Yet Honey Boo Boo gets all the attention

/Good for that kid. And good for his parents

Well deserved hero tags all around.
 
2012-09-06 01:20:52 PM
Aww, that's just so gosh-darned sweet. What a cool kid.

This is the kind of stuff I'd like to do if I won the lottery: anonymous donations to worthy causes. Like you see a story on the news about a homeless high-school valedictorian who gets into Harvard. Boom! Here's your tuition, kid. Study hard and have a good life.

That would be fun.

He's just using the donation as a write off to get out of paying taxes. What a jerk.
 
2012-09-06 05:01:20 PM
Way to go, kid. You have a bright future ahead of you. :)

How come no one chipped in for my knee surgery??

Then she told me he asked how much chemo this would buy Cara.

That sounds so weird to any first-world citizen who isn't American.
 
2012-09-06 05:14:50 PM
Nice to see a heart-warming story like this when the media is dominated by politics.

Proving yet again that American people are far better than their lords and masters.
 
2012-09-06 05:16:53 PM
Well, the $1000 won't really buy much chemo for Cara. But, it'll buy a lot of hookers and blow for her parents to help them deal with this problem. 

// good going, kid.

Why doesn't someone set up a paypal account so Fark can make these two kids' day even better?
 
2012-09-06 05:22:26 PM
That was probably Fred, he's always doing stuff like that. Something about owing a debt of peace and prosperity to the rest of the world.

He's generally a good guy, but he points out that he's not my buddy every chance he gets, which I find rude and unnecessary. I blame American television for his lack of manners, but I could be wrong.

I second the paypal account. Got some actual waterworks coming down over here.

What a touching story.

What would be even more touching is if we had a health care system where 2-year-olds didn't have to rely on donations when they get leukemia. But I guess that's just a fantasy.

I'm sure the hospital shareholders will enjoy the kid's thousdand bucks, though.

Or, you could donate directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so that, one day, no one will ever have to go through what that little girl is going to go through.

Agreed, it would be fun to have the ability to help others.

$1000 what does that buy in the USA? An aspirin and a bandage?

Uh, these guys would like a word with you.

They take what insurance will pay, and you owe nothing out of pocket for the rest of your life for anything cancer related. The only thing to know is that you want to call them first, before starting a local oncology doc's cancer treatment. If you're already being treated, they wont take you.

I learned a day or two ago that it buys 1/40th of a dose of scorpion anti-venom.

Yeah, doctors are such jerks. Ihateemsomch! Where do they get off making all that money when they've done next to nothing to earn it?

I wouldn't, because I live in a country were everyone gets a tuition.

Maybe you should use your money to change your political landscape instead?

Damn Swedes...

I always thought about how awesome it would be to just do hilarious shiat with lottery winnings. I mean, I don't need things most people acquire post lottery. I just don't care. Gimme a decent pad with a fireplace and jacuzzi and I'll consider that more than luxurious. Drop a built new gen 440 into the engine bay of the Challenger and call it a day. That's it for toys/home.

First nice meal I received at a restaurant and properly good service, I'd pretend to ask the server which car s/he would buy and lay out a spread of locally available sports cars. I'd leave no tip, so of course they wouldn't forget who I was. Whichever one they picked I'd go buy and hand it over.

I'd rappel from a chopper to a bus stop and every downtrodden person I saw would get an envelope of ten grand. Then I'd just climb the rope and fly off again. Or do the same into a pub and shut that biatch down for the night with an open bar. 

I'd commission an extra work engine (I'm a conductor ya see...) and caboose to go anywhere carrying nothing but good work buddies, Louis C.K. and hand picked world-class strippers and an open bar being tended by Samuel L Jackson.

People like this reaffirm my faith in humanity. People with inordinate amounts of money should take a hint from this kid. If a kid can donate more money than he needs to someone who actually needs it then the multi-millionaires should do the same. People should be ashamed of themselves for collecting more money than they'll ever be able to spend in a lifetime while children are sick, dying, hungry. I wish I could win the lottery. I'd lead by example. This kid is already doing so. I'd give the kid a million dollars at least just for being a thoughtful kid.
