Dan Aykroyd

This guy is very active when it comes to raising and giving free money to people in need.  Millionaires and the rich and famous don’t always help out others, but Aykroyd does.  A partial listing of the many causes he’s been known to support include: Artists Against Racism, Dream Foundation, Eblen Charities, SickKids Foundation, and Best Friend’s Animal Society.  He’s just one of the many rich and famous millionaires and billionaires that are doing their part to help those less fortunate.

Keanu Reeves

He won the 2009 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Charity Race, which is just one of the many fundraising efforts he’s taken part.  Of course, he’s not limited to racing, since he’s known to help other groups. PETA, the Wildlife WayStation, and Angelwear all benefit from the work of Reeves.  It’s nice to see some high level actors doing their part to make sure those in need of assistance get some.  He’s just one of the many celebrities that donate time and money to aid others.

William Shatner

Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, and the Canadian Intensive Care Foundation of Calgary all benefit from the charitable work of Shatner.  In a rather amusing story of giving, Mr. Shatner sold his removed kidney stone for $25,000 and used the money to help fund building a house for Habitat for Humanity.  The philanthropic work of Shatner is aiding many people that are less fortunate or need financial help.  The free money he helps to raise for groups is making a difference.
