To be a celebrity these days means more than just being a singer or actor and collecting a hefty check. Being a celebrity also means being a public figure, and that title comes with a powerful platform. Luckily for us, many stars are using their platforms for good and not just for their own personal, self-promoting benefit. These 10 celebrities aren’t just doing their everyday jobs, they’re also impacting the culture in a positive way.
Chance the Rapper
Chance should change his name to Chance the Philanthropist with all of the work outside of rapping he is doing. Chance has made it his mission to provide better for our school systems and our children. As a father himself, the 25-year-old artist created his own youth empowerment charity called SocialWorks aimed to teach and empower the youth of Chicago. Just last year it was announced that SocialWorks raised over $2 million dollars that was given to 20 Chicago public schools.
