Celebrities with Big Hearts!

Tuesday 5:00 PM, 23/02/2010
Nicolas Cage regularly donates millions of dollars from his movie earnings to his favourite charities, like Amnesty International and he was also one of many Hollywood celebs who donated to help New Orleans recover from hurricane Katrina. He gives as much as 2 million dollars every year! Ben Affleck is such a generous guy! He has used some of his millions for encouraging young people to vote, helping poor children in the USA and his Project Greenlight, that gives young film makers a chance to make their film ideas a reality.
Singer Bono has been involved in charity work since 1986. He works all over the world, especially in Africa to help make the world a better place for the poor and suffering. Madonna's big charity project is the African country of Malawi. She has rescued and adopted two children from orphanages there, her son David Banda and daughter Mercy James. Her charity "Raising Malawi" helps to grow food in the country and she is also building a school there.

TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey is probably the celebrity who has donated the most money to charity in her career.  She has raised  over $200 million through her "Oprah Winfrey Foundation" and "Angel Network".

George Clooney is definitely a celebrity with a big heart! His pet projects include "Not On Our Watch"  with Don Cheadle and Brad Pitt, which tries to create awareness for the people in the Darfur region of Sudan and he also arranged a huge celebrity-packed telethon to raise funds for the people of Haiti last month.

Mel Gibson is a very religious Catholic who has used his millions to raise money for millions of Catholic children all around the world and especially Mexico, suffering from disease and poverty. Even action hero Jacki Chan is generous! Through "Operation Smile" he has given many Chinese kids warm winter jackets, 450 in total! Thanks to UNICEF for that one! Heeheee Sandra Bullock is another celebrity who has helped rebuild New Orleans after hurrican Katrina. She built the  "New Orleans  Warren Easton High School Hall of Fame". 
Elton John's "Elton John Foundation" has raised more than 125 miljoner dollars to help with the fight against HIV/Aids around the world. What an amazing man!
For some of the biggest celebrities in the world, living the high life with luxury clothing, cars and houses isn't enough. They feel there is more they can do with their fame and they decide to give back those who don't have as much as they do. Of course Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, with their adopted children from poor countries and all the charity work they do alongside friends like George Clooney and Bono from U2 are only a few of these celebs. See which other celebs have huge hearts and how they give back below. Don't forget to vote for your favourite!

Monday 9:32 PM, 02/03/2009
BBC Radio has been forced to apologise for Bono and his dirty mouth live on the air! U2's frontman called Coldplay's Chris Martin a wanker and then a totally dysfunctional cretin. Big oops! Later Bono said he was only joking and thought that Chris was a great melodist and compared him with Paul McCartney, but the damage was already done. The poor radio host Jo Wiley was clearly very embarrassed afterwards! Listen to the whole thing here:
