Celebrity Philanthropists Support Good Causes

Let’s put a spin on charity, social activism and leaving a legacy. It’s fun and sexy to support a worthy cause. If it wasn’t worthwhile, these philanthropic hollywood celebs wouldn’t do it … right?

– It’s a choice to become aware and take action.
– It’s a choice to be a role model for good and make an impact.
– It’s a choice to be a global citizen and leave the world better than when we arrived.

With great admiration, I commend these celebrities and non-profit organizations for their courage, due diligence and passion in making our future brighter.
