Some celebrities are well-known for their charity giving ways. Others keep their donations quiet. Either way, they set the pace for the rest of Hollywood. Which are the top charity giving celebs? Take a look and see.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
At the top of the list is Tinsel Town royal couple, Brangelina. They don't only give money, they also give of their time. Angelina was most recently given the title Special Envoy of High Commissioner Antonio Guterres. In addition to their own foundation, their charity list is long and notable. It includes Ante Up for Africa, Cure Autism Now, Doctors Without Borders, Global Action for Children, Human Rights Watch, Project A.L.S. and UNICEF.
The country songstress is big believer in standing up for what you believe. In 2007, she started a program to protect children from online predators. Her other charity work includes Feeding America, Habitat for Humanity, Heroes in Heels, Red Cross, Shriner's Hospital for Children and Wish Upon a Hero Foundation.
The reigning talk show queen doesn't always make her charity work public, but the quirky comedian supports 31 charities. They include Artists Against Racism, ONE Campaign, St. Jude's Research Hospital, Stomp Out Bullying, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and The Humane Society.
The American Idol host knows how lucky he's been in his career. That's why he shares his good fortune. His charity work includes Feeding America, Keep a Child Alive, Operation Once Upon a Time and Reality Cares. He also established the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
The Iron Lady doesn't advertise her charity work. However, that takes nothing away from the actress's giving ways. Her charitable list is long, including Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, Equality Now, Healthy Child/Healthy World, Stand Up to Cancer and St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.
The actress is beloved for more than her incredible talent. White has always done charity work. Her biggest soft spot is for animals. She's the honorary president for Morris Animal Foundation. She's also involved with Actors and Others for Animals and PAWS/LA. But she loves people too and donates time and effort to St. Francis Pantries and Shelters.
Like White, people love Bullock for her heart as well as her talent. She works with Partners in Health and the Red Cross. She also supported the Warren Easton Charter Foundation formed to rebuild a hurricane-damaged high school.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Another of Hollywood's Ã©lite couples, the Smiths put their hearts out there with their money. Their charity work includes Dream Foundation, Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the Miami Children's Hospital Foundation. They also formed the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, which supports inner-city communities and underprivileged children.
There's nothing this monster mama won't do for her little monsters. She supports multiple charities and causes with money and time. They include Alzheimer's Association, Lupus Foundation of America, M-A-C Aids Fund and Stand up to Cancer just to name a few. She also launched the Born This Way Foundation.
Gorgeous George formed Not on Our Watch, a foundation for stopping genocide in the Sudan. He's hosted a huge number of charitable events.
