Celebrity Apprentice Generates Awareness and Funds for God's Love We Deliver

As we told you previously, the celebrities participating in this season's Celebrity Apprentice did so behalf of a variety of charities including the highly rated StandUp for Kids and International Rett Syndrome Foundation. The final episode came down a battle to see who could pull off the better charity fundraiser - Joan Rivers on behalf of 2-star God's Love We Deliver (GLWD) or Annie Duke on behalf of 4-stars Refugees International. Despite the fact that Duke raised far more ($465,725) than Rivers ($150,830), Donald hired Rivers as his celebrity apprentice. Along with the title, Joan Rivers won $250,000 for GLWD.
