Kidman & Urban Offer Cash To Homeless Aussies

NICOLE KIDMAN and her husband KEITH URBAN have donated $500,000 (£333,300) to charity the Red Cross in an effort to help their fellow Australians left homeless by raging bush fires.
More than 180 people have been killed in the inferno, which has destroyed more than 1,000 homes.
The couple appeared via satellite link during an Australian telethon to raise money for the country's Red Cross, during which the actress said, "Our hearts go out tonight to all the families that are dealing with the loss of loved ones and having to rebuild their lives again."
Kidman's Australia co-star Hugh Jackman and fellow antipodean Russell Crowe also took part in Thursday's (12Feb09) televised appeal.

I think it is DISGUSTING that all you millionaires/billionaires continue to BEG us poor people to donate to save ----------- New Orleans, Australia, and every single thing YOU choose to support.YOU people could rebuild all of it, with absolutely NO worries. Your lives will not change because of it. You don't need any of us to help ------------- all you need to do is ------- SHARE the wealth. You are overpaid anyway --------- movies, sports, tv, etc.You have the unadulterated nerve to BEG poor people to GIVE - when all you have to do is SHARE.You have enough money to make homelessness a part of the past. You could do so much to help the rest of the world.Instead, you choose to give a partial amount, which, by the way, is more than any of us can make in a year's time of work. Why not just give a REAL helping hand? Why not REALLY dig deep --- that's what you are asking poor people to do. You and yours could totally fix our nation.REMEMBER THIS --- you CANNOT take it with you. YOU WILL BE JUDGED - how dare you continue this behavior.At least, shut up when you give and quit begging poor people to help.How many of you think they will ever see the Kingdom?There are people without food, clothing, or shelter. How do you spend thousands of dollars knowing there are people starving, children without shelter, and on and on it goes. How do you sleep at night?When you die,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you die -------------- NOTHING goes with you.
