Bob Barker, the always famous television and game show host, has always been considered a great humanitarian. Throughout his career Barker has given millions of dollars to dozens of different charities and it seems that even now that he is in retirement the giving will continue.
Barker announced this week that he would be donating $2 million dollars to a charity dedicated to helping injured soldiers and their families. The donation came during a special ceremony Barker held in order to celebrate and highlight the charity and its cause.
The donation from Barker is not surprising given his past military service. Barker said in an official announcement this week that he felt it was his and other American’s duty to do what they could to help out military families and others in need. Along with his donation he offered words of kindness and encouragement as well which he hoped would bring in donations from millions of fans and supports as well.
The Semper Fi fund has already expressed their gratitude to Mr. Barker for the large donation. At this time they have not announced any special plans regarding the funding though people close to the organization say the organization is clearly very thrilled to receive such a large donation from a high profile celebrity.
