Colbert's Bracelets Beget Real Bling for Charity

On Wednesday night's The Colbert Report, frontman Stephen Colbert presented a $171,525 check to the Yellow Ribbon Fund, a charity that aids injured service members and their families. The source of the benevolent windfall: sales of the "WristStrong" bracelets Colbert has been peddling, largely in jest, as part of a "wrist awareness" campaign he launched after fracturing his left wrist last June. Hey, even Lance Armstrong can't have a beef with that.
