Paul Rudd's Birthday Wish Is For You To Help Him Cure Cancer

Paul Rudd is donating his birthday this year to the American Cancer Society. What does that mean? It means that instead of gifts, he’s asking friends, family, business associates and complete strangers to open up their wallets and donate their age. So, if you’re 30 years old, he’s asking you to donate $30. If you’re 65, donate $65. His goal is to raise $50,000.

Why the American Cancer Society? Rudd lost his father to cancer and wants to honor his memory with this fundraising initiative.

Rudd said, “My dad died of cancer. It’s horrible. I miss him so much and think of him every day. I’m not kidding, every day. Before he was diagnosed, I never really thought about cancer. It’s not one of those subjects any of us choose to spend our time thinking about. Since he died, I’ve learned that every one out of every two men and one out of every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.”

The actor doesn’t just want people to donate for his birthday. He encourages others to ask for donations instead of gifts when their birthday comes around.

Paul Rudd’s birthday is on April 6th. So far, he’s raised $4,535. He’s got fifteen days left to reach his goal.

As an Ecorazzi writer and cancer survivor, I say, “Thanks Paul. You’re the man.”
