Chelsea Clinton and NBC: Impact!

Chelsea Clinton has made it clear that she doesn’t want to become the next Barbara Walters. She doesn’t want to celebrify herself. She just wants to use her perch as an NBC reporter to do good.

So far, results! According to a volunteer at TOPPS Inc, the Pine Bluff, Ark., afterschool charity that Clinton profiled last night on NBC, it’s been a great day. “We are thrilled and absolutely overwhelmed with joy,” said the volunteer, who declined to provide her name. “We’re overwhelmed with donations,” she continued, noting that a local bank has set up an account to handle the flood.

No numbers just yet — the volunteer said that more details would be available later today. More to come.
