Your Favorite Celebs Doing Amazing Deeds

Often times, the media portrays our favorite celebrities in pretty negative lights—physical attributes are often times valued much higher than personality, and scandalous situations are more interesting than acts of generosity. Sometimes it’s hard to look past the scandals and glamour of celebrities, but when we do, we can find that these celebrities do some amazing charity work that creates remarkable impacts on those less fortunate and those in need. Here are some of the most inspiring times your favorite celebs have been wonderful people!

Harry Styles Doing Charity Work in South Africa

While on his break during the On The Road Again Tour with One Direction, Harry decided to visit to the Lalela Project by himself in Cape Town to give back and support the students in South Africa.

Lalela is an organization that provides art education for at-risk youth in Cape Town. Through “global art exchange projects,” the Lalela Project’s goal is to inspire and educate children affected by poverty using art. Harry Styles came in and spoke to some of the students, as well as provided the students tickets for One Direction’s upcoming show in Cape Town. How incredible!

Lady Gaga’s Cycling Fundraiser

On April 21st, Lady Gaga will be hosting a cycling fundraising through her Born This Way Foundation. 49 people will have the chance to ride with Gaga for either $1,000 for a bike or $2,500 for a bike right next to her! The event itself will be held at the SoulCycle in Chicago, IL.

The famous Born This Way Foundation was created in 2012 in part with her mother. The foundation aims to developing and supporting youth and youth programs that encourage them to “create a kinder and braver world.” Lady Gaga is no stranger to being very different and unconventional in her ways, so her foundation has been nothing short of creative and inspiring. You go Gaga!

John Legend’s Private Performance Raffle

John Legend definitely has some experience in charity work, including his “Free America” campaign, singing a duet with Sam Smith and his famous song “Lay Me Down” for the Comic Relief charity event, and many more. Legend announced that he is raffling off a once-in-a-lifetime private performance to anyone for a small fee of $10 to his campaign.

The goal of Legend’s Show Me Campaign is to create quality education for all children, no matter what economic or class status. Proceeds from this raffle will be going towards his old high school, South High School (located in Ohio), to rebuild their auditorium. What a fantastic project!
