Katrina Homes Neighborhoods
Matthew McConaughey and Mako the Corvette
Matthew McConaughey has spent many nights driving to Mexico with one of his greatest loves, but he decided to give her up—and with good reason.

Her name is Mako—like the shark—and she's a 1971 Chevy Stingray Corvette. Matthew decided to auction off his baby on eBay® to raise money for Oprah's Angel Network. His plan was to build a playground in Houston for all the evacuees who relocated to Angel Lane after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Matthew's been committed to Angel Lane and the 65 families in the neighborhood for well over a year.

"We schedule our work. We schedule our vacations. Service is the harder one, selfishly sometimes, to schedule. But I've noticed that for me and for everybody that I know that signs up to go give some time to something, as soon as you're done, it feels like the vacation from the inside out," Matthew says.
