Gerard Butler's got the body, the accent, AND the heart to give us all kinds of crushes!

That heart of his took him to Liberia in December to help out Mary's Meals, where he helped prep meals and bonded with the kids!

Here's what he said about the moving experience:

'This trip has inspired me to get more involved and hopefully will inspire other people. I wish people could spend one second or one minute that I've had here in these schools, with these families, as I do think anyone who has had that experience would get way more involved.'

Gerard didn't just decide to do this on a whim, either. He's actually been a part of the charity since 2010.

We're so happy that it wasn't just about feeding the kids, but also lifting spirits. Gerard played soccer with them and helped them plant food! They even danced!

He continued in a statement:

'Since 2010, I have come to know Mary’s Meals but I had no idea of what that really meant until I came to see what is possible with this organisation and the effect it can have on the lives of so many children. One of the things that I have been struck by during this visit is the strength of peoples' dignity and what I love about Mary’s Meals is that it is all about retaining that dignity.

'They don't just operate a free system where people are just taking; instead it is all about respecting and promoting the dignity of these people and their culture and what they are capable of. What I'm seeing here is that a lot of these communities are becoming more energised and alive, and what Mary’s Meals does is, that it helps create a sense of community that goes way beyond the feeding programme itself.'

Mary's Meals reaches 822,142 impoverished children every school day.

    PHILIP J. LANCE, Episcopal minister; Founder, President and Executive Director of PUEBLO NUEVO DEVELOPMENT [a nonprofit community development corporation]; CO-FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF CAMINO NUEVO CHARTER ACADEMY, MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA’S PRIZE EDUCATIONAL MODEL [a California Distinguished School given control of at least two schools under LAUSD’s Public Schools Choice Initiative]; owner and/or manager of at least one apartment complex since 2006, etc., IGNORED a January 2012 MOLD REPORT DOCUMENTATION OF HIGH LEVELS OF MOLD SPORES in one tenant’s apartment, then, illegally, retaliated (unsuccessfully attempting eviction three times) forcing that approximately 30-year tenant and her family out of the apartment.

    Two new sets of tenants were placed in units after Philip J. Lance became aware of the air contamination problem. The 30-year tenant was diagnosed with “Obstructive Pulmonary Disease”, a major killer of Americans, and, advised to move out of her apartment. One of her dogs died April 2012. The deadly Rhizopus/Aspergillus were identified in her apartment.

    The offices of the LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL, County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors have been contacted about the COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH and LOS ANGELES HOUSING DEPARTMENT's failure to act.

    My efforts were to no avail.
    October 2013 one of the tenants died.
