When you have millions of dollars and millions of fans it can be easy to lose sight of what's important. These celebs prove that even though they've found success and fame, it doesn't mean they can't lend their voices to those in need. Let these celebs and their causes inspire you to make an impact this year:


It turns out his 1-800 number isn't all about bling. After catching a special on Strawberry Mansion High School, a Philadelphia public school where 96% of students live in poverty, Drake donated $75,000 to help build the school a recording studio. Thanks to the special and Drake's donation, college acceptances at Strawberry Mansion doubled. In 2013 Drake also teamed up with The Game to cover the funeral expenses of a mom whose children and boyfriend perished in a fire.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie's eponymous lip kits offer more than a perfect pout. 100% of the proceeds from her limited edition lipstick "Smile" were donated to Smile Train, an organization that provides free cleft palate surgery to children around the world. Kylie's $150,000 personal donation to Smile Train also helped them provide 638 cleft palate surgeries to kids in need.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift loves surprising her fans on the stage and off. The 27-year-old donated $1,989 to one fan struggling to one fan struggling to pay of her student debt and also donated $5,000 to a Go Fund Me seeking to cover the funeral costs for one of Taylor's biggest fans. After the 2015 Louisiana Flood she also donated 1 million to help communities cleanup and rebuild.

Gina Rodriguez

After making waves with her heartfelt and empowering acceptance speech at the Golden Globes in 2015, Gina Rodriguez is now supporting arts education with her own organization. The We Will Foundation is committed to making arts education accessible to disprivileged kids. They've already donated tens of thousands of dollars to local dance classes and family clinics. She wasn't joking when said "I can and I will."


Beyonce's philanthropic efforts demonstrate that Queen B is committed to providing way more than a great performance. During the Formation Tour Beyonce teamed up with United Way Worldwide, Chime for Change, and Global Citizen. On the road she encouraged fans to learn more and get involved with the causes. Beyonce's also committed herself to drawing attention to the Flint Water Crisis. Her company Tidal (which she co-owns with hubby Jay Z) also made a 1.5 million donation to Black Lives Matter, making her one of the most charitable celebs around.

While we may not all have the bank account to give like a rock star, there is always a way to contribute to the greater good!

Will you be tempted by Kanye West ice cream?

As we all know Kanye Kardashian West is not given to humble introspection.

He considers himself a genius, has equated himself with God, says he is "Shakespeare in the flesh" and describes his music as "perfect".

We think it's safe to say that humility is not one of Yeezy's many qualities.

Kanye’s All Day—I Feel Like That—Is Trip Down UnMedicated Yeezy Lane

Here are just a few of Kanye's thoughts on himself, aka the greatest man alive;

"I am God's vessel.  But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."

"I want to be as unrealistic as possible. The worst thing about me comparing myself to Steve Jobs is that it's too realistic of an idea.  What I need to say is I'm more like Willy Wonka."

"I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things."

"I am the number one human being in music. That means any person that's living or breathing is number two."

Yeah, he's definitely his own biggest fan, in fact you could say if he was an ice-cream he'd lick himself....

Well that is EXACTLY what he'll be able to do if he visits an upcoming art exhibition devoted to Kanye West's favorite subject—Kanye West.

How About A Bible Featuring Kanye As God?

The exhibit is called the Life Of Pablo and is coming to New York's Avant Garde by MMC and features Kanye-inspired displays, all centered around The Great One's latest album of the same name.

Surprisingly, the exhibition was not created by West himself, but by a stalker devoted follower named Brianni Taylor.  She told Complex;

"When Kanye's latest album released, I heard it fully and in my mind I said 'you're going to curate an art exhibition based around him, he's brilliant'.

I look at Kanye West as a visionary. I think his music his videos, his style, his vision as a whole is pretty much flawless. I feel that Kanye is such a great talent, and sometimes people let the things he says via social media or television dilute his real messages … Kanye is very futuristic, way before his time, he sees things before it happens. I don’t see a reason NOT to have an exhibition inspired by his vision, inspired by him.”

Taylor listened to that voice in her head and has followed through on her dream to celebrate all things Kanye.

5 Reasons Why Kanye West Is The Biggest Asshole EVER!

There will be lots of Yeezy inspired art including paintings, sculptures, music, clothing and even a clock, but just in case you want to take home a bit of genius inside you, there will also be some Kanye snacks to gobble up.

On offer will be an ice cream, called "Imma Let You Finish". It will feature white chocolate ice cream with chocolate and be covered in marshmallows and Teddy Grahams (to represent the teddy bear on Kanye's first three albums).

If you're still feeling peckish after a Kanye-licking you can move onto the cupcakes topped with edible images of his different album covers.

We're thinking it's more shrine than art exhibit but that's just splitting hairs. The good thing is that the proceeds will go to charityThe Kids League.

There's no word as to whether the great man himself will put in an appearance at the event on May 19 but hopefully not, we're not sure there's enough medication in the world that would get Brianni through the excitement.

Kanye West Is $53 million In Debt And Asks For Your Prayers

Incidentally, it's not the first time Kanye has inspired an ice cream flavor—Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream devoted their whole menu to the greatest rapper on earth last year to celebrate his birthday—we particularly enjoyed the 'Yeezus Chips' but just couldn't stomach the 'Kim K Thirst Trap Sundae'.




Diddy Gifts Million Dollars French Montana

French Montana got one million reasons to love P Diddy this Christmas... and now we have one million reasons to love French Montana!

The generous mogul was so impressed with Montana’s work with Bad Boy records over the last year, he threw him an extra cool million in a bonus check.

French, 31,  told TMZ, that entire check is going to charity!  Specifically, the charity he started in the South Bronx to help schools and young kids.

Now those tube socks you got for your dad don't seem all that impressive.

"Shout out to @iamdiddy for that million dollar gift bonus" French wrote on Instagram.

French proved that his loyalty to his boss was beyond question back in August when he blasted the 50 Cent-endorsed liquor brand EFFEN, which was poised to compete with Ciroc, a vodka company in which Diddy own a stake. Montana claimed 50 Cent's Effen was "watered down" and took video of himself dumping a box of Effen bottles into the garbage, which he then promptly posted to Instagram.

“This is how I feel about your bullshit,” French Montana says, before dumping the box, which retails for around $210, into the garbage. “What the fuck is this?”

50, however, seemed pretty convinced that the video was inspired less by his palate and more by fear of losing his job and took to his IG in the interest of keeping shit real.

“Yo, I just seen a clip of French Montana throwing bottles of EFFEN in the garbage,” 50 Cent says. “You know Puffy called him like, ‘You said you fucking like that shit? You fucking bitch, you want your record out don’t you? You fucking dummy. You fucking playing? They fucking putting us out of business you fucking asshole. You better do something!’”

Nevertheless, Montana, who’s net worth is around $8 million, is a charitable vodka connoisseur. Along with his $1 million Christmas gift, he also recently donated 100 pairs of Reeboks to a Bronx education program.

abandoned puppy extreme makeover

Los Angeles dog rescuer Kris Kelly received a call about an abandoned dog who was so matted he couldn’t even see!

He kept sneaking into a family’s yard in the South Gate region of Los Angeles, so they called The Kris Kelly Foundation and she rushed to the location.

After gaining his trust with a McDonald’s cheeseburger, Kris, a Hollywood actress, was able to leash the bichon/poodle mix and get him into her car.

“He was so starved for affection, he instantly curled up in my lap," she tells Popdust exclusively. “It was like he knew we were saving him!”

The groomer had to put Lynwood, his new name, under anesthesia because his matting was so bad and the de-matting process would have caused the pup extreme discomfort. He was also suffering from a severe skin infection, eye infection, and ear infection.

“His dreadlocks were literally dragging on the ground. He had puss crusted in the corners of his eyes and mud caked into his fur. He smelled awful—in the video you can see me trying not to inhale when he was on my lap,” Kris recalls.

“But when he woke up he was like a new dog. He was jumping around and kissing everyone at the vet's office, and when he turned around for me to scratch his back he kept whipping me in the face with his tail! He was just so happy! Dogs know when they are rescued, and they are forever grateful.”

It wasn’t long before the beautiful white poodle mix caught the eye of  a new, loving owner and is now in a beautiful fur-ever home!

kim kardashian breast feeding texting

Philanthropist and new mother Kim Kardashian tweeted her decision to donate 1,000 pairs of shoes to a 'cute' charity she saw on TV, all while breastfeeding her newest acquisition, baby Saint West.

She may not be Mother of the Year but Kim Kardashian is a strong contender for Multi-Tasker of the year.

Following a dignified four day social media silence following the birth of her baby, Kim evidently could no longer contain herself, launching the shoe story in six giddy tweets.

She discovered the charity, called Soles for Souls, watching pop culture show Dish Nation on TV.

Too excited to research the charity herself, she called on her twitter followers to find the details for her.

While Kim didn't explicitly note which footwear she would donate, we can assume they will include husband Kanye's Yeezy Boost.

While some women use breastfeeding as a precious time to savor intimacy with their baby, Kim is blessed by a non-stop urge to do good. And we should salute her!

When Emerson was born 15 months ago via surrogate, Ashley Harris Moore and her husband Alastair had a world of wonderful new possibilities in front of them.

The first time parents were excited to watch their baby boy grow up and had big ideas for the future. But their plans took a detour when Ashley, 33, was put on the waiting list for a double lung transplant.

Lamar Odom Condition: Fans Come Forward To Offer Their Kidneys

The Texas native, who lives in London with her family, is battling cystic fibrosis—a genetic disorder that affects the lungs. Currently there is no cure and life expectancy is around 35 years of age.

In the last few months Ashley’s health has significantly declined and her lungs are functioning at just 16 percent. She now relies on a machine to provide with her oxygen 24 hours a day.

"It's not just my life but it's going to be a difference between whether or not a boy is in this world without his mother or a husband without his wife. As a family we've still got so much more waiting for us. My husband and I are still madly in love and we've got the most gorgeous baby boy," she told Britain's The Mirror.

"It's painful and terrifying in equal measure to think I may have to leave him and it's completely out of my control - but without a transplant I will die."

Ashley, who is unable to hold her baby or feed him without being on machines, has been in the hospital for the past year and doctors placed her on the transplant list in April.

According to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, one in three people with the disease die while waiting for a transplant.

"Emerson is my world now and what a terrible end it would be for me to leave now, when our story should just be beginning. A donor would be the greatest gift anyone could ever give me and I can guarantee I would never take it for granted for a second," Ashley explains.

Although Ashley has been incredibly ill, she was actively campaigning to raise more awareness for people to register to donate their organs. However, she’s currently in such critical condition that she’s no longer able to continue to do so.

Heartwarming Rescue Of Puppy Who Fell Into Hot Tar And Was Unable To Move

Her friends have stepped in and created the #HopeForMoore campaign, which is taking off on social media. When she was able to communicate a few weeks ago, she recently wrote on Facebook the following messages.

I want everyone to understand the nature of chronic illness. It’s not just about the person who is sick, it’s about their families, and how the illness spreads amongst them like blight on beloved garden flowers; nothing close is spared.

I want you to understand the power of organ donation. I want you to really think about the fact that organ donation does not just save the life of the recipient, but the recipient’s family, too. If I am lucky enough to get lungs, it won’t just mean I have my life back, it will also mean the most wanted and beloved little boy in the world will grow up with a mommy, and the real world version of a fairytale love story and marriage will continue.

When you’re an organ donor, you have the ability to save a life and keep a family together.
