19. Susan Sarandon
Perhaps some of you remember the massive earthquake and tsunami of Haiti in 2010. Many celebrities volunteered to help the victims of the earthquake rehabilitate, actress Susan Sarandon among them. As you can see in the picture, she has quite a way with children, and she truly shined while there, and helped to put a smile on the children’s faces. She was so involved in helping to rebuild the houses and other physical work, that she tripped and fell during her time there, and broke her ankle. Afterwards, this became the largest story of the celebrities helping in Haiti.
But the visit wasn’t enough for her, and even though she got badly injured, on the contrary – she fell in love with the country, and she had even more passion in her to change their lives for the better. Upon her return to the U.S (after attending a movie premiere with crutches), she joined the board of advisers for the YeleHaiti Foundation – a non-profit organization driving projects to develop culture, education and health in the poor trodden country.
