The Many Shades of Rosie

Rosie O'Donnell has never really been the type to shy away from the spot light. Always funny, sometimes frank, the popular star quietly works unbelievable wonders helping low-income children to flourish and grow.

Her very impressive resumé includes stand-up comic, television, film star, theater, and best selling author. She has been in the spotlight for being a strong woman known to speak out and stand up for her beliefs...most notably, issues regarding gay rights and the war in Iraq. However, there is a softer side to Rosie O'Donnell...the one that's dedicated to helping children in need. Rosie's For All Kids foundation has given more than $26 million in grants to various child related programs. Her foundation has overseen the building of 27 Cutie Patootie® daycare centers for low income areas througout the United States. It has also spent $3million aiding Gulf Coast families after Hurricane Katrina and funded Rosie's Broadway Kids...a non profit program that brings music and theater to New York public schools. Without her program, these kids would have no exposure to the arts.
She is to be commended for all she so selflessly gives.
