Hugh Jackman and his wife Deb have settled on the winning charities to share the $100K pot he offered over Twitter last week. People magazine’s 2008 World’s Sexiest Man received an amazing amount of suggestions after he asked the Twitter community to name a favorite charity — and why he should give them $100K — in only 140 characters. He later followed up his offer by writing, “The more passion shown for your charity the better! Get the support of your friends and teach them the importance of giving.”

Today, the 40-year-old named his two winners — and we’re proud to say that we recommended one of them: charity: water | Here’s his tweet: “Thank you for all of your passionate responses. I have chosen www.charitywater.com and www.operationofhope.com Keep your generous spirit flowing!”

Congrats to both charities — and many thanks to Hugh for giving exposure to many more; as well as the generous donation.
