Ashton Kutcher returned to his Iowa hometown on Thursday to surprise students who helped raise money for his charity.

The 39-year-old paid a visit to Oskaloosa High School in Cedar Rapids, where he met over 700 students who helped raise money for Native Fund, a non-profit the actor launched with former football player Dallas Clark, another native Iowan.


Native Fund works to aid residents of the Midwestern state who find themselves in need. The unsuspecting students at Oskaloosa High assembled in the auditorium, where they were greeted by Kutcher. “Just because you’re a kid from Iowa, don’t think you can’t have big dreams,” he told the children after expressing his gratitude for their work. The star’s wife Mila Kunis reportedly joined the actor at the school and posed for photos with the students, who helped to collect $4,000. Kutcher is set to receive the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award in recognition for his efforts. He will accept the prize, which is given to individuals demonstrating admirable characteristics similar to Iowa’s former Governor Robert Ray, on Saturday.
