David Lynch - David Lynch Creates $1 Million Meditation Fund For Soldiers

Director David Lynch has created a $1 million (£625,000) fund for U.S. soldiers to undergo meditation courses to help them deal with the traumas of war.
The moviemaker revealed the donation at a gala in Los Angeles for his The David Lynch Foundation on Saturday (03Dec11).
Lynch, a longtime advocate of Transcendental Meditation, is hoping veterans who learn the technique can reduce the stress they suffer after returning from the battlefield.
The Operation Warrior Wellness grants will also cover sessions for soldiers' family members suffering from post-traumatic stress.
Guests at the L.A. gala included Katy Perry and Russell Brand, who hit the red carpet together for the first time since their marriage was rocked by split rumours last week (begs28Nov11). The couple was all smiles at they posed for photographers.
