Many moguls and entrepreneurs have put themselves in the spotlight for reasons apart from their bread-winning professions. They have earned the title of humanitarian by risking the public’s cynicisms and going the mile to lend a helping hand to those in dire need of help, around the world. Some of them have even taken the step to bid their glamorous careers goodbye and switch gears to spend every waking hour doing their bit to change the world for the impoverished. True humanitarianism shows no boundaries- age, gender, sexual orientation, religious views, nationality, and with these established names doing their bit to reach out, sets an example to the rest of the world. With their untiring dedication and efforts, these famous celebs have helped throw light on critical issues- both domestic and international, inspiring the rest of the world to help spread joy and health. There are tons of charities and initiatives that dig deep into the crucial matters of the poverty-stricken and the resource-deprived, which are either headed by famous celebs or play an important role in it. Stars like Angelina Jolie, Shakira, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett are known for their selfless approach when it comes to humanitarianism. There are humanitarians who also spare no time to help those affected by disasters and natural calamities; one being the famous actor Jackie Chan who has raised millions during cases like these. From initiatives that help prevent HIV to trusts and charities that bring education to the forgotten lands, it is the sole efforts of these humanitarians that help restore complete faith in humanity.
