    You can badger people to contribute to a bullshit cat charity for years or you can quietly help people with (mostly) your own money. Stern-related because I'm tired of the Cat cancer farm crap. And I don't give a shit about football, Dunn just seems like a mensch.

    Ex-NFL RB Has Quietly Given 145 Homes To Single-Parent Families
    [​IMG]Remember Warrick Dunn? Anyone?

    If you do, you remember for some stent where he was one of the more dominant running backs in the National Football League for the better part of a decade, but then did something far more important than any single thing he did on the field during his career after it ended; with little to nobody taking notice.

    The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Atlanta Falcon started his very own charity,the Warrick Dunn Foundation, which to this date has bought 145 homes to single-parent families since 1997.

    Dunn dedicates each home to the memory of his mother, who served as a police officer who was unfortunately killed in the line of duty in 1993 – and there’s every reason in the world for her to be proud looking down at him. Dunn says he gives away these homes with his mother in mind because it was her dream to own one of her own, a dream which she was never able to realize before she passed.

    Dunn and his charity provide the new home owner with a down payment, along with a fully stocked pantry and fresh linens, televisions and computers. “They only have to bring their clothes,” said Dunn.

    Warrick was a pretty decent RB but when it's all said and done, his legacy is gonna be the many lives he's uplifted. He's one of the good guys! And unlike you know who who delivers a very adoptable kitten in a limo with cameras rolling, much of what Dunn selflessly accomplishes is done behind the scenes.

    If he isn't taking pictures looking at the house keys with each family he is helping then he isn't doing it right

    Think about the selfish balls you need to have to let $700 million sit in the bank knowing you will never be able to spend it all, and knowing 3% of it could make a huge difference in many peoples lives. I think Beth doesn't want to have her own charity because it would require work. I don't think Howard wants his own charity because he doesn't care about people. That is why it is much easier for Beth to tag along on to the 2 star rated North Shore Animal League. She gets to do minimal work for getting the title as their spokesperson/hero. I have never heard of one "animal activist" who has an exclusive alliance with just one animal shelter.

    Over the years they have had a lot of people sit in studio because they bid on it in an auction for a charity. Almost of all of them have been for North Shore Animal League. The executions were Robin's fake charity and Chevy Chase's. Other than that, I have never seen two people with so much money only focus on helping dogs and cats.

    If they were helping dogs, it wouldn't bother me as much, but Whoresy concentrates on Cats.

    So if people stalk you 24 hours a day and constantly read your Twitter and Instagram pages, then share them with all the other obsessed shut ins, you're "badgering" them? :jj:
