Sure, celebrities have it all — money, fame, amazing
genes wardrobes. But there are also a surprising number of celebs who have big hearts as well. Here are five of the most inspiring charities out there, along with the stars that are supporting them.
Love is Louder
Demi Lovato, Brittany Snow, Sophia Bush
This foundation was started to help support anyone who has ever felt alone or mistreated. The idea is that love can be so much louder than any negativity you get from others or from yourself. It helps people deal with bullying, negative self-image, depression, and other things that bring us down. Anyone can get involved by reaching out to someone with a positive message or having a fundraiser at your school.
Born This Way Foundation
Lady Gaga knows a thing or two about being misunderstood, eh? So she’s used her fame and money to help our world embrace people’s differences and working to create a safe environment for people to celebrate what makes them special. You can help by sharing your own story or donating to the cause.
Make a Wish Foundation
Justin is super busy obvs, but he still finds a way to make time for his fans that could use some cheering up. The Make a Wish Foundation is dedicated to helping children with life-threatening medical conditions live out their dreams. Justin meets with kids who have wished to see him face to face, plus donates money from the sales of his fragrance and runs charity drives to help support the cause. If that doesn’t make him perfect then we don’t know what does.
Not only does Lea have a killer voice, she also has a big heart when it comes to animals. Lea has been on a crusade, with the help of animal rights group PETA, to stop the abuse of animals. She has raised awareness mainly about the inhumane treatment of horses, especially carriage horses that are made to ride in horrible conditions in New York City. Rachel Berry would be so proud!
Nicki Minaj, Jesse McCartney, Greyson Chance
More and more teens are dropping out of high school (stay in school, kids!), so this foundation has come together to find ways to keep kids in schools. Nicki and friends have helped raise funds by hosting events and by going to schools who have demonstrated they’re motivating kids to stay on a good path.
So, which of these causes is your fave? Are you involved with any charities yourself? Tell us in the comments!
