Whitehouse spokesman says president Obama will donate the prize Money to charity.
A White House spokesman says Obama will donate the entire $1.4 million from his Nobel Peace Prize to charity.
President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.
The committee said Mr. Obama's efforts to promote a "global response to global challenges" cemented their decision.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will donate the $1.4 million cash award that comes with the Nobel Peace Prize to charity.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says it's likely that more than one charity will share the windfall.
Gibbs says the president has yet to decide which charities will benefit from the award, announced early Friday morning.
Thank you Mr President.
The Media was bitching about what he would do with the cash, since in their eyes he didn't deserve it. This is a humble way to spend the cash IMO.
But i am guessing the MSM will find a way to make this another controversy when the list of charities are revealed.
