Celebrities Who Do Good Things Aside from Their FameEveryone is a hero in one way or another. Some just wear the mask known as fame to play the "I do whatever" card. Here are some celebrities who try to be great people, and generally are sucessful.
The Top Ten
Russell Wilson pays weekly visits to Seattle Children's Hospital, Wilson generally spazzes kids out, 'cause they get to meet him, and he tries to provide a sense of hope.
Yes, he's a bigwig in the music industry, even in 2020, but when his free-time isn't spent getting emotions out by playing his guitar, Jon Bon Jovi is working in the Soul Kitchen, feeding the homeless.
You don't have to be a hardcore fan of his, to know he loves the homeless, and is an overall good guy, when he's not behind the microphone. But you DO have to learn a bit about the guy.
I never thought I'd put her on this list (mostly out of prejudice), but Jolie used her fame for the better, and made extensive donations to various humanitarian causes, served as an UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, and paid visits to at-risk communities, in 2015.
Not surprised she makes this list.
I thought she was kind of weird, but when I looked up celebrities who use their fame to help their community, world, and so on, I found out that Sandra Bullock is in disaster relief and donated 1,000,000 bucks to the American Red Cross in 2011
Wow. I thought the females on your list are ditzy liars. Even if so, they have hearts of gold somewhere in there
Star Lord, here may be a bit goofy, when in that character, but is a member of the Make-a-Wish Foundation and March of Dimes. Chris Pratt also, like Russell Wilson, visits children with poor health.
He's different from the rest of the Marvel actors, and tries to be a good guy. I don't want to look like the bad guy who put a wet rag on your list,so I'm gonna leave everyone in the dark with regards to who and why.
Donates 10% of his income to charity. Chris and the rest of Coldplay gave their support to individuals leaving the Middle East to escape persecution and the constant war in the Middle East
In 2017 Adele went through much of her time doing beneath the radar charity work with impeded youthful Londoners. In July of that year, the artist was seen at Grenfell Tower comforting individuals less than 24 hours after the blast tore through the building, killing 72. Adele utilized social media to pay tribute to the casualties and excite open gifts.
I used to think she looks a bit strange, but I'm starting to think she's pretty. The being a "do-gooder" just enforces that.
Sir Elton John is known partly for a foundation he'd set up to fight HIV/Aids around the world. Elton John also gave away £34.3m ($42830410.00 in the American dollar) in 2016
To be honest, it's generous to call Stiller a celebrity, since he hasn't been in any movies since Night At the Museum 3, but hey, Ben Stiller served pancakes during Hurricane Sandy. Not gonna deny credit where it's due.
J-law may have played the role of a hero in The Hunger Games movies, but Jennifer Lawrence became a real hero when she aided a collapsed woman and waited with her while paramedics came, back in 2012
In 2009, Carrie Underwood launched The C.A.T.S. Foundation, which was established to help the country star’s hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma. The organization is dedicated to aiding both humans and animals by providing supplies and programs to local schools, as well as the building of a new animal shelter.
Carrie’s love for animals doesn’t stop with her own charity; she has also partnered with the Humane Society of the United States to raise money toward animal welfare.
Zendaya has worked with many different charities, including PETA, UNICEF, and, most notably, Convoy of Hope. This organization’s mission expresses a passion to “feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreach, and disaster response.”
Zendaya joined Convoy of Hope after Hurricane Sandy destroyed parts of New York and New Jersey back in 2012. She also partnered with Feed ONE and encouraged fans to wish her a happy birthday by donating to help end world hunger. She was able to donate over $6,000 each to Haiti, Tanzania, and the Philippines.
I'm surprised that characters like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift have ever done anything short of show up late for concerts. The latter can be said, whether I like it or not. Apparently, Taylor Swift is known for her good deeds, almost as much as her pop songs. Just one example is her meeting a six-year-old girl, also named Taylor, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Swift's own mother tested negative for cancer, so it must be something she has an unbreakable stance on.
Much like Adam Levine, back when Andrew Garfield was dating Emma Stone, they used the paparazzi to promote 'Youth Mentoring Connection',
'Worldwide Orphans Foundation',
and 'Gilda's Club NYC'
Used the paparazzi for the better and basically advertised for people to text 9099 -or something along those lines- to the American Red Cross
A lot of people hate Justin Bieber with a passion, but Justin Bieber, much like Chris Pratt, is a member of the Make-a-Wish foundation, but Justin Bieber granted his 200th wish to Annalysha Brown-Rafanan, and since then has probably fulfilled more wishes. (I still don't like the guy, but can respect him more, now.)
Back in 2015, Sheeran had helped an old friend, Amy Wadge, pay for their mortgage by featuring Wadge in his song "Thinking Out Loud"
Probably the most charitable celebrity ever obviously it helps a lot simply the sheer amount of money he made but still.
I wasn't sure about whether that was true but yeah I probably should not have added him sorry.
So...I researched his allegations. He was proven innocent like three times.
I'm not crazy about the guy, but he was King of Donations, which also happens to be what this article called him. Check it out.
