Paula Deens donationPaula Deen is trying pretty hard to recover from the backlash she received after revealing she has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes for three years, but continued to endorse diabetes-causing food.

It is pretty obvious that the only reason she revealed her illness is to make more money considering she waited to strike an endorsement deal with a diabetes drugmaker Novo Nordisk before coming out.

Now she's trying to do some good and has announced that she plans on donating "a certain percentage" of what the company is paying her to the American Diabetes Association.

bret michaels starts new charity for diabetes

Bret Michaels has decided it’s time for him to take a stance on the condition that’s plagued him for almost his entire life — Diabetes.

Michaels has suffered from type-1 diabetes since he was six, and has recently raised more than $300,000 on his TV show for the American Diabetes Association. He has also signed on to be the face of the organization in November.

Said Michaels:

"It is an honor to once again be working with the American Diabetes Association. As someone with type 1 diabetes, I know how difficult it can be to live with this disease and how important it is to raise awareness so that we can eventually put a stop to diabetes. I hope everyone will join me in the movement to Stop Diabetes this November."

Bret, you’re a crazy person most of the time, but we love the charity work you’re doing!
