Post written by guest contributor Nicole Guappone.

Dixie ChicksBack in July, there was a post on the Dixie Chicks blog about how Dixie Chick Emily Robison is a sucker for charity donations. Emily recently donated to Helping Hands, an organization that trains and provides monkeys to aid quadriplegic persons with severe spinal chord injuries or other mobility impairments that need the assistance. Says the post:

It wasn’t until later that she started to question whether it was a real charity. When she tells us this, every head in the room turns and people take turns making fun of her. A monkey?!? Everyone assumes Emily has been swindled into helping a phony organization. But when Natalie looks up the organization online, it looks legit and sounds like a great non-profit! Suddenly, everyone is excited about this charity. Natalie approves: Good job, Emmy! Emily pats herself on the back and says, “I’m going to Heaven.”

Just yesterday, there was another post about Helping Hands. It is based in Boston, MA, and when the Chicks stopped at the Fleet Center on their Accidents and Accusations tour, they contacted the organization. Then Chi-Chi, the monkey, visited them.After an hour of schmoozing, Mindi, the Chicks’ tour manager, said they less than 30 minutes to get dressed and be on stage. Natalie had a hard time pulling herself away from the adorable monkey.
