Actor Nicolas Cage is backing a campaign in England to build a new intensive care unit for babies.
Cage – who owns a property in the city of Bath – is supporting the Royal United Hospital’s Forever Friends Appeal to help raise $4.5 million. To kick off the campaign, he purchased a “virtual brick” to symbolize the building materials needed to build the environmentally-friendly hospital ward, and encouraged others to do the same.
“Please buy a brick, this is the last stretch to get that extra million, and it will be a green facility which is outstanding,” said the actor. “I would like to say thank you to all of you who have been so gracious in inviting me and giving me a warm welcome to your wonderful and historic city. Anything that I can do to give back and say thanks I am going to do.”
