Ever since he helped in rescuing three kidnapped women and a child, I’m sure Charles Ramsey of Cleveland has had so many happenings in his life. Charles and his…uh…vibrant interview went viral within hours. But I think the part that stuck with everyone the most is that his heroism and kindness shined bright like a diamond. MSN News is reporting that Charles, who pointed out that he was eating a BigMac from McDonald’s when he rescued the women, has been rewarded with the ultimate burger lover’s gift: free burgers for life.
The special burger card, which is good for life, is called the ”Chuck Card” and was thought up by Scott Kuhn of the Driftwood Restaurant Group.
“We want to honor our local hero with local food,” said Kuhn, who operates four of the restaurants participating in the offer.
With the tragedy in Newtown, CT still in the hearts and minds of a lot of people, Jennifer Hudson and Will.I.Am are doing their part in spreading love to that community on this national day of love. Both Jennifer and Will tweeted links to a site called Sandy Hook Promise, calling for everyone to take part in sending them a virtual Valentine’s Day card.
They’re trying to send 1 million hearts to Sandy Hook and this Valentine’s Day seems the perfect day to take part. Want to join the cause and learn more about the Sandy Hook Promise? Click here and pitch in.
Even though I can’t say I’m too much of a fan of his movies, I do give Tyler Perry all types of credit for getting involved in anything that catches his interest, from the big Hollywood movies to the unknown stories like this one. WENN is reporting that Tyler has stepped up and offered a $100,000 reward for information regarding a decade old missing persons case in Florida.
Terrance Williams, 27, and Felipe Santos, 23, disappeared from Naples just three months apart in 2003, after separate encounters with Collier County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins. The men were never found, and on Thursday Perry spoke at a local news conference, calling on the media to give appropriate attention to the story – even though both victims are minorities.
And it seems that Steven Calkins was fired from his job from the sheriff’s office back in 2004 after he refused to cooperate with law officials during the investigation. Sounds like some shady type mess! Hopefully Tyler‘s generous reward will get some concrete information in and this case can be closed.
Hurricane Sandy has been damaging the East Coast starting Monday in an overwhelming way. MSN News is reporting that so far 17 people in seven states have been killed so far. New York has been receiving a lot of damage, as they’ve shut down their transit system and subways in advance. All over Twitter East Coast residents, including celebrities, tweeted pictures of damage. Ranging from anything to down trees to entire building fronts being ripped off, Hurricane Sandy is proving to be a force that will affect us all for years to come.
In an effort to get assistance to those in need, President Barack Obama has declared disaster areas in the hard hit state of New York. By declaring those areas disaster, this allows the government to assistance with clean up and aid. One thing that may be worth pointing out is Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has previously said that he would cut funding to FEMA, the government organization who assist when disaster areas are declared. Our prayers go out to all readers, friends and family that are in the area. Let’s hope this is over soon so we can all beginning helping each other and recovery efforts can start.
Talk about someone with a boatload of gall and audacity. Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman has plans to sue NBC for editing 911 tapes, The New York Post is reporting.
NBC launched an internal probe after producers misleadingly edited the 911 call placed by Zimmerman just before he shot the unarmed Florida teenager. The edit made it appear that Zimmerman had immediately told police that Martin was black, when the full tape reveals the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher.
I have to admit that former Spice Girl Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte is one of those celebrity couples that I love seeing. They do a lot together but aren’t overwhelming or annoying. He supports a lot of her involvements and this is evidence of that. Mel B & Stephen have posed for British Cosmopolitan for the CoppaFeel campaign, to promote breast cancer awareness according the The Daily Mail.
As you can see, the shoot is reminiscent of Janet Jackson‘s iconic cover of The Rolling Stones magazine back in 1993. But with Mel B having three daughters and a step daughter, her interest in breast cancer awareness is high on her list. She also talked about her love of boobs in the article and feeling on the other Spice Girls’ racks:
