Stars On Working For A Cause

Voice of America recently put up an article entitled “Celebrity Activism: Publicity Stunt or Sincere Care?” Statements from some of the most well-known supporters of humanitarian causes are mentioned in the article.

Many critics also say celebrity activists are hypocrites- spending time with AIDS patients in Africa, and then coming home to extravagant lifestyles. But actor Don Cheadle says that is precisely why they are doing what they do. “You do sit there, and you do go, ‘Wow I have this embarrassment of wealth, and what am I doing? And very closely on the heels of that you go, “Well, this is what I’m doing, and this is how I’m trying to do it, and this is the way I’m trying to draw focus,” he said.

Interestingly, the article also states that the United Nations in particular actively asks for help from celebrities. There might be some truth to this–do we all know exactly how many celebrity Goodwill Ambassadors there are right now?

The piece ends by saying that the good work celebrities do is more important than the publicity generated for themselves. One can also say that the publicity generated by the celebs for the causes they support is also a great help in increasing public awareness.
