Usually, after a drunk night out you look at your bank account cringe wondering how on earth you spent $23.75 at McDonalds??? Well, Miley Cyrus makes some much better drunken mistakes. Instead of waking up in a strange place or regretting emotional texts from the night prior, she is plagued with the good deed of donating $500,000 to charity. The young pop star was at the AmfAR Gala when she had had a few drinks and felt it necessary to out bid Rihanna and Tom Ford for the photo of a naked woman painted by Ryan McGinley and then donate $200,000 to AIDS research.
"I’m a little drunk. That’s why I’m a half million deep,” said the singing sensation to the crowd. She spoke openly about the prevention and awareness of AIDS, in a casual manner. If you have to make drunk mistakes, these are the kinds to make!
Joonbug.com took a walk on the healthy side for New York's Stroke Day event.

Kristen Taekman from Real Housewives of New York was present to share her story and inform others about the facts. With 2 uncle's who suffered from strokes, she was happy to provide our readers and guests of the event with words of advice. "I have learned so much in the past two weeks. It's the second leading cause of death in the world, and one in six will suffer a stroke in our lifetime." She explained that, as a mom, you get information from other moms. This is why the Take 2 Tell 2 campaign is so beneficial, "by telling your story or hearing other people's story, you're going to recognize the warning signs."
