The former One Tree Hill star visited Women & Children's Hospital in his hometown of Buffalo last week (ends25Dec15) and spent time chatting with patients, explaining he was inspired to make the donation to the Child Life department following the birth of his first child with wife Sarah Roemer in May (15).

"You do everything for the kids," he told The Buffalo News. "We just had a child - my wife and I, Sarah - and she knows how much I love this town. Buffalo is everything to me. I was actually born in Children' (hospital), and so was my father. That's two generations. So, for me to be able to give back at any time ... "

"Most importantly, I want the kids who come here... to have a good time, to have toys and games and forget about all the heavy stuff in life and truly enjoy themselves," he continued. "That's what this was about for me."

During his visit, Murray also recalled the time he spent at the hospital following a life-saving surgery when he was 15.
