‘Avengers’ Star Robert Downey Jr. Teams Up To Help Build Playground For Children

As if saving the world isn't enough. 'Avengers: Infinity War' star Robert Downey Jr. gives children a new playground at Frank D Parent Elementary School.

Captain America may be seen as the boy scout on screen, but even Iron Man has a soft side to him. In a team effort with Random Act Funding (RAF), CAA, nonprofit organization Kaboom! and his wife Susan, Robert Downey Jr. helped give the children of Frank D Parent Elementary School a new playground.

It’s not the team fans usually see Downey with, but the good deeds are still being done. Whether it’s stopping a galactic disaster or putting up a new set of monkey bars, the Avengers actor still finds time for what he calls “a dose of do-goodery.” In his Instagram video posted three days ago, which you can watch below, you’ll see a touching montage that explains the project as it becomes a reality.


The playground’s design came from the kids themselves and managed to get parents, teachers and community members together to make it all happen. This should help a bit when it comes to winning the people over after that whole “creating Ultron” situation in the latest Avengers movie.
