Agree 100%...they are the real heros. If the others you mentioned, such as Dolly, have done humanitarian work then they deserve some kudos too.

Some wouldn't do it without the tax write off. But at least they are still doing it. There are so many people that wouldn't give a crap anymore and just let people do without or worse. I applaud them for at least caring, tax write off or not.

You need to thank their CPA's.They are the ones that find a charity for the write offs.Those Marine gave something more valuable than what your precious Manning.Parton,and alot of other sports stars,movie stars,and singers ever gave.Com pared to the Armed Forces Members Manning is a big turd in the bucket along with other stars as well.

While we may disagree about many things, including that Manning is a "big turd", I will agree that any and all member of the military that risk their lives for us are true heros. I never said that Manning or Parton or any of those others are "heros. But if they give from their hearts then wonderful. And they are the only people that know WHY they give. Not you, me or anyone else knows. We can speculate, but we do not truly know why, or them for that matter.
