Stephen King, the author of many scary books and movies helped his native state of Maine pay the heat bill. The states federal heating assistance was but by a large amount and Stephen King helped raise money that will help pay for low-income families heating bills this winter. I have to agree with the comments below in the article that is linked below. I like that he gave back to his home state and to something here in the United States. I think celebs helping with things in other countries is okay, but I also believe that the publicity for giving here in the US isn’t as great as giving to some poor Middle Eastern, Asian, or African community. That leaves some holes here in the US as far as giving back by celebs in their own country. If I do one day become a celebrity and have the money I wouldn’t mind to donate and give back to things in this country and others. I think I would try for a balancing act.
