A Noble use for an un Nobel Prize

Not many people thought it was a good thing when our new president received the Nobel prize when he had yet to do anything to deserve one. It is a noble thing he does for the distribution of those funds.  Here is his list from the Washington Post.
By Scott Wilson

.....The largest share of the Nobel funds, $250,000, will go to Fisher House, which provides housing for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers.
About $200,000 will go to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which is raising money for long-term relief efforts in that country after the devastating earthquake.
Six charities working to prepare students for higher education and help them pay for it will each get $125,000: the American Indian College Fund, the Appalachian Leadership and Education Foundation, College Summit, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the Posse Foundation and the United Negro College Fund.
And two charities involved in global outreach will each receive $100,000: Africare and the Central Asia Institute.
A good and thoughtful distribution of those funds. To read the whole article go here.
