It is pretty incredible that someone like Carson Wentz uses his celebrity for good. Someone with such a celebrity status could easily forget the people and the place they once knew. But the North Dakota A-listers have done a solid job at giving back to the people here. Another example, off the top of my head, is when Josh Duhamel was married to Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas played a benefit concert for Minot back in 2011!
