by ChinaBambi

Downey Jr. worked in conjunction with Microsoft One Note‘s #CollectiveProject and Albert Manero, a Fulbright scholar and mechanical engineer whose organization Limbitless Solutions helps provide 3D-printed prosthetics to people around the world.

While doing the good deed, Downey Jr. maintained his famously suave persona.
