Real Winning Isn’t About Torpedoes It’s About Giving

Disclaimer: This post has NOTHING what-so-ever do with libraries.

I can’t express how disgusted I am with the whole Charlie Sheen thing and that instead of helping that man people are encouraging him. I’m even more disgusted that people are willing to pay up to $350 to see him.

Recently several of my friends retweeted this tweet by Wil Wheaton and I thought YES! This!  “I wish everyone going to the Charlie Sheen Pay Attention To Me Tour would skip it and donate the ticket price to a battered women’s shelter.” I wish this SO much.

Andy Woodworth has taken it one step further and set up a wiki encouraging people to donate to one of these charities.

Now, I’m sure none of my readers have paid, or are considering paying to go see CS, 🙂 but please consider donating to one of these, your local library or other charitable organizations.

The BBB has some great tips and suggestions for giving wisely.

PS if you do donate I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment with the org and why you chose it.

  1. This is how it starts. Next, you’ll tell me to stop buying graphic novels and video games, then to stop eating junk food, then….
    Sorry, I like my freedom to much to accept your moralistic suggestion of how I should spend my or live my life. 😉
