Hugh Jackman announced this morning that he is donating $100,000 to charity! He went on Ryan Seacrest this morning to reveal the news.
Jackman had been having a contest on his Twitter profile, in which fans had to convince Hugh in 140 characters or less why your favorite charity deserves a donation!
Hugh said he would then donate the chunk of change to a particular individual’s charity of choice. But he was stuck between two different charities, so decided to give to both Charity: Water and Operation of Hope.
Charity: Water is a non-profit initiative based in New York City focused on bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Operation of Hope is a nonprofit medical foundation started in 1989 to perform facial surgeries on poor children around the world. It’s comprised of an all-volunteer medical team that donates surgeries to children in developing countries born with facial deformities.
Yet again, celebrities are using Twitter for a good cause!
