I found something very interesting about Robin Williams recently that made me admire him even more. My partner works at Children's Hospital in San Francisco in the Pediatric ICU on the night-shift. He told me that every year--without fail-- Robin Williams comes to the Hospital at Christmas time to bring all of the children toys. Furthermore, he does this without the press having any knowledge of it.

When I found out the Robin is an Episcopalian, I smiled. I have recently become a member(I was raised Catholic) and I absolutley love my Church at St. Paul's Cathedral.

May God bless you Robin. What a wonderful gift of making others laugh you have. Your top 10 reasons are endearing and very funny.

What a great story! I know that Robin Williams also participates in the local San Diego Triathlon challenge with the Challenged Athletes foundation. It's really cool he does this without the hoopla of celebrity.
