CELEBRITY celebrities

Graced with money, influence, and visibility, celebrities hold an immense power in today’s world. Some use that power to evade the laws of regular citizens, while others decide to use that power to help said citizens.

Many stars have partnered with organizations or have become UN Goodwill Ambassadors, but celebrities like Pharrell, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, and Kim Kardashian—who have always had a way of carving their own paths—are taking their own stand.

Everyone knows the world is in need of help, whether it’s social inequality or the impending environmental collapse. Sometimes the pressure to change the world is too much for people to think about if they’re already struggling to provide enough for themselves. That’s where the celebrity aid really shines. They fill in the gaps, often with money, but also by raising awareness and influencing the masses, so they can return a slice of their good fortune to the world.

Through humanitarian action, these A-listers bring to light serious issues such as poverty, hunger, social injustice, and natural disasters, helping thousands of vulnerable people around the world.

Take Kim Kardashian, for example, who has been dubbed the “Princess of Prison Reform” for her tireless work to free nonviolent prisoners with draconian sentences, even once quietly freeing 17 inmates within 90 days. Jay-Z and Pharrell consistently make headlines for the amount they give back to their community, and Nicki Minaj has also recently taken a stand for the social issues she believes in by deciding not to perform in a country whose rules she rejects.
