Happy Monday! I left you with a rather heavy topic on Saturday (Helter Skelter/Charles Manson) so today let’s start off the week with gratitude and recognition for those who use their influence as politicians, actors, musicians, etc. to make a difference for those less fortunate!

Jonny Lee Miller

Elementary‘s Jonny Lee Miller (who also happens to be one of my favorite actors) is also an advocate for doing good for others. He has run several marathons in order to raise funds for Jonah’s Just Begun (looking for a cure for a rare disease: Sanfilippo Syndrome) and said, “Helping the person standing next to you is the right thing to do.”

Keith Urban

Musician Keith Urban is an advisory board member at the St. Jude’s Hospital for Children, a place where doctors are pioneering research and treatments for children with life-threatening diseases, including cancer. He has even collaborated on numerous times to raise funds.

And as I said in the “C for Charity” post, former President Bill Clinton is a supporter of World Vision. Next time when you look at a “celebrity”, take a good look at their charitable donations. How are they using their fame, name, and fortune to help others?
