Dolls Up Little Girls

... For Charity

Mel Gibson
knows what women want ... or at least 10-year-old girls ... because he recently went on a play date with two young ladies as part of the charity he works for -- and bought them expensive custom dolls!!!

The charity's called Mending Kids International -- an organization that performs life-saving surgeries for children around the world ... in this case, a 10- and an 11-year-old girl from Honduras who required serious reconstructive face surgeries.

The surgeries were a success -- and Mel celebrated with the girls by taking them out for a stroll around The Grove in L.A., eating lunch, ice cream, window shopping ... and finally, taking them on a trip to the American Girl doll store, where Mel helped them assemble their own look-alike dolls.

FYI -- the store ain't cheap.

Mel -- who's also participating in the Mending Kids celeb poker tournament this weekend in West Hollywood at the London -- tells us, "It was really fun spending time with Karol and Sara ... They have been through so much and are just so inspirational to everyone who meets them."

Mel adds, "At home, these girls couldn't leave their homes for fear of being tormented. Now, they are walking through one of the most popular tourist areas of Los Angeles."

Mel is still a great director. So he has some anger issues.

I guess the Team Mel group of vicious posters has finally died out! Still don't forgive TMZ for providing a forum for hate, just to get clicks for their website. But Harvey has no morals, just like Team Mel, a lot of pathology was allowed to exercise it's evil on here! Hear me Tel?

Regardless of how much "good" he does, Mel Gibson is still an anti-semitic piece of excrement.

It's very cool of him to do, and the organization should be applauded.. but those dolls.. the 'make like me' American Girls are only about $125 .. maybe some of the limited or special themed dolls are more but the ones where you go in and pick your hair length, color, and eye color are not all that pricey.... especially for most celebs.

He is a good guy. Big temper who is brutally honest, but he is a nice person. Someone I know met him and he was very down to earth. He really is Mad Max. That's why he played the role so well.

Halle Berry has twice hit people with her SUV and left the scene of the accident. Alec Baldwin punched, well a lot of people and called his daughter a pig. Charlie Sheen beat girlfriend Brittany Ashland and shot Kelly Preston. James Brown has a list of hitting women. Josh Brolin hit his wife. Nick Cage... many more. Mel was wrong, but not sure if the baby mama told all truths!! Mel needs to do a biopic on Nebraksa Football player Brooke Berringer.

Mel has a history of doing good deeds for kids and cops. He has flown several children here, without fanfare, for reconstructive surgery, even twins that have been joined together at birth on his own expense. No fanfare just did it. I know some cops who have personally experienced his charity for the group of officers who have been injured in the line of duty. He has done many things like this quietly, he just happened to get his picture taken at this.

While I know he has said and done some things that are offensive to many, he has also done many more things that are good, charitable and noteworthy. Anyone without sin, cast the first stone.

Go ahead.
