Credit where credit is due

When I wrote about the royal wedding, I made fun of Princess Beatrice’s hat. To be fair, everyone else did, too. And I stand by my assessment. It’s not a flattering hat.

But Princess Beatrice has turned all the scorn to a good cause. And good  for her.  She’s auctioning the hat off via ebay.  Right now, six days before the auction ends, the bid is £11,000.00.  For American readers, that’s $17,788.35 at today’s exchange rate.  Not chump change.

The monies collected will be split between UNICEF UK and Children in Crisis.

People made fun of her, but she turned it around. I’m no fan, but credit where credit is due. This isn’t my usual topic for this blog, but I support charity when I can. And people who can turn negatives to positives should be saluted. Fair play to you, Beatrice.
