Don't respond to trolls.

Aww, that's so sweet! Why not in Toronto, the crowd gave her a fabulous reception. There orphans all around the world you know, and it is not a rule to only give to people from your own country.

Hey, Serena and Venus would do the same thing!
Except replace "orphanage" with "own wardrobe", lol.

justine lost her mother at a young age, and her father was practically non-existant

i think she knows how it's like to be an orphan and so feels very strongly for them

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

This is one of the (many) reasons I like Justine. She doesn't publicise her charity work. She's not out to get a nice-girl reputation with the media but just does it because she wants to.

She didn't want any present for her marriage, so she asked people to give money to "make a wish foundation" instead. That's the reason she was rewarded by the WTA.
