Mel Gibson to start ordered community service soon
Washington: Actor Mel Gibson will begin his court ordered community service at a kid`s charity in L.A. soon.
And the ‘Braveheart’ star is already getting support from some of the parents, reports a website.
In fact, one set of parents associated with Mending Kids International said they are more than happy to help give the actor a ‘brand new start’ because Gibson has helped fund a life-changing series of operations for their foster son over the past couple of years.
James Nicol said his Ethiopian-born son Berhanu was only able to undergo an expensive series of medical procedures to help fix severe spinal issues because of the actor’s generosity.
Nicol said his family is still active with the organization and they are excited for any assistance Gibson can provide despite the fact his community service is the result of a plea deal in a domestic violence case.
"If Mel was coming over to our house to play ball with my son, I would not be the least bit concerned," said Nicol, adding he completely trusts the actor around his child.
