We Heart Paul Rudd And His Activism For Kids Who Stutter

Movie star Paul Rudd may be known for his hilarious turns in “Anchorman” and “Knocked Up,” but to the folks at the Stuttering Association for the Young, he’s also known as one smooth bowler.

On January 22, Paul Rudd will host his 6th Annual All-Star Bowling Benefit for SAY at Lucky Strike in New York City. We were fortunate to attend last year’s benefit, which included a “Hamilton: The Musical” star’s amazing spin on Rihanna’s song “Stay,” inspiring performances from SAY’s kids, and of course, lotsa bowling. (Though we not disclose our score…) Not only is the event so much fun thanks to Paul Rudd and the SAY team, it’s also a very successful one. Last year’s fundraising goal was exceeded, and we’re positive this year’s will be too!

At ThatHelps, we’re especially thankful for celebrities who give their time to great causes as well as money, like Ryan Reynolds, Nina Dobrev, and Ms. Rih… It’s easy enough for someone famous to lend their name to a cause or write a check. Paul Rudd’s continued advocacy for kids who stutter funds SAY’s incredible work, like their life-changing summer camp, speech therapy, and Confident Voices After-School & Weekend programs. And the time he spends with the SAY kids at the benefit is truly inspiring — and did we mention fun?

SAY’s not the only great cause Paul Rudd supports with his time and talent — check out even more ways he gives back. We’re thankful to Paul Rudd for all he does to help young people who stutter.
