A well-deserved honor!

We've just learned that Usher is getting honored by the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis on November 12th.

He'll be presented with the museum's Philanthropy Freedom Award, for the work that's been done by his New Look Foundation, which has "raised financial resources for Hurricane Katrina victims and issued a 'call to action' for Haiti relief in 2010."

Other Freedom Award winners who will be honored alongside Usher include Dr. Bill Frist, actress Cicely Tyson, and former NBA player Bill Russell.

Congratulations, Usher! And thanks for being a positive influence on the world!

William Shatner Saves A Family From Homelessness…With His Kidney Stone?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFitnessCharity

William Shatner kidney stone

William Shatner is one painfully kind man.

The Sh*t My Dad Says actor has saved a family from homelessness by selling his kidney stone (ouch)!

The veteran Hollywood star managed to convince bosses at gambling website GoldenPalace.com to pay $21,000 for the stone in 2005.

With the help of his Boston Legal castmates, he took the profits and made a total donation of $84,000 to housing charity Habitat for Humanity in the U.S.

The charity used the donated money to build a house for a family who lost their home in Hurricane Katrina.

Shatner is proud of his creative charitable efforts too, revealing:

"I have a picture of a lovely family with three kids, living in a home that my kidney stone built."

What an awesome idea, Mr. Shatner! We applaud you're charity work!

Cat Returns, Missing Since Hurricane Katrina

Filed under: Cat



Although he has been missing for five years, 7-year-old cat Scrub was returned to his owner, Jennifer Noble.

The gray and white cat was found by the Humane Society of South Mississippi and was placed with his family due to an implanted microchip. He was brought into a shelter by a Gulfport man who was feeding the stray cat and was worried he wouldn't survive a cold spell.

By Scrub's first night back, he was already snuggling in bed with one of her boys.

So sweet.
