Shakira

This singing sen­sa­tion can do much more than belt a beau­ti­ful tune while shak­ing her hips. Shakira is the founder of not just one, but two or­ga­ni­za­tions that gives back to chil­dren in­ter­na­tion­ally. The Bare­foot Foun­da­tion and Los Pies Descal­zos Foun­da­tion, both founded when the “Beau­ti­ful Liar” singer was only 18, have pro­vided ed­u­ca­tion for hun­dreds of chil­dren around the world. Shakira has also been in­volved with other re­lief and char­ity ef­forts in­clud­ing UNICEF’s World Baby Shower and Hope for Haiti Now.

Reese Wither­spoon

Of­ten, celebri­ties will part­ner with char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions to ben­e­fit a cause near to their hearts. Reese Wither­spoon has done just that! Named as the first-ever Honorary Chair­per­son, Reese has part­nered with the Avon Foun­da­tion for Women for many years, serv­ing as their global am­bas­sador. The foun­da­tion’s mis­sion is to em­power women while also ed­u­cat­ing them and about rais­ing money to fight breast can­cer, do­mes­tic abuse and an over­all im­prove­ment for the lives of women.

Carmelo An­thony

When he’s not run­ning up and down the court, Carmelo can be spot­ted in­ter­act­ing with Amer­ica’s chil­dren. Ev­ery year, Carmelo hosts “A Very Melo Christ­mas” dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son; an event where mid­dleschool stu­dents can come to, have a fun time and talk to one another about their dreams and goals. Carmelo is in­volved with char­ity ef­forts across the coun­try, but his heart is in his home­town of Bal­ti­more, MD which is where he does most of his char­ity work.

Tay­lor Swift

Re­cently named “The most char­i­ta­ble celebrity,” Swift does not “Shake It Off” when it comes to giv­ing back. In 2013, Swift pub­li­cally gave to 25 dif­fer­ent char­i­ties! The singer-song­writer gives to many mu­si­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions in­clud­ing the Nashville Sym­phony and MusiCares, just to name a few.
