23. George Clooney
Any list about charitable celebrities wouldn’t be complete without George Clooney. In the film industry, George Clooney has a pretty typical character he regularly plays, but when it comes to charity, the Hollywood star is all over the place – in the best possible sense of the word. He fights for many different causes, including gay rights, environmental and climate issues, world conflicts (namely the Darfur conflict), and he’s active in politics.
George Clooney made it a personal goal of his to end world poverty, and with his wealth, we’re not sure it’s an impossible mission. He has been active in his charity endeavors for years, and this decade it became more prominent than ever. In 2017, he released a viral video under the title “George Clooney: Hunger Crisis 2017 – millions at risk of starvation,” encouraging Americans to donate to the Global Emergency Response Coalition to help alleviate the hunger in developing countries, specifically in Africa. If he doesn’t deserve a place on this list, we don’t who who does.
