GERARD BUTLER BASKS IN SOUTH BEACH SUN

Posted in Gerard Butler on December 6, 2010 by fadedblog

Gerard Butler hit up South Beach in Miami, Florida today (December 6) for some fun in the sun.

The big time actor and scenster has been in town enjoying Art Basel Miami Beach located in the Art Deco District combining top gallery selections with parties, events, music and more.

Meanwhile, Gerard recently made headlines when he presented an award to the founder of a Scottish charity for his work feeding hungry children.

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow flew to LA to pick up the prize of $25 000 for the charity Mary’s Meals which he founded in 1992.

Gerard said: “I’m proud because he’s a fellow Scot. Every day Magnus lets children know that they matter, that someone thousands of miles away cares about them.”

Gerard described the founding of Mary’s Meals, which happened when Magnus and his brother Fergus made a plan to deliver aid to Bosnia while having a drink at their local pub.

He said: “Whenever a story starts like this: ‘two brothers walk into a bar’, it doesn’t end well but this story is different. Magnus Macfarlane-Barrow walked into a bar with his brother. They were having a drink and talked about the heart-wrenching images of the Bosnian war they’d just seen on the TV. So they made an extraordinary decision that most of us don’t make. They decided to help.”

Mary’s Meals provides a school meal a day for almost 460,000 children in 16 countries. The prize money will be spent on school-feeding projects in Malawi, where the charity supports more than 12% of primary school children.
