As we all know, celebrities have a sense of power that us regular folk don’t always emulate. And as the saying goes, with power comes responsibility. These celebrities have all used their power for the greater good.

Leonardo DiCaprio, One of Hollywood’s Most Dedicated Activists
DiCaprio cares about the planet, that’s for sure. He started the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in an attempt to protect the earth from climate change, including vulnerable wildlife, ecosystems, and communities.
In 2017, he also showed his support for Hurricane Harvey victims by making a $1 million donation to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund. DiCaprio’s donation was the first the national fund received.
