The Most Generous Celebrities.
As we all know, George & Amal Clooney are the stuntiest stunt queens to have ever lived. From the wedding to end all stunt queen weddings, to Amal’s fashion runway looks for every legal hearing she attends, they know how to hook the press and keep them riveted by their romance or whatever it might be.
But one thing they both also are is pretty fucking generous celebrities, because they’ve just donated $2.25 Million to sending 3,000 Syrian children to school – partnering with UNICEF and HP, who could only scrape together $1 Million from their $2.7 Billion annual profit. Still, i don’t see those cold-hearted bitches at Apple ponying up.
George and Amal join a number of generous celebs who’ve been donating time, energy and effort to big causes. Let’s take a look at some of them
File Sandy under ‘Quietly Generous’. You might not hear it, but Bullock not only donates millions to every major disaster that seems to come along, but is also known for gently, anonymously and otherwise providing donations across important causes.
JK Rowling was knocked off of Forbes billionaire (!) list for giving over $160 Million in charitable donations. Let those numbers sink in for a quick minute and immediately grab your quill.
Sir Elton John
Elton John is widely known as one of Hollywood’s leading advocates for HIV charities and his own AIDs charities, hosting annual post-award bashes to raise money for the causes, and giving up to $36 Million in a single year to the charity. He may be a diva, but he’s also got a heart of gold.
Aside from raising millions for charity off her name alone, Britney is known for being extremely generous when it comes to donations, as well as giving her time to run dance classes for kids, and lead spin-classes for charity.
Not only did Taylor donate over $1m to the Louisana floods, but she’s a constant donation advocate and pusher across various charities, as well as being known to be extremely generous with her time when it involves her fans – often showing up at parties and crashing weddings to spread the TayTay love. Say what you will about snakey swift, when it comes to the people who put her on top, she’s got nothing but love.
Regularly donating up to $9 Million to charity per year was no big deal for Brangelina, a couple who took time out of their lives as movie stars to visit people in impoverished parts of the world and draw attention to their plight. So touched by the lives of others, Angelina Jolie has become a director with a specialty for stories around places shes visited.
Few celebrities have taken their role as ambassadors for a cause as seriously as Jennifer Garner does for her Save the Children work. Constantly pictured at events, fundraisers, school book readings and even lobbying in congress, Garner not only supports the charity, she actively pushes it’s agenda with her starpower at the top levels of government. She’s so dedicated she was promoted to the board of trustees at STC, and whilst there is no indication of how much she’s donated to the cause other than her time and passion, we hear its a lot. Indeed, she’s become more of a philanthropist than a movie star in the past few years. In other news, she supports over 22 other charitable causes too.
