Pranks are always a good way to to spread laughter, but its even better when its for a good cause and this prank is definitely for a great cause!!

Arnold Schwarzenegger stepped into a new character by the name of Howard at Gold's Gym in Venice, California. He decided to prank the Gold Gym's members mainly to raise awareness and money for the After-School All-Stars.

The After-School All-Stars is a nationwide program that provides free mentorship, homework help, tutoring and lots of fun activities to students with low-income families. Schwarzenegger has always been very passionate for after school programs as he founded the After-School All-Stars program in 1992.

Donors who gave at least $10 to the organization will be entered for a chance to win 2 tickets to Los Angeles and will ride with Arnold in his personal Sherman Tank. How awesome is that!? And of course, to sweeten the deal, Arnold will match every dollar donated.

Check out how 'Howard' greets people, gives fitness tips and all for a great cause ... kids!!
