Kelly Clarkson has returned to her hometown (it sounds so quaint when you refer to Dallas that way) for the first time in over a year to headline a benefit for TD Ameritrade found Joe Ricketts's Opportunity Education Foundation. The foundation focuses on helping children in Africa and Asia get an education. From a press release:
"My mother is a teacher and I come from a long line of teachers and we're all about education, so I was really, really excited to be a part of this. You know, we in America, we are the Land of Opportunity. And one of the reasons we enjoy so much opportunity is the education that is bestowed upon us and granted to us. "
I'm not sure Ron Paul would agree with any sentences that contain the words "bestowed upon" or "granted to," but the girl eventually supported Obama so we'll let that slide. Sounds like a great charity.
