Vincent

Vincentby Rebelwolf

Most people recognise the actor Vincent D'Onofrio particularly in his TV role as Bobby Goren in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. However, away from the screen, he is a very private person and not so much is known about the real man. Vincent is one of those special people who does a lot of charity work quietly, usually for causes that don't tend to get a huge amount of public attention.

One such cause is the Utah Meth Cops Project which works so hard to raise funds for a special de-tox program for police officers who put their own lives and health at risk by subjecting themselves to harmful chemicals whilst dismantling hundreds of toxic methamphetamine labs.

The Utah Meth Cops Project is the only one of its kind, dedicated to helping these heroes regain the health and quality of life they lost by putting themselves on the line.

Every year, Vincent donates time and money to the Meth Cops Project and it is something he feels very passionately about. These people are heroes, risking their own lives to protect others and although I am not from the US, this project is something that is close to my heart as my father was a police office here in the UK and shared similar risks on a daily basis.

I love, admire and respect Vincent so much, not just as an actor but for his commitment and support to, what I believe, is a truly worthwhile cause...a chance to say thank you to the heroes of our world!
