No matter if you love Honey Boo Boo or not, you have to admit that she’s taken the world by storm. I know, her family is famous for dumpster diving, spiking Mountain Dew, and a ketchup-butter-noodle slop called “Sketti”, but people are just eating Honey Boo Boo and her clan up. She’s making headlines this week for something non “redneck”! I’ll pause while you catch your breath. Alana Thompson is donating her toys to charity this holiday season!
We know that Honey Boo Boo and her family pride themselves on their money saving ways and helping others, and now Alana Thompson is taking her charity one step further. From now until Christmas, every toy she has, as well as everything she receives, will go to the family’s annual toy drive “Wilco Luvs Kids.” (We know it’s not spelled right, but what can we expect?)
Alana’s mother, June, says that last year their toy drive was able to help 108 families. This year they’re hoping to help three times that many. June is getting in on the giving as well. This year every penny she saves from now until Christmas will also go to the charity.
Alana, Chickadee, June, Chubbs and the bunch just wrapped their first season, I don’t think anyone saw them coming. They took the world by storm, and now going into their second season, Alana is reportedly asking for $10,000 per episode. June is thankfully being smart with the money by depositing it into a trust fund that’s untouchable until Alana and the girls turn 18.
If you’re in the charitable mood, you can send a donation or toy to Wilco Luvs Kids at Post Office Box 72, McIntyre, GA 31054.
We are so pleased to hear that not only is Honey Boo Boo’s family giving back, but that they’re planning for their daughters’ futures as well. Maybe this bunch is smarter than we give them credit for!
