Jon, Take a Cue From Kate — This Is How You Should Donate To Charity!

While I’m thrilled to see Jon and Kate both showing off their philanthropic sides, Kate’s donation of eight car seats seemed to be a little more worthy than Jon’s donation of his autograph. What do you think?

Jon and Kate Gosselin were spotted separately giving back to their local communities April 30, but I think Jon could learn a lot about charity from his ex-wife.

Kate gathered eight  used car seats and gave them to a local non-profit organization.  So charitable!

Meanwhile,  Jon decided to make his own personal donation and, like, usual, made it all about himself!  While visiting his brother today in Frederick, Md., the octodad decided to randomly gather a group of reporters to ‘break the news’ that he planned on auctioning off his signature at $10 a pop (!!!!)  to benefit his brother’s baseball team. Um….Jon? Reality check, please.  The piece of paper would have been more useful without your name on it. Then someone could have used it!!

Jon, you really need to take a step back and learn a thing or two from your ex-wife.  Not only is Kate raising your eight little Gosselings,  but she’s out promoting a book AND filming two reality shows! It’s clear that you’re sitting around trying to come up with any way to get in front of the camera — and failing miserably!

It IS a little odd, come to think of it, that both Jon and Kate decided to be so ‘giving’ on the same day. Did Jon find out Kate donated car seats so he decided to steal her philanthropic thunder?

More people showed up for Jon’s signature than to buy Kate’s “book”!!!

Kate (illegally) donated the car-seats cause she couldn’t sell them.

Anyone who writes for Hollywood Life wouldn’t have a clue what “journalist writing” is, much less how to learn or go about writing a thoughtful piece.

The joke is on you Hollywood Life and Bonnie Fuller. You’ve taken the position of supporting Kate Gosselin despite the truth being just a click away. What is it you’re proud of and trying to support – that Kate ‘donated’ USED car seats that were most probably GIVEN to them in the first place (just like the gently used clothing the children wore that was FREE to the family) or that you feel somehow superior trying to judge whether Jon’s charity was legitimate (wrong sport, wrong charity, wrong everything HL)?

Had you instead, written an article pointing out the FACTS of BOTH Kate and Jon’s PATHETIC attempts at self promotion to assuage their own poor reputations for being takers and never givers, you might have received at least a pat on the back, but no…..you chose to make yourselves look even more ridiculous with your attempt to back Kate by doing no research and no verification.

The joke is on you.

Wow, all of a sudden Kate and Jon decide to ‘give back”. Afterall they have begged and recieved for years now. So it only right. HOWEVER, KATE is being FILMED for her new shows. Good God, stop letting TLC and this idiot twosome pull the wool over your eyes.

Big Deal … The carseats were probably donated to the Greedlins in the first place. AND who would pay for a Jon Greedlin autograph?

LOL failed attempt and slander hollywoodlife.

Donating “trash” makes you a better person? C’mon try harder next time. Kate donating “used” car seats. Wow! This makes up for her bad parenting skills and the abuse her kids and husband went through under her control for years.

Kate is a good person and her donating the seats was a good thing. She’s a good mother and you bash her everyday on gossip sites, what does that make you?

Used carseats can’t be donated; there’s no way to prove they weren’t in a crash or something else happened to them. All carseat manufacturers suggest that you cut the straps with scissors before throwing away, because they can’t be reused.

And I’m lost as to how Kate is raising the Gosselings…notice how she’s only ‘being a mom’ (aka spending time with her kids without the nanny present) when the TLC cameras came back into the picture. Otherwise, they’ve been left with the nanny. SHE’S the one who has been raising those kids, not either one of their parents.

Kate’s donation was basically garbage. Used carseats can’t be given out by charities.

YES donating used car seats is illegal, the car seats have no guarranty to have not been in an accident the departmant of transportation is very clear on the matter in most states. Once Upon a Child, a franchise on gently used clothes is very strict on the matter…. no used car seats is to be solg or given away. Most people never keep the instructions on how to properly install and use a car seat and not only that but there’s no way to know if a car seat has been recalleed without the model number.

Used car seats????

Posted at 10:16 PM on May 1, 2010  

I don’t know of any charities that will give out used carseats. We’ve tried to donate them in the past and couldn’t find anyone who would take them. They all said this was not allowed by law and they would have to throw them away. So, yeah, way to go Kate. What a great donation.

Big deal that Kate donated carseats. She had better be donating them because they were given to her in the first place by one or more of the people she scammed to begin with.

Kate’s donation shocks me. If anyone remembers, Kate refused all USED items her community donated when she gave birth to her 6 children. Only the BEST for Kate!

You really should research your story better. This was a long planned event for a Mt St Mary’s college sports team his brother is connected to, but at the last minute the school decided, being catholic, they could not be associated with a divorced man.So instead Jon and brothers decided to give to their dentist father’s child dentistry charity. Check the facts!

Excuse me but why is this “Hollyweird” saga worth printing as a news story. Wake Up Call: This Constitutional Republic has a Kenyan usurper residing in the People’s White House and operating his OBAMANATION UPON THE NATION, INC. out of our Republic’s Oval Office. His intent is to destroy both the Republic and the Constitution upon which it is founded and grounded.

Remember Katrina? Well, two days afterwards all the dimlibs (dim-witted liberals) and Hollyweirds were screaming about President Bush (Natural-Born U.S. Citizen) and FEMA not doing their jobs and people suffering (they had five days prior to Katrina’s coming on land to use the unused buses that filled with water instead of evacuating people from the “Chocolate City” of N.O…brilliant chocolate mayor’s royal screw-up”. Now a massive oil slick is on its way threatening the very existence of the area’s wildlife and industries and the “chocolate” Resident of the White House has waited eight days before doing a damned thing about the real crisis…what’s up with the dimlibs and Hollyweirds not raising all kinds of hell about that?…me thinks its a proof positive of the BO stench of liberalism being a hardcore racist and socialistic commie…uncaring, unknowing, unable!!! What a mess rich dimlibs and Hollyweirds have foisted upon the Republic and somehow we aren’t suppose to notice or give a damn but instead should focus on this crapola you’ve presented as “news”?

Please get a life!
