Celebrities and their generosity can be an awesome thing. They make the bucks. No one is denying that but they are also among the first to give back to those who are less fortunate, most of the time without anyone being aware.
Celine Dion made a contribution of one million dollars to aid with the hurricane Katrina effort.
Nicholas Cage gave one million dollars to the Katrina effort.
Sandra Bullock shared one million dollars with the American Red Cross after Sept. 11th, and another million for aid in tsunami relief in December 2004.
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills donated 1.9 million dollars for aid after the tsunami.
Steven Spielberg bestowed 1.5 million for the tsunami effort, and another 1.5 million for aid of hurricane Katrina.
Angelina Jolie has donated over $3 million of her personal wealth to United Nations Refugee Agency.
In 2001, Arnold Schwarzenegger evidently shared 15 percent of his entire income that year, totaling $4.1 million to various charities including the Nelson Mandela children's fund and the Twin Towers fund.
In 2008, Rush Limbaugh donated $4.2 million to the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, a charity that helps support the children of Marines or federal law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty.
I can’t help but admire those more that do not publicize their charitable acts. Using it for a publicity stunt cheapens it.
This website has an alphabetical list of celebrities and the charity’s they support. The sheer numbers will boggle your mind. So hats off to these people and their immense Celebriosity.
And that, my friends, is the Word.
