38. Ellen Degeneres
It’s no secret that award-winner T.V host Ellen DeGeneres is among the most influential figures in the entertainment industry. Ever since her T.V show started to gain momentum, little by little, the American crowd became familiar with her agenda of promoting significant charities and causes.
DeGeneres uses her show as a platform to promote this cause; for example, she hosted the CEO of the Humane Society of the United States to speak about their efforts regarding animal protection legalization. Besides her battles for animal rights, she also works to raise awareness of Aids and other diseases, in the form of donating funds and speaking at events that promote the critical cause.
