Actor Dwayne Johnson really does have a heart of gold!
Last month, Johnson spent his Thanksgiving treating his fans to a special free screening of his film “Red Notice.” He also surprised one Navy veteran by giving them a car. His original plan was to give the “proud & humble” veteran the Porsche that he drives in the film, but they said no.
“But I still said, yes,” Johnson wrote. “I’ll do one better. I’ll give away my personal custom truck as the gift. My baby.”
That’s right: Johnson decided to give this veteran – who also takes care of his 75-year-old mother and provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence – his own personalized truck.
Johnson Wins People’s Champion Award For His ‘Unwavering’ Philanthropy
Earlier this month, Johnson stunned fans at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards when he won the People’s Champion Award – and then announced that he was giving it away!
Johnson was selected for the annual award due to his “contributions to the entertainment industry, entrepreneurial endeavors, and unwavering commitment to supporting children and families in need through multiple philanthropic partnerships.”
However, the “Jungle Cruise” actor revealed that he was going to give the award away to a Make-A-Wish recipient named Shushan.
“I met her earlier. I told her how inspired I was by her story,” Johnson told audiences. “She is a survivor. She has fought literally for her life. She has inspired her family, her friends, now you guys here, now the world that is watching.”

On Christmas Eve, The Rock took to his Instagram account to post a video of the award, engraved with her name.
“This People’s Champ Award is for you, Shushan,” he wrote.
“I had your name engraved on it and it’ll be delivered to your home next week,” he continued. “It was an honor to meet you and your family. And it was a privilege to hand this to you on stage.”
“Your warrior spirit as a survivor is inspiring and beautiful,” he added. “Keep inspiring all of us with your resilience and strength ~ and thank you and your family so much for inviting me over for a HUGE ARMENIAN MEAL!!!”
“I have Armenian babies so you KNOW I’M READY TO CHOW DOWN!!!” he joked. “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to you and your family.”
Dwayne Johnson Celebrates Christmas With His Family
Johnson couldn’t help but plug his own brand of tequila – Teremana – when he posted a snap early on Christmas morning.
“I got a chilled @teremana with Santa’s name on it, when he rolls through tonight,” Johnson joked.
“130am and finally able to exhale,” he continued. “All the gifts put out, letters written, cookie crumbles left behind and a little milk left at the bottom of the glass.”
“Girls will be up in about 4hrs with the energy of two tornados,” he joked. “Bring it on. Man, I love Christmas! Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays to you and your families.”
He joked, “We’ll sleep next year.”
