Hugh Jackman is one of our favorite actors. Well he tweets. Did you know that? I didn’t. I’m now following him after hearing about his recent tweet:
RealHughJackman: “I will donate 100K to one individual’s favorite non profit organization.Of course,you must convince me why by using 140 characters or less.”
He has broadcasted to the twitter world his philanthropy, this 100K will be in Australian currency. There are many deserving charities who could really use these funds. Especially with the horrible economy. There are no other terms on this, so perhaps it could be a charity anywhere across the globe.
It was announced that Hugh will be declaring the winner on Ryan Seacrests radio show on Friday April 24th. So hurry and get your tweets in!
Kudos to you Hugh Jackman for stepping up with this great way to get knowledge of needy charities on Twitter, and for offering your financial help. I just hope this isn’t some marketing ploy, or trying to make up for a recent slip of the tweet where he incorrectly termed a famous Australian landmark. I hope that it is really Hugh saying to himself “I want to help!”
What charities do you think deserve it? @RealHughJackman if you have a great one. Some I love are I Heart Tucker and March of Babies. Though there are many other deserving charities out there that 100K could be a huge help.
