The charity gifting preparation kicked off at the national entertainment venue and bowling alley, Lucky Strike Live.
200 bags were filled with blankets, clothes, toys, and food to give to the homeless communities of Los Angeles. Keo, after sharing his desire to spread some hope this Thanksgiving Day to those who don’t have a home to call their own, the once 100-bag venture turned into a 200-bag venture proving that “You are not alone…We are all here for one another…. Love wins.”

Barbara Corcoran immediately came onboard to support the philanthropic cause saying, “Thanksgiving is not only the time to be thankful for our friends and family, but to think of others less fortunate and I think this is a truly wonderful cause and way to support that.”
Sasha Pieterse joined the initiative. “We’ve been given so many opportunities and things to be grateful for, I think it’s time to give back and share these blessings.”
Talking about his inspiration for the endeavor, Keo recalls a time when he knew he had to do more “It was Thanksgiving and I bought food and drove around trying to find someone to give it to and then behind a major department store I saw a woman with a small child in the car parked sitting against the wall. I went over and offered her the food and she just started crying— that’s a feeling you never forget. At that moment, I just knew I wanted to do more.”
