Hearts of gold: incredibly charitable celebs
While we often hear about extravagant celebrity purchases, from cars to handbags that could pay off student loans, many stars have also decided to give back to the society that praises them. Beyond their mere influence or social media posts, many kindhearted celebrities have put their money where their mouth is and donated impressive sums of money to those who aren’t so fortunate. Of course, their fame and influence are also huge boosts in raising awareness for the causes that matter.
One of the latest celebs to go the giving way? Sia. In late November, she went without her famous wigs and showed up at a Walmart in Southern California to pay for shoppers' groceries. Oh, but not as herself! She tried to convince folks her name was Cici and that she had just won the lottery! And she almost got away with it too, until one grateful woman realized who she was and shared the news. As if that weren't enough, Sia was also spotted footing the bill for customers at a nearby TJ Maxx store, this all before Thanksgiving.
