Celebrities are real people too, especially when they do nice things to help out the community. Matthew McConaughey comes from a Southern family background and enjoys giving back to others, even on his birthday. On his 48th birthday on Nov. 4, Matthew walked around delivering 4,500 free turkeys to families in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky as part of a Wild Turkey initiative. He's a spokesman for the brand, but we still think it's very well done. Go Matthew!
