Actor Cory Monteith was a beautiful soul. His awareness of his own struggles led him to reach out to young people all over the world with deep compassion and empathy to help them through their struggles.
Cory wanted other young people to have the chance to discover their strengths and potential through the arts and he was deeply committed to ending youth homelessness working with Richard Branson’s ‘Virgin Unite’ homeless charity set up to help with homeless teenagers, Cory also worked with organisations like ‘Foyer’ in the UK, inspiring and giving a lifeline of hope to young people who were overwhelmed that he took the time to walk beside them to listen and share his own story.
It is with with deep sadness that we join with others to thank Cory for all he did to make a difference in other young people’s lives. We applaud his work to end youth homelessness and call upon all of us to continue this work to ensure that millions of young people no longer live on the streets.
Fox TV officials had described Monteith as “an exceptional talent” and its such a tragic loss to hear of his death which we now know is down to substance abuse and we can only imagine the demons he suffered but in his efforts to help the homeless we are sure he was also an inspiration to some of the most vulnerable people in todays society. From all of us trying so hard to bring this message across at UK Homeless and Broken Films our thoughts go out to his family who I hope can take some comfort knowing he felt compelled to doing so much good for those less fortunate in his short life. RIP Cory Monteith your legacy and memory will live on. https://ukhomelessnessblog.wordpress.com
