Most A-listers are so wealthy that it would be morally questionable if they didn't give money to charity. That being said, some really go above and beyond. Many of the celebs on this list came from humble beginnings and know how hard it can be to get a good start in life.
Rapper Kodak Black has just launched a US$100,000 scholarship honoring Meadow Pollack, one of the victims of the Parkland mass shooting in 2018. The 23-year-old visited Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on the three-year anniversary of the mass shooting that claimed the lives of 17 people and announced that the scholarship will be in Pollack's name at the Southeastern University Law School, where her brother is currently studying.
Black, who was reportedly Pollack's favorite rapper, said in a speech, "They [were] young and none of them deserved this," adding that it's about more than just Pollack: "It's about all of us."
