Chuck Norris has joined in on the public debate over whether or not the Boy Scouts of America should allow openly gay scoutmasters.

Kate Middleton has been looking for the perfect charity since becoming the Royal Duchess of Cambridge last year and, by golly, she was able to find five!

Check out the five charities Kate will devote her time and energy to below:
