The Six Million Dollar Man

Well done to Garth Brooks.

He wanted to raise money for the victims of the California fires in January 2008, by doing a run of five shows in LA, (which sold out in record time) and by donating money from his CD sales, a nice gesture for the retired Brooks.

Not only did he put on a great run of five concerts, but he also raised, a staggering $6 Million dollars for the Southern California Intervention Relief Effort (FIRE) campaign.

It's great to see an artist who has decided to do good in his retirement and not just go out on a self promotion kick. His teammates for kids charity has also raised millions and millions since it's start up 1999.

I guess there are some good guys left in the world.
