.

The photo, which quickly went viral, described how Gere went around and gave every homeless person he saw $100 and encouraged others to help if they could.
