Chelsea Handler marriage equality donations

More people than ever before are supporting same-sex marriage in this country and Chelsea Handler wants to continue progress for equality.

Since Barack Obama decided to endorse marriage equality, the Chelsea Lately host has promised to match every donation made to the Human Rights Campaign's "Fight for marriage" in the next 24 hours, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000.

That means if you donate $50 to the cause RIGHT NOW, Chelsea will match it and make your total $100!

Such a kind gesture, but it won't last long, so hurry up and donate if U want to see more change!

    She's paying for a gay demographic to watch her shows

    Why only up to $50,000.00? Why? She has more money to give to the cause.

    She recently signed a 12 million $$$$$ contract with E
    so $50,000 is just a bar tab for her

    who cares how much she earns, the fact of the matter is donating to the cause. can everyone stop being greedy?

    I wouldn't give this piece of trash $.01. Especially when it would go to a absolutely worthless cause! Face it Perez, it's not going to happen anytime soon. We have digressed this far, this shouldn't have ever been an issue. Let the gay people (who choose to live that lifestyle) be foreced to suffer with their lifestyle choices. Don't think you have "special rights" when you choose to go against what's normal. And no you weren't born this way, you chose to live this way!

    You people are grumpy if all you can do is complain about the "small" match. I say way to go Chelsea. I donated $25.

    "Gay Equality Marriage Charity"? What? Since when was marriage a charity?

    When the US has had 39 consecutive months of 8% unemployment under Obama, this $50-100K won't mean much. The economy is the real issue and Romney has him beat, by a long shot in that department. Celebs are rich so they don't care… real, working Americans want work and that's why they'll vote for Romney. A vote for same sex marriage means 4 more years of Obama, means 4 more years of no jobs.

    Let's not make this about presidential candidates y'all. Chelsea has always been an avid supporter of Gay rights. I don't care how much money she is matching: she is matching money. That is more than most celebs who "support the cause." I donated $50 and it's wonderful that that $50 is doubled now to help fight this civil injustice. Your personal opinion on gay marriage is irrelevant. The government has no business telling people who they can and can't marry.

    Re: dryan1971 – I feel sorry for you. You're probably a repressed homosexual or something. It is so ignorant to say it is a choice! Of course - everything you do in your life is a choice - but that doesn't mean that you should not 'choose' to be with someone you love. What choice do you recommend for homosexuals then?! To marry or date someone of the opposite sex - whom they aren't attracted to? Is that what you would recommend to your own kids? Cause if so, they are going to be miserable. Imagine being with someone you are not attracted to… It's insane. If you made the choice yourself to marry someone who you aren't attracted to just to please your Church or family - then I feel bad for you. (I'm serious too)

    She doesn't have to give anything. Most "stars" or gay "icons" we throw money at don't do anything. Music, movies, concerts.

    Chelsea Handler is a liar. She lies about everything — how she got her talk show, her sex tape, etc. She's not going to keep her word. Why should I trust someone who brags about not liking Eastern Europeans and minorities?
