Why don't EVERY US athlete and celeb donate 1 million to help?

Our POTUS are asking America to donate. What don't they ask EVERY US athlete and celeb to donate 1 million each, now THAT would do some serious good!

  • Because it's better for their checkbooks to smile pretty during a telethon, publicize their new project and keep their money in the bank.

  • They dont have to, you can ask til you are blue in the face and they still dont have too.
    IMO that would be like telling everyone in the country thy HAVE to donate.

  • Most of them are broke. They get all this money and then blow it on cars, jewelry, big houses and paying the way for the free loaders that follow them around.

  • Many celebrities are donating, athletes and actors and muscians.

    Many also, are busy supporting 15-50 people as they come from very poor families when they make it, they are expected to fund the lifestyles of friends and families

  • Mrs Owen, I agree we both know they don't have to. BUT they should WANT do. Average citizens have made these celebs what they are today, they need to give back to who put them where they are!

  • Im in agreement. The celebs are doing all this asking of us(as are politicians)but more of them need to donate, especially since they have the capability of sending large quantities and many of us regular folks are struggling just to keep our own household stable.

  • Angelina and Brad donated a million, Sandra Bullock has donated a million, Steinbrenner (Yankee's owner) donated $500,000, I can't remember anyone at the time.
