Arnold Schwarzenegger, 74, donated 25 pre-fab, fully-equipped tiny homes to homeless veterans in Los Angeles, US, publishes RT.
The actor and former California governor donated $250,000 to Village for Vets, an organization that provides emergency services to the homeless and at-risk veterans in the area, to build these shelters, according to FOX11.
Schwarzenegger, who was present at Housewarming on Thursday, said this was the perfect Christmas present.
“Today I celebrated Christmas in advance. 25 homes I donated to homeless veterans have been installed here in Los Angeles,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “It was great spending time with our heroes and welcoming them into their new homes.”

The representative also thanked the Office of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and United States Veterans Affairs (AMVets) for their assistance in implementing this project. “We’ve shown that when we all work together, we can solve any problem,” he said.
According to Rob Reynolds of AMVets, every tiny home has electricity, heating, and air conditioning.
These constructions, which are intended as temporary shelters, have enough space for a bed and storage of belongings. Village for Vets explains that it “provides a higher standard of living than tent camps while veterans are on their way to finding permanent housing and settlement.”
