Although actor Josh Duhamel has been out of the country doing press for his film, 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' the Minot, North Dakota native isn't letting distance stand in the way ofhelping those in his hometown affected by recent, devastating floods. In fact, Duhamel's efforts to garner aid have been so effective that the city of Minot has just named Josh an honorary chairman for the flood's recovery fund.
"I spent the first 22 years of my life in Minot and still have family living there, including my sister and her family who have lost their house to floodwaters," said Duhamel in a released statement. "Minot will always be home to me, and it breaks my heart to see the devastation the city and its residents are going through. People from Minot are strong and come together in a time of need, and I know they'll get through this. But with everyone's help, we can make it easier for them to restore their lives and the surrounding Minot area."
