He will support a charity initiative.
Another world star actor arrives in our country, but this time it’s not about a new film. Chuck Norris is visiting Hungary this year and is doing all this for supporting a noble cause. The 78-year-old American superstar arrives at the invitation of the Baptist Charity Service to become the guest star of the „Shoe Box” charity event. This initiative collects Christmas gifts to poor families and children. People who want to give should put the things they want to give in a shoebox – that’s where the name comes from. Only few know, but the actor grew up in a Baptist family, but religion only became important for him in his older age. According to information, Norris’ lecture in Budapest will be about conversion.
Before he became an actor, Chuck Norris competed as a professional martial artist. He won the professional middleweight title in karate in seven consecutive years; in 1969 he won Karate's triple crown for the most tournament wins of the year, and the Fighter of the Year award by Black Belt magazine. He started filming after these successes, but it is no exaggeration to say that the indelible world fame was brought to him by the internet meme published in 2005 and made him the biggest star ever since.
