6 Celebs We Love For Their Selfless Deeds
Not everyday do we spot a celeb who is blessed with a heart that is so rare. Through their philanthropic works, they not only help those in need, but also set an example to the million others who have the power to help those in need. The celebs, I’ve carefully picked below, are people who have personally touched my heart and taught me something so beautiful. I hope you also learn something from them.
Not including the two of them to this list would be blaspheme. They together have created a Jolie-Pitt foundation that helps various humanitarian crises taking place around the world. In order to launch the foundation, they also made a donation of $1 million to social organisations like Doctors Without Borders and Global Action for Children. Angelina also offers help to the ONE Campaign, UNICEF, the Afghanistan Relief Organization and Kids in Need of Defense. In fact, she is the Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR that protects refugees around the world. Brad, on the other hand, works with Global Green, Human Rights Watch, Live 8 and the ONE Campaign.

2. George Clooney
Women around the world are in love with him. He is, in fact, one of the world's most eligible bachelors and why not? He is good-looking and has a heart of gold. He is the co-founder of Not On Our Watch along with a couple of other celebrities. This foundation works against racial extermination taking place in Darfur in Sudan. Apart from being a part of the Board of Trustees for the United Way, George is gives out plenty of generous donations to the ONE Campaign, fighting against poverty.

3. Scarlett Johansson
Apart from being incredibly beautiful, Scarlett is also an amazing person. Oxfam is a foundation that works against injustice taking place in the society. Scarlett has toured to countries like India and Sri Lanka to promote this organization. She has also helped Hurricane Katrina victims by dishing out tons of food from the USA Harvest to the homeless.

4. Hilary Duff
Apart from performing several times to gather funds for a noble cause, Hilary also requests her fans to carry canned foods to her concerts and to donate them to the USA Harvest. With this simple act, Hilary and her fans together have gathered and donated about 4 million pounds of food. She used to be a charter member for Kids With A Cause. She would pay visits to the unprivileged children in hospitals and also escort disadvantaged youth to theme parks. She is also the Youth Ambassador for Return To Freedom that works to protect wild horses.

Along with music and his obsession with his Irish band U2, if there is something that Bono loves doing, it is helping others in need. This love of Bono knows no boundaries and Bono does all it takes to eradicate the evils of poverty from the world. He also creates awareness through his songs and collects huge funds through his charity concerts. He has founded powerful social organisations like the ONE Campaign that works to help the poor and marginalized. He also uses his time to support the Amnesty International, Red Cross, RED, DATA and UNICEF.

The celebrities mentioned above taught us that there could not be anything better than helping someone in need. It is one of the noblest thing you could ever do. I think we all should learn from them. If all of us think like them, nothing could stop this world from turning into a wonderful place to live in.
