  1. Shocking that this type of discrimination is still taking place in 2009. It is so nice to read stories concerning celebrities helping others. Hurray for Mr. Perry putting a happy ending to what started out as such a terrible experience for the children. What a very generous thing for him to do. Wow! paying for transportaion, food and admission! Good caring people are still out there!

  2. Not only does this give these kids a once in a lifetime adventure. It shows them, and the rest of the world, that there are people who won’t standby and tolerate this kind of bull plop. Way to go!
