Charitable Celebs Who Lend Their Famous Names to Worthy Causes (PHOTOS)

Who says celebrities only blow their millions on mansions and cars?

A-listers like Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have all pitched in and contributed time and money to charitable causes over the years. Lately, Oscar-nominee George Clooney has been making waves with his activism -- even getting arrested with the CEO of Jewish World Watch after protesting at the Sudanese embassy on March 16, 2012.

    I don't think you should make assumptions about why an individual chooses to support an organization or cause just because they are a "star". I'm sure some celebrities do it because their agent tells them to, but George Clooney and Don Cheadle have put a lot of personal time and energy into working for peace and justice in Sudan, even putting themselves at personal risk to do so. Celebrities can do a lot to bring attention to important issues by lending their name, so even if they are not so passionate about it they can do a lot of good. What are you doing that qualifies you to pass judgement on others? If you're going to judge others, do it by their actions, not their supposed intentions.

    oh please most of the so called Charitable stars of now a days do it for the positive press that comes after not because it's the right thing to do. Unlike a Vanessa Redgrave or Joanne Woodward who are heavily involved in many charities such as Amfar the red cross and war veterans charities ect because it's the right thing to do. though in Redgrave's case Amfar is very close to her heart because her first husband renowned film director Tony Richardson died of Aids 11/14/1991 age 63 and one of the trustees awards is named in memory of their eldest daughter Natasha who's last public appearence before she died was the Amfar winter Gala in February 2009
