Top Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey speaks for autism

Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey has teamed up with top skincare company Kiehl to support a campaign dedicated to autism.

The Oscar winning-actor's support will benefit the Autism Speaks organisation.

The star, who is famous for films like Interstellar, has made a special video with the message that children with autism need support and they need it right now.

For every share the video receives, Kiehl plans to donate US$1, which is about Rs 70 to Autism Speaks until they reach their target of US$200,000.

Autism affects an estimated 70 million people worldwide. The actor and his wife also have a charity called Just Keep Living, which has after-school programmes for kids on the autism spectrum.
