    While Colin may not be taking action currently, he has in the past put effort toward solving the homelessness crisis. Over the years, he's partnered with the Homeless World Cup Foundation.

    Thank you to Colin Farrell for speaking out about homelessness in Los Angeles and for your support over the years❤️ When you are homeless it's easy to feel invisible, thank you for asking people to take notice. #ColinFarrell @IamWandaSykes #Kimmel https://t.co/dYhSsjNoij
