Arnold Schwarzenegger has donated $250,000 (£186,700) to provide 25 “tiny homes” for war veterans in California.

The small room-sized housing units with beds and heating will help former military personnel get off the streets.

“This is what Christmas is all about,” the Terminator actor wrote on Twitter.

“All of you have the power to do something for someone else this holiday season.

“It doesn’t have to be big. Just give a few minutes of your time to help someone else.”

Since he made his donation public, The Issue Is reported that dozens have donated to the same charity, Village for Vets.

The former California governor said continuously giving back to “this country that means everything to me” makes him “feel good”.

“We brought everyone together and there was no one that said it couldn’t be done.”
