Black Celebrities Giving Back

163
0

Black Celebrities, like others  donate to various charities and causes.  When people who are rich and famous give back to others there is a renewed hope in mankind. Here we give examples of what has been done in the past.
It must be noted that this is a snapshot of giving which is in the public domain. It is possible that more giving is being done, which is private or not yet reported. Also a person supporting 30 Charities and another supporting 5 charities does not indicate any “giving back” since we do not report the amount of MONEY or TIME given.

These serve as examples of giving that we feel should be copied and extended around the world.
