Many stars have donated to a worthy cause at some point in time. However, some of these philanthropists simply contribute to improve their public image. This reflects badly upon the others who genuinely care. Here are 10 charitable celebrities who are truly devoted to their causes, giving them substantial amounts of money, time and effort.
1. Taylor Swift Donates Her Prom Dress
The Red singer is known for having a heart of gold, which expresses itself regularly through generous donations and charity events. Recently, the singer was in the news for donating her prom dress to donatemydress.org, which raised $1,000 for the worthy cause.
2. Matt Damon Is One of the Most Charitable Celebrities
Matt Damon co-founded Not On Our Watch, which brings attention to the human tragedies and brutalities in third world countries. He is also a devoted supporter of the ONE campaign, which seeks to erase AIDS from poor countries around the world. Last but definitely not the least, Matt is the founder of Water.org, which partners with local communities to create sustainable water resources and sanitation systems in regions with low development. That’s putting your celebrity to good use.
