Mel Gibson -- Helping Poor Guatemalan Kids

Mel Gibson has touched down in Guatemala -- where he's  doing work for a kids charity -- the same kids charity he did work for to complete his court-ordered community service.

Mel completed his 16 hours of community service several months ago with Mending Kids. The community service was part of  the plea deal he struck for allegedly striking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mending Kids International provides medical care to underprivileged children. Robyn Gibson is a former President of the Malibu chapter.  Mel and Robyn have been doing work with the charity for years.

@ Tellthetruth59...I know where I am going, to heaven. We won't meet, don't worry. You will have an eternity with whores and pimps and the likes of you to keep you busy. Though those that walk the street are those that can hope for redemption, since, as Jesus put it, they may have loved a lot. Bad for those, that did it out of sheer greed.

@ God - I thought you WERE IN HEAVEN!?!?!

Why is that? Is he a Polanski style child molester and we haven't heard? Is he on record as being an abusive father. Does he have a record as a sex offender with too many trips to Thailand stamped on his passport?

He's none of the above. He has done none of the above.

@Beaver Puppet - I've spanked my kids on their behinds when they were small when they endangered themselves or others. That's all Mel did, too. According to his own words. He doesn't beat his children. Hearsay.

Just for the record, TMZ did state earlier that MG was in Guatemala to do his community service. They have since updated the story.

Here is what I found (link included as proof) that supports the fact that TMZ did post incorrect info:

www.torontosun.com/2011/06/08/gibson-starts-community-service


Embattled actor Mel Gibson has jetted to Guatemala to complete his required community service hours.

In March, the actor struck a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors in a bid to stay out of jail after he was accused of attacking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva during a heated argument last year.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gibson was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to undergo 52 weeks of counselling, pay almost $60...0 in fines and serve 16 hours of community service.

Gibson, who landed in the Central American country on Wednesday, plans on finishing his volunteer duties by Thursday, according to TMZ.com.

The Braveheart star will work with a local chapter of Mending Kids International - the organization which, until recently, boasted his ex-wife Robyn as President of the Board of Directors.

@Beaver Puppet - and Robyn Gibson claims Mel was a loving father. If she's lying she is a perjurer. Do you think Robyn Gibson perjured herself for financial gain?

@ Beaver...every day of your life, and that I swear to God almighty, you will not get a break, Because I am after you. And I will see to it. And no instance in the world can hinder me. Your little toe is mine. Schnipp Schnapp. :-)

Getting back on track---IMO, TMZ ran this story because there is a court date on June 23?. Obviously, from a poster in an earlier post today, Ox has not been able to get rid od Mel's attorney. All the trollsn here today, something is in the works.

WTF 17 minutes ago There is plenty of poor children right here.....these A&&hole stars kill me helping other countries when they have enough children here that can use your help. Iam talking about adobtions to all ways going to these frickin third world places to help children that when the get old enough will slice there throats at a bat of an eye.
-------

Mel is adopting Guatamalan children? I think you missed the Jolie-Pitt thread about three days ago. You remind me of the haters that gave Sandra Bullock crap for adopting a black child and screaming about all the white children that need adopting.

BTW, way to stereotype children of different ethnicity, so when they all get older they'll slit your throat? You really have some issues to deal with.
