12. Halle Berry
The Academy-Award winning actress Halle Berry brings something new to the list: she is the ambassador of the diabetes aware campaign. All charity causes are equally important, and saving the planet is just as important as diabetes and other illnesses. Exactly 10 years ago, in 2009, she was the recipient of the “Mothers Who Make A Difference” of Love Our children USA. All those are impressive donations, but perhaps her most important charity work is with the Jenese Center in Los Angeles – a center dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence.
This cause is personally close to the actress, since she grew up in a home of domestic violence and managed to escape it and start over. Thus, she feels as if she has a special connection to the organization, and that she can bring to it her own experience and knowledge of how to escape such a dangerous environment. Among other things, in 2015, she performed as the spokesperson for a benefit held by the organization.
