Duhamel has joined Share a Meal to help fight childhood hunger. His need to help others started from a simple holiday wish.

"Last year before Christmas, my wife kept asking me what I wanted for the holidays," Duhamel wrote.

We both spent the day volunteering together at our local food bank, an experience that was more rewarding than I ever could have expected."

This isn't the first time Duhamel has worked to help others and he said the simple gift helped him realize that hunger is a yearlong battle for many people — and he decided to make it a yearlong fight for himself, as well.

The people in line who needed food were often indistinguishable from the volunteers. Hunger isn't always something you can see. Hungry kids look just like other kids."

"I couldn't imagine being faced with the struggle of wondering where the family's next meals will be coming from, or the heartbreak and anguish that it must cause the parents and children.

"If we don't help our neighbors, who will?"
