Rebel Wilson has managed to place 20 school graduates from Tanzania into university using her enormous $250,000 (£182,000) winnings from Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?.
The actress shared a video of the some of the students she has sponsored since 2016, who are living out their dreams in further education.
Posting the clip on her Instagram, Rebel wrote: ‘School of St Jude in Tanzania graduates who are now going to University.
‘I am so proud of the 20 @schoolofstjude graduates who now are funded to go to university using the $250 000 prize money I just won on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire last month.
‘Good luck with your studies! All these scholars are outstanding and shout out to Anna, Joseph, Enoch and Rachel who I brought out to the US in 2016 and who are now crushing it!
‘And of course to Winnie, my OG sponsor child at @schoolofstjude who is amazing! Miss you guys and sending lots of love!’
In the montage, one of the students, Anna, said she couldn’t believe the 40-year-old won $250,000 on the big-budget quiz show.
‘Your sponsoring of tertiary scholarships of more 20 students for the entirely of their degree and in less than five years we’ll have more doctors, engineers, accountants and scientists in Tanzania because of you!’ she said.
During her stint on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Rebel gambled her own money because she was so confident in her answers.
And it paid off.
Although Rebel had already won $125,000 (£95,000) for the School of St. Jude in Arusha, Tanzania, she was only guaranteed to take home $32,000 (£23,000) if she picked the wrong answer.
The generous star promised to put forward $93,000 (£67,000) in case she lost the school thousands.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? airs on ABC in the US.
