Larry the Cable GuyThe holiday spirit has found its way to “Larry the Cable Guy’s” heart. Larry the Cable Guy, whose real name is Dan Whitney, has made quite the charitable donation to Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska. He has pledged $1.2 million dollars to construct a 14-bed children’s unit at the hospital that will be devoted to helping children overcome injury and illness.

Larry the Cable Guy, a native of Pawnee City, Neb., has made the pledge through his Git-R-Done Foundation which seeks to “provide assistance to individuals, families and organizations that have experienced hardships beyond their control.” In the past, the Git-R-Done Foundation has made contributions to both the National Guard and the FFA: the Future Farmers of America.

    That is fantastic. If only all celebrities could remember to do these kind of things.

    That’s really heartwarming, but another way he could “provide assistance to individuals, families and organizations that have experienced hardships beyond their control” would be to ask Comedy Central to stop showing Blue Collar Comedy Tour and their individual CC specials 15 times a month.
