Sandra Bullock donates $5,000 to struggling former Beverly Hills hotel pool manager

Svend Petersen, long-time Pool Manager of the Beverly Hills Hotel, is going through some tough times. In an interview with CBS-2, Petersen explained his heart wrenching situation.

"Sometimes I go three or four days without food," Petersen, 89, said. "As long as I have something to drink, I'm happy."

Aware of Petersen's dire situations, a friend started a GoFundMe campaign to help him get back on his feet. The original goal was to raise approximately $5,900, enough money to help him find an apartment in Los Angeles and to help him with groceries. But, thanks to the generosity of many, the campaign has raised over $33,000 in just 11 days.

After hearing about Petersen's story, Sandra Bullock took it upon herself to donate $5,000 to the campaign. And, wrote the following message on his GoFundMe page, "Everything is going to be ok!" Louis Bullock (My son)." The 52-year-old actress is one of over 400 people who have donated so far.
