Someone has their cranky pants pulled up too tight.
What's celebrity worship? Duh, she made a nice gesture and you're trying to demonize her for it.
I can't really see, from your posts, that you'd help anyone out with anything for any reason.

Why are you being so rude? Sandra did a generous thing and we are simply commending her for it.

How much did you want her to donate?

What ever someone does, there will be a few to complain.

That's nice. When I see Kanye West do it then we are getting somewhere.

Kanye West doesn't care about Asian people.

i agree with what you are saying in the most part.. but out of the hundreds of celebs sandra is definitely one of the kindest.. as for the bulk of them they are conceited morons..

Beyonce: I Gave Gaddafi's Concert Money To Haiti Relief she says she gave the money to hati relief shouldn't that money have been returned to libya's poor where it came from.. >>> Mariah Carey got 1 million for four songs. and people look up to these people for what i will never know!!!

As if Japan needed her money. Japan is still one of the wealthiest countries, if I had a million to donate, I would give it to Haiti or some place like that.

How do you know what any of these people are like?
They're in the public eye.
Are they your friends? Acquaintances?
How do they affect you at all?

Why is it your business what anyone does with their money?
Why is this even an issue to you?

Why do you care what she does with HER money?
Who are you to criticize what anyone does?
