Seeing as the final season of Entourage started last night, today I thought I would focus on the man behind the show, executive producer Mark Wahlberg, in Stars Do Good.
Entourage is loosely based on Mark Wahlberg’s early days in Hollywood, when he was an up and coming actor. Now that Wahlberg is ‘living the dream’, he is giving back to others with the formation of The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation (established in May 2001).
The mission of this foundation is to ” improve the quality of life for inner city youth through a working partnership with other youth organizations. Our goal is to remove and eliminate barriers that prevent youth from succeeding. Our mission is to assist youth in order to ensure that no child is limited or prevented from attaining their lifetime goal or dream due to financial circumstances. Through the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, we will provide financial and community support to assist in making the dreams and ultimate potential of inner city youth become a reality.”
