Troops Get $4 Million

According to the press release in my email box, the UFC and Spike TV raised over $4 million dollars with their December 10th "Fight for the Troops" MMA event. It also drew roughly 2 million viewers. I think it fulfilled its purpose. Like most people, I was aware many soldiers come home injured physically and mentally, but watching the show informed me a lot more about Traumatic Brain Injury (or "TBI" as Chris O'Donnell and other celebrities call it). If you'd like to learn more about the cause or donate some cash, check out the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

In other news, Corey Hill's "His leg's crooked!!!" fund has raised $34 so far.
