It's hard to say what Legoland had in mind when it invited Jenna Elfman — one of Hollywood's most outspoken Scientologists — to light the Carlsbad, Calif., amusement park's 30-foot-tall Christmas tree Nov. 30. The next day, the park tweeted that it had donated $10,000 at the Dharma & Greg star's request to Youth for Human Rights.

Watchdog groups quickly accused the charity of being a Scientology front that focuses on youth recruitment. Legoland spokeswoman Julie Estrada tells THR, "We invite our tree-lighting guests without prejudice and provide a small donation to their charity of choice in appreciation of their participation."
