After This Teen Pledged to Donate Her Retweets to Charity, Things Quickly Spiraled out of Control

By Abi Travis

There are countless stories out there of famous people who decided to use their platform to benefit those less fortunate. After Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico earlier this year, Pitbull flew his own personal jet to the island to transport cancer patients. Guy Fieri donated food to victims of the Sonoma fire. Britney Spears sold a (very bad) painting and donated the money to victims of the Las Vegas Massacre. Amal and George Clooney opened their own home to a Yazidi refugee. But these individuals โ€” Pitbull, Fieri, Spears, and the Clooneys โ€” have something important in common (other than being super generous). They're rich. It's great to donate to worthy causes, but it becomes slightly more difficult when the Internet takes your good intentions and makes them go viral. That's exactly what happened to Danni Messina.
