Whether you love him or hate him, there is no doubt that Guy Fieri is making a difference through charitable donations. When discussing why he gives so freely with “Delish,” he responded, “I’ve been given all these opportunities. Why not share it with someone? If I didn’t, I’d feel like I squandered it.” Guy uses his show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” to “drive” business to smaller, mom-and-pop businesses. He raised nearly $25 million to assist restaurant workers during the COVID pandemic. He has developed scholarship funds to support schools and worked to provide disaster relief after the fires in Hawaii. His generous donations don’t stop there. The “Mayor of Flavortown” is using his platform to help millions.

4. Dick VanDyke Is Ancient — But He Is Far From Ancient History

Dick Van Dyke is an oddball. He doesn't follow a script, he just gives from the heart.

Old does not even begin to describe Dick VanDyke. But he never stops moving! His off-the-cuff charitable contributions are as legendary as his dancing. In October 2022, he was spotted giving out five-dollar bills to people standing in line at the Malibu Community Labor Exchange. He chatted with folks and let them know that they mattered. He has also been seen dropping off armfuls of winter coats there. While not among the largest monetary donors, “Mr. Vandy” is a beloved entity. He and his wife work to raise funds for The Midnight Mission to help people on a path the self-sufficiency. At 98, this generous man does not intend to stop giving.
