I don't know why didn't share this one last Christmas, but when I read the story about how Kathy Hilton rounded up donations from celebrities to auction them for Make A Wish it reminded me of it. Speaking of Kathy Hilton, and I do so with only great trepidation, the only reason anyone knows about her donation efforts is because she told all the media. No one was paying attention to her and what she was doing and that just didn't sit right with her, so she started calling the media to bring attention to what she was doing. Why can't anyone just do something just to do it? That is why I love the kindness blinds I run. The subjects are only doing it for good, and not the glory or pats on the back.
Anyway, last year this B list film actress with A+ name recognition was going through money at very healthy clip to support her drug addiction. Tired of stealing from her friends at parties, she came up with a grand scheme. She said she was collecting donations for a toys for tots like organization, but since it was overseas she needed cash instead of unwrapped presents. $50,000 in donations later, she had herself one hell of a holiday season. The only reason she got busted on it was because the idiot offered some coke to a person she had previously plead poverty to. When asked where she got the money for the coke, she told the person about her scam. In her drug addled confusion she forgot that her fellow coke sniffer had been one of the contributors to the cause.
