Sometimes it feels like celebrities live in their own little bubble, padded by wealth and completely detached from real-world problems. Other superstars, however, are proving that they know exactly what life is like outside la la land.

These five have made it their life mission to use their wealth and fame to extend a helping hand to the people around them.

1. Dolly Parton.

The queen of country founded Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in 1995. The library mails free books to children who are 5 years old or younger to encourage kids to read and to make sure they have access to books. In 2020, they gifted their 150-millionth book!

2. Misha Collins.

The former White House intern, poet, and actor best known for his role on the TV show “Supernatural” founded Random Acts in 2010 after a devastating earthquake in Haiti to raise money for UNICEF’s relief fund. Now, Random Acts raises funds to fight childhood hunger, build schools and orphanages, and advocate for mental health.

In 2011, Collins also founded Random Acts’ affiliate, GISH, a gigantic scavenger hunt that harnesses the power of absurdity and fun to raise money for charity.

3. Tom Holland and his brothers.

The actor known for his role as Marvel’s Spider-Man (AKA Peter Parker) heads The Brothers Trust alongside his brothers Sam, Harry, and Paddy.

Originally created in 2017 by their parents, Niki and Dom Holland, the trust is dedicated to supporting charities that are more likely to be overlooked. The trust harnesses Holland’s fame as a platform to promote these charities.

4. Michael J. Fox.

The “Back to the Future” actor founded The Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000 to find the cure for Parkinson’s Disease, a condition Fox was diagnosed with himself in 1991.

“When the cure for Parkinson’s is found – and it will be – it will be because of all of us,” he said.

5. Lady Gaga.

The popstar known for her over-the-top attire and hearty vocals doesn’t just have a song called “Born This Way.”

Born This Way Foundation, co-founded and led by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, supports the mental health of young people and works with them to create a kinder and braver world,” their website states.

We’re so grateful these celebrities are using their time, money, and talents to help others!
