Alan Rickman made this video with a tortoise eating a strawberry to help the refugee crisis

Posted by in videos

Alan Rickman did a lot of great things when he was alive.

News broke on Thursday that the acting star had died of cancer aged 69.

The world mourned - sharing some of Rickman's most memorable moments, his funny pranks, and that time he stirred a cup of tea really, really slowly.

There's also the time he talked about a tortoise munching on a strawberry.

Rickman, with his monotone, telling voice, narrated this video - released just last month - to help raise money for charities Save the Children and the Refugee Council.

A caption on the video reads:

By watching this, you have donated to Save the Children and Refugee Council. YouTube gives advertising revenue to whoever uploads a video. The more views on the video, the more money we receive. We will pass all that money on to charities (LINKS BELOW). Share this video to make an impact. With thanks to Alan Rickman.
