Whether or not you’re a fan of the breakout reality hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, you can’t deny that its young star has a heart of gold.
Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson will be giving generously to needy families in her rural Georgia county this Christmas by donating both her personal savings and the toys bestowed on her by viewers of her TLC show.
Her official Facebook page – created by her mother, “Mama June” Shannon, and a friend – announces:
Alana has just decided since she has so much already that from now until Christmas she is going to donate all toys sent to her, to our annual toy drive for ‘Wilco Luvs Kids’ to help our local community. She’s also decided to take all her money that she has saved & any money that she gets from now until Christmas and use it to buy even more toys for under privileged kids!
They go on to say that they helped 108 families through the charity last year, and would love to help twice or three times as many this year.
Alana and her family appreciate the love they’ve gotten from their followers and hope no one takes offense at having their well-meaning gifts repurposed. However, the little beauty queen “has enough stuff now & knows there are many kids & families who have little or nothing and wants to help those families as much as possible!”
Mama June and Honey Boo Boo are enjoying a bit of the Beverly Hillbillies life this week; they’re in Hollywood doing a round of interviews (they’ll be on Jimmy Kimmel’s show tomorrow). The photo here is from the Lucky Strike Lanes, where Alana got to autograph a bowling pin today.
If you’d like to help the Thompson/Shannon clan reach their goal, you can send donations to P.O. Box 72, McIntyre, GA, 31054.
In other words, your dollars will make them holler!
