Generous Celebrities

It comes as no surprise when you hear of celebrities being prevalent in the charitable sector. Either with their participation as board members, making appearances or giving very generous donations. Just this week, the notable, Oprah Winfrey was a keynote speaker at a luncheon for N Street Village. They are a Washington based organization who cater to homeless women. Not only was her presence already greatly appreciated, but the $1,000,000 donation she made truly took the organization off guard. It was a complete surprise, and a lavish one at that. Oh, the dream of donating like a celeb! To learn more about various organizations partnering with the generosity of celebrities, check out this well put together list.
