snipshot_b21dssxgikjn.jpgAt the MTV Video Music Awards last year, Jessica Simpson won a car. Now before you go wondering why any celebrity should ever be allowed to win a contest, you should know that this lucky draw was only for the rich and famous. Life is truly unfair sometimes. Simpson pulled a the winning key from a pouch and won herself a Chrysler Crossfire. The first thing on her mind, however, (besides when the IRS would smack her silly), was ‘I really don’t need a car.’ Hence, she vowed to give it away to charity.

Now, several months later, she’s living up to her word. According to StarPulse, Simpson asked Chrysler if she could exchange the car for a more practical minivan. The car company agreed and Jessica promptly called up the Casa Hogar Elim orphanage in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. From the article,

“Last week, someone asked Mama Lupita (who runs the orphanage) if she could use a van. Mama Lupita said, ‘Of course we could use it!’ So then she was told that she was getting a brand new seven-passenger van from Jessica Simpson. She started to cry for three minutes straight and then said, ‘I can’t wait to give Jessica a big hug!'”

Not only that, but Jessica is also auctioning off the striking red dress she wore during that God-awful Pizza Hut commercial for the Super Bowl. She’ll be throwing it up on Ebay and all proceeds will go towards the Casa Hogar orphanage. “The orphanage means so much to her. She wants to help Mama Lupita and everyone in the orphanage.” Cardinal rule number one: Always be good to Mama. Nice work, Jessica. You saved on your taxes and helped out some kids in the process. Win/Win.
