He sings, he dances, he acts, and now heâ€™s saving the world one classroom at a time.Â Neil Patrick HarrisÂ has been in showbiz since he was in grade school himself, and now that heâ€™s all grown up and has kids of his own heâ€™s made it his mission to give back to teachers all across the country.
Harris points out that â€œ96 percent of teachers wind up over $700 out-of-pocket on school supplies and random things for their classrooms.â€ He has partnered with Quaker Chewy andÂ AdoptAClassroom.orgÂ to help ease the financial burden so many teachers face at the beginning of each school year.
When heâ€™s not giving back, heâ€™s spending time with his husband,Â David Burtka, and their two children, Harper and Gideon. This past summer, the family packed their bags and traveled all over the globe. â€œWe took the kids to Venice, Italy, Hvar, Croatia. That was a lot,â€ says Harris. â€œThat said, itâ€™s kind of nice to be back. When the veneer wears off, you realize youâ€™re wearing the same pants in rotation for a month â€” it becomes less exciting,â€ he jokes.
Harris isnâ€™t just a triple threat when it comes to talent â€” heâ€™s a quadruple one, having added â€œauthorâ€ to his list of skills. Harris has been writing a series of books for kids called The Magic Misfits. The third book was recently released, and heâ€™s currently working on the fourth.
â€œMagic is my hobby, so each book contains five different magic tricks that kids can learn,â€ he says. â€œI created this group of kids, who use magical powers like cards and coins and things â€” practical magic â€” and they use that to help stop a secret organization thatâ€™s trying to infiltrate their town. Iâ€™m really authentically proud of them.â€
