As we unwind from Thanksgiving 2012 and think of how blessed we are, we wanted to give a shout-out to a few celebs — they have a ton to be thankful for, but make a point of giving others a lot to be thankful for as well! Whether it's for the donation of money or time, we (and countless others) are thanking their lucky stars for these stars!
Awesomely, there are way too many charitable stars to even keep up with these days. This is just a sampling of some celebs and their causes, and we've provided links below so you can find out more about a certain cause if you want to learn more about them.
We hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving!
Meryl Streep: National Women's History Museum
And some more...
Elton John: Elton John AIDS Foundation
While we'd be thankful enough for the step Angie is taking to show off that leg, we're more impressed by the steps Angie and Brad have taken to become Hollywood's most charitable couple. Together, they formed the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation which has aided humanitarian crises around the world since 2006. Brad also came to the aid of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, establishing the Make it Right Foundation to restore New Orleans. Of course, Angie has been active in humanitarian causes for over a decade — most recently, she donated $50,000 to Tina Brown's Women in the World Foundation in honor of Malala Yousafzai, a teen advocate for education rights who was killed by the Taliban in October.
