Today's Blind Items - Kindness

This foreign born B+ list mostly movie actress has been a kindness in the past. Once upon a time she did some very nice things for children at her offspring's school. Apparently at around that same time, she decided to establish an endowment for children who went to the high school of her offspring. She donated $1M and got a couple of her exes and a person who she yachted for back in the day to chip in another $4M for a total of $5M. It is enough to make sure that about 100 students a year can go to college and not have to worry about any loans.

IndieRaga said...

$5 million puts only 100 kids through college?!!
WTF?!
This is a horror blind!

sandybrook said...

college is very expensive

gauloise said...

@Indie I think it means the endowment is 5 Mill, the interest off this investment will pay the tuition fees for 100 students a year.

But saying this, did this famous actress actually send her kids to public school? Or is this so private school kids don't need to deal with debt?

Alf Landon said...

Harvard-Westlake costs $40K per year -so yes only 100

Alf Landon said...

Beckinsale daughter went there.

Sd Auntie said...

So helping already well to do kids go to University. 🤐

IndieRaga said...

Yeah....I missed that point completely!
Why would an actress send her kids to public school?!

Joe said...

Yeah if it's Harvard Westlake those kids don't need help going to college. Help out any of the many, many disadvantaged schools in the area instead.

Troy Dyer said...

First thought was Kate Beckinsale
There are some “disadvantaged” kids that are smart enough (and some would say lucky enough) to get a scholarship to private schools. Hopefully the money goes to these kids and not the Olivia Jade types

Sook said...

Whoever this is, God bless them. That is incredibly generous.

Sd Auntie said...

If it only went to public school. I went to private school and only a handful would need assistance.

Da Fresh Prince said...

Huh, I've heard some not nice things about Beckinsale but this was a nice thing to do if it was her!

gauloise said...

No private school has a 100 students a year needing a scholarship.

Soapdish said...

My kids went to a private school. Catholic schools are considered private schools. Many many kids would need assistance. Not all are well to do.

Moose said...

Wait...Kate Beckinsale yachted?

Snifter said...

Not surprised she got her exes to contribute. Michael Sheen seems very generous, and they seem on good terms.

Side note- I'd ride him like a jockey. I know he's been on this site for some poor behavior, but it's not like I'm trying to marry him, I just want to see what all the fuss is about. 😘

Also, it's not just rich kids that deserve a top notch education. Good for her for helping out.

MJ said...

whoever is, this is GREAT..love this kind of " kindness", one of the few charitable acts that are actually useful

A whore with a heart of gold, tail as old as time.

Da Fresh Prince said...

Michael Sheen was in that recent Good Omens TV show, yes? Was that him?

kelli grrrl said...

@Da Fresh Prince — Yup, he was the angel with white hair. 😀

@Snifter — I agree with your side note! I’ve always wondered about that, uh, side of him. 😜

Snifter said...

He's been in a ton of stuff, Good Omens was a big one. He's in Prodigal Son right now. Got a 25 yr old girlfriend too, new baby. Gotta have something something!

Zebra Seasoning said...

$40K a year to go to school. I wonder how much the teachers get paid.

TwoDots said...

Am I the only one that thinks Kate B is kind of a douche? Girl loves her tabloid attention, and her acting skills are...so-so at best

DarylsBigFan said...

She made it because she is gorgeous

Boo Kitty said...

Oh but that would be communism.
