When the beautiful faces that grace our screens, coffee tables and thoughts go home, they are faced with the exact same concerns that us regular people are worried about. The glitz, glamour, smoke and lights are all replaced with the real world – one that is in desperate need of help – from the environment to giving charity.
On the bright side however, some celebrities are not only genius in the world of the arts, but giving back when they have a spare second to help our world flourish. Here is a list of some of those celebrities helping our planet!
When a devastating hurricane rocked Mexico earlier this year, Diego Luna and his good friend Gael Garcia were the first to reach out and help its victims. Garnering international support, they have managed to take on this initiative for a fund that is donating 100 percent of its proceeds to people who need it by building schools, homes and communities that were destroyed. Over 1 million raised in 1 month alone – now that’s awesome!

She is a spokeswoman for PETA, has participated in numerous campaigns to save animals and is a huge advocate of supporting vegetarianism and vegan lifestyles. She often posts about the correlation between clean eating and the environment. Definitely a change from the high fashion Cher -Alicia is saving the earth one step at a time!
