You mean some movie stars give money away?

Tbdpierce060107 We love starting the day with good news, so let us tell you about how Pierce Brosnan and wife Keely donated $100,000 to help replace an unsafe playground.

The AP reports the couple gave the six digits to an elementary school on Kauai, where they own a home, through Hawaii 3R’s (Repair, Remodel and Restore Hawaii’s public schools), a nonprofit organization that kicked in $47,800 for the project.

“We were disheartened that the playground equipment was condemned for so long, and we wanted to find a way to help,” the ex-James Bond said. The kids at Hanalei Elementary have got to be glad they did.
