Question Is Marlo Thomas a billionaire?

Apparently, her father Danny Thomas was a billionaire and she inherited his estate when he died. How did he become so rich?

His former home recently sold for $65 million, after being reduced from $135 million. He also built the St. Jude's Children Hospital, which Marlo is head doctor of. Marlo also made a lot of money from her That Girl series.

My guess would be St. Judes is a scam just like 90% of every other charity in the world is.

I don't know if St. Jude's is a scam but their ads sure are annoying. But the SPCA ads are even worse, and the individual ads go on FOREVER.

I don't think it's right that St. Jude's begs for money on TV yet they don't ask the parents of patients for one thin dime. Or so they say.

Angry If I Were A Billionaire I'd buy some Pudding

She must be a billionaire to live in those huge apartments in N.Y. the way she does in between visits from Donald and Daddy.

The only thing that makes me switch the channel faster than the parade of sick kids Marlo exploits are the parade of deformed armless and legless kids that that other shameless money grubbing outfit parades in front of the camera. Oh, those animals that would be better off put to sleep also is atrocious and is quickly switched off as soon as the first beaten beast looks at the camera in close-up. Anybody got a gun, those animals need to be shot not filmed.

These shameless attempts to make us open our wallets while crying thru our tears are absolutely sickening. Do they realize how offensive they are and how accomplishing the exact opposite of what they want that they're doing? Guess not the parade of profanities never stops.

Whatever happened to ads for Jello or Comet cleanser or freeze pops? Don't people buy that anymore or do they all think we can't wait to shell out for horror sights on TV? Pass me a Pop-Tart, this is why I watch only DVDs and don't rely on TV.

WOW People actually think that St Jude's Children's hospital may be a scam and that Marlo exploits sick kids? I have never heard anyone talk that way about Marlo or St Jude's!

I imagine if you had a child with severe cancer you would feel differently?

I regularly donate money to St. Judes. I think it's a very legitimate organization that Marlo's Dad Danny kind heartedly started many years ago. I don't see Danny and now Marlo being the type if people that would exploit children and run a scam!.

I gladly donate, being a Mother I am so thankful I have two healthy Sons that never had to succumb to a horrible disease like cancer! But if I did, I 'd hate for people to think it was a scam and not donate !


Long live St. Judes !!

You have an article like this about health care advertising:

https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/hea...ncer-treatment

Relevant quote:

"Media spend" is calculated by value and doesn't necessarily represent the actual dollar amount the organization spent, according to iSpot TV. All of the organizations in this article may have received donated or discounted air time.
My suspicion is that these little networks are donating commercial time to these charities, then taking charitable deductions for the value of the time.

I agree about St.Jude being a fine charity. Although I wish all commercials were no more than one minute, I also think those by the Shriners for those kids are extremely touching. Those kids are very deserving of the attention and help and the Shriners deserve great credit for doing that. They deserve our help and that loving care.

TV Not On My Screen

I don't care if Judes is crooked or not, all I know is their ads are still sickening and craven in their pity seeking shameless club over your head methods. They may be a deserving charity, may be, but they have no business on my TV tube interrupting forever my wonderful TV shows. I want ads for Kelloggs Corn Flakes and Pudding not armless & bald kids or beaten beasts. Keep that crap off TV this junk never used to pollute the airwaves. Is it too much to ask for Ford ads?
