According to a poll from Forbes magazine, celebrities can be quite giving at times. The carefree and single Jessica Simpson is among the luminaries on the list. She was noted for her work as a youth ambassador for “Operation Smile”, which provides corrective surgery to poor children with facial deformities.
Bono, as would be expected, was recognized for his globetrotting efforts to heads of state to discuss the AIDS crisis and third world debt.
Angelina Jolie, the UN Goodwill Ambassador, was noted for her work with refugee agencies.
Beloved comical action hero Jackie Chan, who keeps such a low profile that no one would even have guessed the extent of his giving, was recognized for the work of a foundation he created in 1998. They have donated thousands of dollars to aid tsunami victims in South Asia and a Los Angeles homeless charity.
