Anyone who thinks Mel is not sincere in his love for children hasn't been paying attention! He adores them and helps them all around the world AND at home, 99% of the time escaping cameras. Good on ya Mel.

I was so disgusted with Mel when I heard about all his shana****ns the past few years, but with that being said, I have to give him credit for taking time out to do some good for children. Whether it's a photo op or not, he's still there and those kids are still getting some extra attention. You can't hate on anyone who is taking the time out of their lives to help sick kids. He finished his court mandated community service months ago, yet is still contributing. Good job?

ITS A SAD SHAME WHEN PEOPLE WITH SO MUCH MONEY WOULD RATHER HELP OTHER COUNTRIES KIDS BEFORE OUR OWN...DISPICIBLE AND SHAMEFUL ON ALL THERE PARTS..SPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHILD FROM THE HUDSON RIVER DROWNING SITUATION THAT IS GETTING TONS OF HELP FROM NO OTHER THAN TRUE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES

HERES A REAL STAR HELPING OUR OWN COUNTRIES CHILDREN!

@St Murphy How the hell would you know? He helps kids in the US regularly. Maybe he simply didn't tell YOU about it.

@Ira Good point. St Murphy is a racist. Why aren't YOU off helping kids instead of spending your time trashing others for helping children of another race? Mel doesn't have to help kids anywhere but here he is doing it voluntarily, service hours done long ago, but it's still not good enough for the armchair judges.

This is directed to St Murphy, not Ira -- > "Why aren't YOU off helping kids instead of spending your time trashing others for helping children of another race?
