Hello readers. It’s been a while so I thought I’d just check in.
I know I’ve written in the past about things that drive me crazy about my celebrity. All the mystery bloggers have. But there’ll also be the moments when there’s nothing nasty to report. That’s where I am today.
My celebrity has a bunch of charities, and also gives to a bunch of charitable causes. Often anonymously. I think that’s pretty cool. What would you do if you had all the money these people have? At first, the obvious thing most people say is: pay my bills! get a car! pay off my mom’s mortgage! Well, those make total sense. Then what?
My celebrity did all those things long ago, so now he gives to “causes” that he believes in. Everyone does somehting different. Some like animals. Others gravitate towards children’s causes. Or curing diseases. Or relief for places in the news, like the recent work Unicef and Clay Aiken are doing in Somalia. It’s all good as far as I’m concerned.
Recently we gave money to a local school that wrote asking for a very small amount of money to replace a sink in the kindergarten for kids to wash their hands, and new tables to sit at during lunchtime. Yes, we get the requests for a half million dollars for something too. But this simple request was touching and seemed the right thing to do.
Sometimes the celebrity does do the right thing.
