18. Sandra Bullock
Unlike some other celebrities on this list (not to mention any names), Sandra Bullock values her privacy. She is a private person, and keeps to herself – well, as much as her career allows! But there’s one thing she did manage to keep private throughout the past decade, and that’s her multiple acts of charity. The Oscar-winning actress, quietly and under our noses, donated millions of dollars to charities and private people for different causes. What’s really beautiful about it is that she’s never done any of those things for fame or recognition, but simply out of her kind heart.
We all remember the disastrous Hurricane Harvey which struck Texas in 2017, and while many celebrities reached a hand to help the devastated state, the A-list actress donated $1 million to the victims of the hurricane, without getting any recognition whatsoever; and that’s just a small taste of her benevolence. Bullock doesn’t wait for others to act and follows their lead, but on the contrary – often, she is the first to lend a hand when disaster strikes. For example, she was the first celebrity to donate funds after the 2011 major earthquake and tsunami in Japan, where she donated $1 million to help the victims.
