After admitting that assistants updated his Twitter blog, Australian actor Hugh Jackman now wants to appease his online followers by offering USD 100,000 to a fan's favourite charity.
And now the 'X-Men' star has asked the fans on the micro-blogging site to tell him about their favourite charities - so he can donate USD 100,000 to the most worthwhile organisation. The move comes after the actor faced flak for calling Sydney's iconic 'Opera House' 'Opera Centre' on his Twitter blog and later admitting that the mistake was made by one of his assistants, who updated the blog on his behalf.
Jackman has invited fellow 'tweeters' to recommend causes and has vowed to give the generous sum to the selected charity on behalf of the person who can deliver the most convincing and impassioned plea - within the short textual limit the website allows.
"I will donate 100K to one individual's favourite non profit organisation. Of course, you must convince me why by using 140 characters or less. The more passion shown for your charity the better! Get the support of your friends and teach them the importance of giving," Jackman wrote on his official Twitter page.
