COLD STEEL AND A HEART OF GOLD
Roy Rogers played a hero on-screen and off-screen, displaying the noble qualities that go with the role. He spent a lifetime caring for the less fortunate, adopted several children, visited hospitals and created the Happy Trails Children's Foundation for severely abused and neglected children. Roy Rogers was always grateful to his fans who had made him a success and felt a responsibility to share his blessings, care for the needy and love the forgotten. In Roy's own words, "Who am I to be the beloved hero of millions of people? I'm just a hillbilly, an ignorant hillbilly boy from Duck Run".
