This multi-billionaire may have money, but he has certainly put it to good use. When he was just 17 years old, he started his first charity, Student Valley Centre. His promise is to donate up to$3 billion alone to reduce global warming. The various charities and NPO’s that he supports are just too many to list here, so be sure to go take a look.
The PayPal founder, Elon Musk has given so much back to the world, that we are not sure where to start. His charity contributions alone are super impressive and with his ongoing additions to technology and environmental causes we wait with bated breath as to what he will do next.
He has been making a difference for over 50 years with his musical contribution and while that is impressive enough, he also is very big on contributing to the community and world as a whole. His main focus has always been to the gay community and in particular those that suffer from HIV and AIDS.
Who can forget Bono? We remember him with the 80’s drive called Live Aid and Band Aid, where all the popular singers got together. But, Bono is so much more than that. Besides a legend in the musical industry, he is an avid contributor to many charities and really does get involved, with not only his money offerings.
