11. Ben Affleck
When Ben Affleck gives to charity – he does so in style! Okay, so perhaps Ben Affleck didn’t do quite as much as others celebrities on the list, but this is our list and we make the rules, and we say Ben Affleck is in! So why does he deserves a place here and what does it mean giving away in style? In 2011, he was among the celebrities who participated in an annual poker tournament which revenues were donated to a charity devoted to the education of children – Determined to Succeed, and Geffen Playhouse – a non-profit organization dedicated to the cultural life and youngsters educational programs of Los Angeles.
You didn’t really think that was it, did you? Yes, Ben Affleck gambled for charity, but he’s a lot more generous than that; almost a decade ago, in 2010, the actor established a foundation called The Eastern Congo Initiative, who’s main focus, unsurprisingly, is working for the people of Eastern Congo. Mostly, they provide advocacy and grants for community-developing initiatives. This foundation, dedicated to develop the Democratic Republic of Congo, is the first of its kind in the U.S. Now do you agree he deserves a place on the list?
