Country music celebrity John Rich claims that Rush Limbaugh donated $100,000 to St. Jude Children’s Hospital anonymously, according to The Daily Wire.
Limbaugh was well known for his generosity, and would often give thousands of dollars in gratuity at restaurants.
“When I was on Celebrity Apprentice, Rush Limbaugh made a donation of $100,000 dollars to St. Jude Children’s Hospital to support them, and my mission on the TV Show under the condition that he remained anonymous. I never said a word until now. He will be missed. #RIPRushLimbaugh,” Rich said.

“Hello everyone, I know that I am most certainly not the Limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today. I, like you, very much wish Rush was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting. For over 32 years, Rush has cherished you, his loyal audience, and always looked forward to every single show. It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer.”
“RIP Rush Limbaugh, the creator of talk radio and by extension the alternative media, an indispensable and iconic conservative voice,” tweeted Ben Shapiro.
“This is a tremendously sad day for those who love this country,” Levin said, “a tremendously sad day for those who salute the flag and embrace the military and law enforcement, a tremendously sad day because we’ve lost Thomas Paine. We’ve lost a voice like no other and like there will never be again, and particularly at a time when we need a voice like his.”
“There is no talk radio as we know it without Rush Limbaugh. It just doesn’t exist, and I’d even make the argument in many ways there’s no Fox News or even some of these other opinionated cable networks,” Hannity said. “He literally did something that nobody at the time ever thought was possible.”
Glenn Beck said, “No words … I just got news the Rush Limbaugh has passed away. [T]hanks Rush for all you taught, gave and were. A hero to many. An icon. A patriot. A revolutionary that saved radio. Heavens [sic] gain, our loss.”
