21. Christian Bale
Not all charity acts must be big, life-changing acts of heroism. Every once is a while celebrities are here to remind us that even small deeds of kindness create ripples. Earlier this year, Christian Bale (Batman, for you) warmed our hearts when he a flew a four year-old leukemia patient to Disneyland, making his dream come true. The actor purchased the kid and his family plane tickets from Ohio to Los Angeles, and spent the day with them at Disneyland.
Plane tickets to Disneyland might be small money compared to the millions of dollars donated to charities by other celebrities, but you can’t put a price on making a kid’s dream come true. Taking Jayden to Disneyland and providing him a relief from his everyday struggles with the illness is not something you can put a price on. So perhaps he didn’t make first place on the list of the decade, but he did make first place in our hearts! And had this been a list of most charitable deeds of the year, there’s no doubt he’d be first place.
