This is a #peopledoinggood story for sure, that could happen around West Michigan, I'm looking at you, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell!

Mark Wahlberg is making news in the mitten state, after his foundation, the Wahlberg Youth Foundation, teamed up with Detroit area auto dealer, Feldman Automotive to help donate 1,100 tablets to Beaumont Health System, WNEM reports.

Jay Feldman of Feldman Automotive said they donated the tablets due to the isolation patients experience while battling COVID-19,

“I had just seen everybody on TV talking about how their loved ones are in the hospital and they can’t be with them and, I mean, you know, when you’re in the hospital, you’re in an emergency, you want to be surrounded by somebody,” Feldman said. “You want somebody that’s an advocate. You want family to be with you. The last thing you want is to be alone.”

Wondering why Mark Wahlberg chose Detroit to help out?  WNEM says it's because he has had some really good times and met good people in Detroit, Michigan,

“I’ve had some of the most moving and inspiring experiences of my adult life, especially as a parent and husband, meeting some amazing families there, meeting amazing men and women who have dedicated their lives to helping people,” Wahlberg said.
