Antonio Banderas Funds College Scholarships

Antonio Banderas's Lagrimas y Favores (Tears and Favors) Foundation has donated over $150,000 for college scholarships, aid for cancer victims, and to help people currently down and out from the economic crisis. The actor also recently endowed his native Malaga, Spain with 75,000 euros ($108,000) in scholarships to enable students to take postgraduate courses at universities in the United States and Canada.

"The whole world," he said, is in "a very tough, very deep crisis that is causing suffering to lot of people."

"We're not going to fix the problems of the whole world, but we have a great belief in the work the foundation is doing," the actor said.
