Chris Pratt

Everyone is feeling pretty proud of themselves for making this ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a popular charitable trend, and it's hard to be cynical about something so silly doing so much good. Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt even partook in the challenge himself, but it's another heartwarming gesture of generosity that has a lump in our throats. Pratt was able to hook Marvel up with Children's Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of the sci-fi adventure for patients and their families at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles earlier this week. But that's not even the coolest part. More below!

Before the movie ended, Pratt snuck out of the theater and came back in as Star-Lord himself:

The Children's Hospital put the above photo on Twitter after Pratt spent hours in full costume, handing out toys from Guardians of the Galaxy, signing autographs, posing for pictures and letting everyone try on his hero hear. But there are also some children in the hospital who are too sick to attend a screening like that. So Pratt visited the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and the Pediatric ICU. But there was one little boy who really stole Pratt's heart. Dylan Prunty, a LEGO fanatic, recognized the actor's voice from The LEGO Movie, and Pratt spent some special time with him:

Pratt hung out with Prunty, gave him some Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO sets, signed his LEGO Movie bed set and quoted lines from the hit animated movie with him. This story (via E! Online) is overwhelmingly sweet, and it shows that Chris Pratt is nothing short of a real hero. It's incredible to see what Pratt is already doing with his newfound worldwide fame following the success of the Marvel film, and it's a powerful reminder that even when there's dark things happening around the globe, there's still good in the world.

Awesome of him for doing that, but a big shout out for the people who do that everyday who are not famous, namely the parents, families and volunteers.
