Tom Shadyac, the director of blockbuster comedies like Liar, Liar and Bruce Almighty, became famous for giving up his riches in favor of a more simple lifestyle and filming a documentary about how to be happy.
Now, he is teaching University students to give back. As a reminder to keep playing even as they grow older, the college students he teaches all received new bikes from Shadyac. But the generosity didn’t stop there. The students were so grateful, they wanted to pay it forward in a big way.
They surprised hundreds of young scholars thriving in poverty at a Compton, California school. Watch the video from the Ellen show as the Tom and his class of college students give free new bikes to an entire school for being such an inspiration.
