Matthew McConaughey has talked about a new partnership between his JK Livin Foundation and Think Together that will see his charity help children in schools across Southern California.

“My whole goal is to get the program that worked, that we started at one school, then we went to two then we went to three, it took three years to do that, and then things got solid and we started branching out in large packs like this,” he told JustJared.com. "So now with this partnership we can grow in larger increments now. That’s the plan – to make it successful here, see how fast it grows as long as it is working, and as long as it keeps working it keeps spreading in more schools, that’s the idea.

“I’ve had the instincts to help since I was a kid. I was raised that way. As a kid I was pushed to go give time in my community and it felt good. You learn as a kid. I learned from my parents that people that have, and people that are in a position that can, then give back in a way you can. The challenge is to find out which way to do that, which way is best for you that makes it personal but yet it’s something people need, because there are a million things people need. What do we do with my organization is something I love doing day to day.”
