Matthew McConaughey decided that for his 48th birthday he’s giving back.

The actor chose to spend his birthday by delivering free frozen turkeys to the people of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky on Saturday.

McConaughey often does charity work with the non-profit organization he co-founded with his wife Camila. The foundation is called “Just keep livin'” and is committed to the health and well-being of youth. This time he helped Butterball and 250 volunteers to deliver a total of 4,500 free turkeys.

A video posted to the actor’s Facebook page, shows McConaughey telling volunteers that “We believe in our family that the more you’re thankful for, the more that you show gratification, the more that you’re gonna create in your life to be thankful for. Let’s go make some people happy and put some smiles on some faces, deliver some turkeys, there’s some people that are gonna be happy to get ‘em.”

Many people overwhelmed with the sweet gesture took to Instagram and shared their moment with the star.

Happy birthday Matthew!
