Who are the Top 20 Charitable Celebrities in 2017?

Updated on August 26, 2018

People have adored celebrities for many years. They are considered our royalty. We want to know what their wearing, what their driving, how big their homes are. We can become fascinated with every intricate detail of their lives. I love to keep track of celebrities too. I stand in line at the supermarket and read the latest headlines of my favorite celebrities. What I have begun to think about is with the state of the economy and so many people unemployed and homeless, what are celebrities doing to contribute to helping some of the less fortunate? Are they donating their time or money for this cause? Aren't most celebrities millionaires? Don't some of them have more money than they can ever spend in a lifetime? These are questions that have crossed my mind.

I have the utmost respect for the talent and hard work that goes into making a film, recording a record and touring the world to promote a record. My concern with celebrities is why don't more of them give back to the fans that have elevated them to the level they have achieved. Their fans support their favorite celebrities by buying the movie tickets and buying their CD's so why don't some celebrities do more to make the world a better place. Instead, I see a lot of them buying $500,000 cars and million dollar homes in several different countries, and shoes that cost more than some of us make in a year. How many families could you feed with that money, how many schools could you buy new computers for, how many homes could you buy for homeless families to live in? There is just so many things that celebrities could do with just their everyday spending money. I don't think they should give their fortunes away, but if they have made all of that money off of the backs of their legion of fans, they can't find it in their heart to share a small portion of that to help the less fortunate?

I think we should consider whether or not a celebrity is giving back. Are they at least donating their time to mentor a child or something that may not have monetary value, but doing something to show that they care about the fans that support them. So the next time you think about supporting your favorite celebrity, just check and see what positive things they are doing to give back to the fans that love them so much.

      Rich, some celebrities could be doing more for our people here in America, but at least they are doing something charitable. What their motives are we don't know. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Like you said, there are many celebrities and other notable persons that are giving. But there are many in my oppinion, that are wrongly giving. I refer to people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. These two made billions off the American people but they turn around and give billions to foreign aid? Don't we have hungry in this country? Don't we have poverty in this country? Who did they get their billions from? Africa? Asia? Middle east? I think not. Also I am a little irked with the likes of Pitt, Jolie and Bullock. Don't we have orphanages in America? Don't we have children in the foster care system? How much money did they make from Africa or Asia? Who are they trying to impress? Seems like the more money they make, the less they want to spend it in America. Sorry but I am an American for Americans first.
