Oscar winner Meryl Streep did something super nice for her fellow Best Actress nominee, Viola Davis.
She donated a $10,000 check to the Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts in honor of Viola who grew up in Central Falls, Rhode Island and has been supporting the school through her moral and financial help.
Recently, the building that houses the school has been in trouble. It's been scheduled to be sold for $1.2 million within the next 12-13 weeks, but hopefully, with the help of Viola, and now Meryl, the school can remain.
School founder Angelo Garcia said:
"We've just been screaming from the rooftops. [Viola has] always kept us on her radar."
Great work, ladies! Education is oh so important and you're just helping to make the world a better place.
Also, this should soften the blow of losing that Oscar to Meryl, right, Viola? Ha!
