Bob Barker: $3 Million for Brain Injuries!

Bob Barker decided a high price is right when it comes to helping treat brain injuries, as he signs on to donate $3 Million to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Barker's $3 Million dollar donation will go to help the group build a new treatment center for brain injuries. Being a WW2 veretan himself, Barker is sensitive to veterans and others the Heroes Fund helps, who suffered brain injuries and other serious ailments after their service to the country. Bravo to him for helping!

Bless him! Such a substantial donation should make others in the same financial category do some soul searching. Far too much money of the rich and famous is spent on frivilous "materialistic things" as a measurement of success. Like a peacock showing its plumage. The Bob Barker's and Paul Newman's of this world show that more rewarding things can be accumulated with the fruits of success than just "material things". While I am not discounting the gifts of others such as Angelina Jolie, it is nice when some of it is spent closer to home. We have a lot of need right here in the US, not just abroad.
