I’ve long wanted to find a charitable cause to really get involved with and be passionate about. I get invited to a lot of charity events to sing, and I am happy to help and bring a source of entertainment, but I’m sort of disconnected from them.
I want to be as healthy as I possibly can be. I just want to make sure that I do everything to take care of myself. Like they say, charity begins at home. Love begins at home, too. So I want to do the best for me. I want to pamper myself and do the best for my body.
My biggest hope for the future is that we’re successful in delivering the treatment to people through the charity and that burns just become something that happens in people’s lives but doesn’t make them a misfit in society and exclude them and stop all their dreams and ambitions.
All things are perceived in the light of charity, and hence under the aspect of beauty; for beauty is simply reality seen with the eyes of love.
Evelyn Underhill

Jon Fishman
I will say that when I retire, I will probably do something to help others. I don’t know know what it will be… probably I’ll get involved in some charity.
When ‘Joy Luck Club’ came out, I kind of became a role model for the Asian acting community. I started to talk at colleges and emcee charity things. I’m much more connected to my sense of being Asian now.
Lauren Tom
I think that charity is a tricky thing, because a lot of times, people equate charity with handouts. I don’t believe in handouts.
In spite of what are unprecedented measures in scale and scope, I can’t stand here and say I can save every single job, protect every single business or indeed every single charity. That’s just simply not possible.
Rishi Sunak
I give lectures for money, but all the money goes to charity. So, I make no money from it.
I’ve known those guys for decades and done some charity fundraisers with them in L.A. The response was so great from the Boston/Doobies/Felder package.
Don’t be surprised if you find me doing some charity work in another country.
I am a full-time Research Fellow at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, a small 501(c)(3) public charity supported primarily by individual donations.
I advise wannabe singers to form a band, practise in your garage if you have to, but do as many charity or open mic shows as possible to get experience. I sang for seven years before getting a record deal, and I was already loving what I was doing. I just got lucky and got discovered.
Sometimes people give to charity because they have been persuaded to believe in a cause, sometimes just to get rid of you and sometimes because they are befuddled and confused.
I'd love to work with children. I've set up the charity

I’d love to work with children. I’ve set up the charity, and that’s going well. We’ve got a lot of projects we’re doing in Somalia, so I’d like to see how we’re doing there.
If I’m doing an event, if it’s a charity event, where it’s a walk-around event, where I gotta put a thousand small plates out in the course of a four-hour event, I gotta make sure I can do something that I know I can produce, that’s going to be consistent and good all night long.
The Muslim Prophet Mohammed was a big believer in charity and firmly established helping those in need as a basis of the religion.

I wasn’t going to a charity event in order to get a picture, in order to get into a magazine.
The goal of the program, called Giving With Purpose, is to teach college students – and anyone else who cares to register – how to beneficially contribute to charity. That’s not necessarily easy. There are IRS rules for giving that must be learned, and there is wayward, wasteful philanthropy to be avoided.
I do charity work for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the USO. I made all the money I’m ever going to need – all my family is every going to need – so I try to give back to the community.
I find talented, driven, boundlessly ambitious people and help them solve problems that will hopefully improve the lives of millions. Sometimes this means investing in startup founders. Other times, it involves helping organize and fundraise for charity or politics.
My mother died when I was very young. I didn’t want to be in the position I was in, but I eventually pulled my head out of the sand, started listening to people, and decided to use my role for good. I am now fired up and energized and love charity stuff, meeting people, and making them laugh.
When our William was killed, there wasn’t a child bereavement charity. I was extremely blessed with a very close family, wonderful friends, a supportive husband, and two further children.
I think charity begins with your family and you take it from there.
Caprice Bourret
Education and health were always matters of charity. You educated children and you helped the sick because they were good things to do, not because you were going to make money out of them. If you let the money-making principle, the profit-seeking motive, anywhere near education and health, things go bad.
Actually I do support a charity, They help protect endangered species.
Alex Meraz
IRS rules generally prohibit acts of ‘self-dealing,’ in which a charity’s leaders use the nonprofit group’s money to buy things for themselves.
It is better for me to serve a charity as an actor or a voice, rather than at a luncheon being just a celebrity.
I feel like I understand Trump’s character better than the average person now, having seen all of these little interactions with charity. I wanted to keep doing something that’s like that, and not just doing pure politics. So my piece of the Trump empire is the golf courses, Mar-a-Lago, and the winery.
Let it Flow is a water charity that my mom and I started back in 2011. We focus mostly on building and the majority of the time, repairing wells because of the insane amount of the number of wells out there in the world just need to be repaired by simple parts.
The designer of my Emmy gown is donating my gown to the charity for an auction.
Maria Menounos
As soon as you become of interest to the media, the charity requests start rolling in, and it’s not easy saying no. But if you endorse every charity that asks you, you’re not really endorsing any of them. It has to mean something.
In Edinburgh, they’ve got the most insane charity shops ever.
Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.
Northern white people love the Negro in a sort of abstract way, as a race; through a sense of justice, charity, and philanthropy, they will liberally assist in his elevation.
People who identify themselves as conservatives donate money to charity more often than people who identify themselves as liberals. They donate more money and a higher percentage of their incomes.
Charity fundraising galas have always been a wonderful way to support a myriad of causes.

I am very driven. I work really hard, whether it’s acting or my charity or even poker. When I focus on something I give it my all.
Shannon Elizabeth
After Lyndon Johnson‘s Great Society, the belief in decent housing as a political right or social obligation was supplanted in the U.S. by the notion that suitable shelter should be an act of charity.
I’ll take no charity! What I get I’ll earn by taking it. I would feel no pleasure it being given to me, any more than a huntsman would take pleasure being made a present of a dead fox, in place of getting a run across country after it.
A lot of people think the Breakfast for Children program is charity. But what does it do? It takes the people from a stage to another stage. Any program that’s revolutionary is an advancing program. Revolution is change.
I feel very honored to have been asked to sign for Rovers, and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it’s all about.

We all work for money. At 34, maybe I can donate to cha

We all work for money. At 34, maybe I can donate to charity.
I’m going to give away a lot more than half my money. I’d be happy to give that to the government if the government put together programs that were like I’m giving away to charity, in which I believe the money is effectively used to help people.
I feel Salman Khan is not only a superstar, but also the greatest human being because of the kind of charity he does, the kind of noble thoughts he has and the love and care he shows towards his close ones.
This cancer isn’t life-threatening so I consider myself to be very fortunate. In the course of my charity work I meet so many people who have suffered terribly – what I’ve got really isn’t an issue.
Profit at any cost is one extreme of the spectrum. On the other extreme is unselfish submission for the social good or, more accurately, charity. Somewhere in the middle is peaceful, and much required, coexistence.
What is superfluous to your poor estate, distribute. This is distributive charity: a virtue so sacred that crimes against it are the forerunner of inevitable doom.
The charity work is just a part of what I do. Like… I make time to clean my house, to care for my pets, to visit my extended family, because those things are important to me. Same with helping others.

I have a charity called the Chain Of Hope, where we target children from poor areas where heart surgery is not available, and we offer our services.
Magdi Yacoub

The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time… love lavished on absolute fools. Love’s a charity ward, you know.
Lawrence Durrell
The world calls for, and expects from us, simplicity of life, the spirit of prayer, charity towards all, especially towards the lowly and the poor, obedience and humility, detachment, and self-sacrifice. Without this mark of holiness, our word will have difficulty in touching the heart of modern man.
Sparks is a sporting charity that puts on golf tournaments for sick children, and my animal charities include Oldham Cats and Feline Care, a big cat charity close to me in Norfolk. I’m also a Freemason and the money they raise for charity is phenomenal.
Growing up, my family was like an unofficial foster home. My dad was a judge and my mom was a director of a women and children‘s charity.
As for charity, it is a matter in which the immediate effect on the persons directly concerned, and the ultimate consequence to the general good, are apt to be at complete war with one another.
Charity is a supreme virtue, and the great channel through which the mercy of God is passed onto mankind.
Conrad Hilton
When they asked me what charity I wanted to play for on ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’ the first thing that came to my mind was that this would be a great opportunity to let people know about TOPSoccer.
If younger people see older people who haven’t planned ahead and have to rely on charity, the young will be more likely to provide for the future. Today when someone plans poorly, the only consequence people see is a demand for more government.
Save the Children is an awesome charity that has helped more than 125 million children around the world, providing everything from school books to food to blankets and shelter.
After my touring life, I’d love to be more involved with charity. It gives me a lot of fulfillment, you know? I would love to get people who are into my music more active in charity work. In the future, when I have more time, I’d love to do spend more time on that.
The products I review are typically lent to me by their manufacturers for a few weeks or months. I return any products I am lent for review, except for items of minor value that companies typically don’t want back. In the case of these items, I either discard them or give them away to charity.
Welfare distorts behavior, makes one less personally responsible and reduces the role of private charity. This principle applies to corporate welfare.

By making a company successful, you can provide more employment, and, if you treat your staff well, then your business itself becomes a charity.
Guo Guangchang
There is an unwritten social rule now that you can harangue the wealthy to give money away, but you mustn’t ask how the money was made. There are no galas celebrating the money people knew better than to seek. Charity begins after profit.
I play a lot of charity golf mainly. I’m a bandit 18 if I play two or three times a week.
There are a lot worse things you can do with all your bucks than giving them to even a mediocre mutual fund – such as, for example, giving them to a mediocre hedge fund. If supporting the lifestyle of a mediocre fund manager is your favorite charity, who am I to stop you?
I always recommend signing up to a race or charity event if you’re finding it tough to get going. I love it because it means I’m training for a reason. Being accountable is the best fear tactic for making you get fit.
I started this charity, Fashion for Relief, in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina happened. New Orleans was actually the first place I visited in the United States. It was one of my first big jobs, a shoot for British ‘Elle.’ It was April 14, 1986.
I have been able to travel all over the country and see many places that I probably never would have visited. I have also participated in many charity events for worthy causes.
Rob Mariano

We want to build a flagship refugee home. And I’m going to establish a charity for traumatized children.
Til Schweiger
Everybody in life is pursuing money: left, right, charity, nonprofits, everybody’s pursuing money. Everybody wants a raise. Everybody wants to improve their standard of living. Everybody wants to be rich, and especially those that go to Washington.
I’m going to stop giving too much money to charity – the charity is going to become my family. I’m only half-kidding.
I’m always looking to the next thing. There are always hurdles, whether it’s the White House dinner or hosting charity events or that night’s show: Until they’re over, I worry, then I move right on to the next thing. It’s hard for me to enjoy the moment. I’m just thinking about not failing.
The welfare state creates its own victim/client constituency. By making individuals free and independent, we reduce the need for ‘charity’ to those truly needy citizens what we can certainly afford to help through real charity.
I think musicians and artists are the most philanthropic people I know. Their charity record of the music business would hold up to the work of anybody.
Glenn Frey
I wanted to become a teacher, like my mother, or a charity worker. But my mom says that when I was younger, I told her, ‘People are going to know me,’ so I guess I always had that idea.
The UFC actually does a lot of charity stuff, but they don’t talk about it that much.
I don’t know anything about propaganda for Chinese reunification. I only know about charity and environmental work. I just want to do good.
I open events for museums and I do charity work and photography.
Bill Wyman
I run a charity. If my name pops up in your call ID, chances are I’m about to ask you for something – money, free ad space, your first born. So it is probably no surprise that people often don’t take my calls.
Nancy Lublin
If I spend silly, it’s going to look bad, in a way, because I do all this charity work as well.
I knit for Caps for Good – a charity that gives hats to Third World babies – while I watch movies with friends.
Isabelle Fuhrman

The faith must express itself in charity and in solidarity, which is the civil form of charity.
Claudio Hummes
Anticipate charity by preventing poverty.
You have to feel more involved than just writing out a cheque. Charity is almost the wrong word – I think people are beginning to feel more responsible for the world.
Charity never lacks what is her own, all that she needs for her own security. Not alone does she have it, she abounds with it. She wants this abundance for herself that she may share it with all; and she reserves enough for herself so that she disappoints nobody. For charity is perfect only when full.
I’ve been working for a while with a Scottish suicide prevention charity called The Joshua Nolan Foundation that brings the conversation about mental health into schools and provides free counseling for those who need it.
To go back to visit the early days with Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, when she was the dance captain of ‘How to Succeed,’ and finding them again 25 years later and working with them on ‘Charity.’ That was really great fun.
Donna McKechnie
Meeting people who want to start a charity, help out their families, or raise money for a good cause has been really fun.
Overall, Twitter has been a great tool for myself and my family as far as promoting our charity and the events we do and really just kind of interacting with our fans. But it can be in the negative form, and guys have to be careful.
As someone who cares about human rights, I am deeply dismayed to learn that Mr. McCain‘s charity has accepted money from Saudi Arabia. Their track record of oppressing women, gays, Christians, and political opponents is notoriously horrific.

I’ve always been into volunteer work and charity work.
My choice was to ruin my son’s life by giving him money or giving 90-plus percent to charity. Not much of a choice.
Manoj Bhargava
I am very shy. When I go to a charity ball, I don’t mind if people look at my sleeves. I mind terribly if I have to say something.
Charity should always be a constant.
Eva LaRue
The ransoming of captives has been practiced by Jews for many centuries and has been regarded as a greater obligation than charity for the poor.
My father worked for a children’s home called Dr. Barnardo’s Homes. They’re a charity.
We are constituted so that simple acts of kindness, such as giving to charity or expressing gratitude, have a positive effect on our long-term moods. The key to the happy life, it seems, is the good life: a life with sustained relationships, challenging work, and connections to community.
I teach kids to read on a Saturday for this charity cal

I teach kids to read on a Saturday for this charity called Real Action. It’s a voluntary school because lots of the kids around my area of London are from immigrant families and need extra help with reading.
It’s almost charity work, what people have done, turning other people on to my music.
I admire people like Warren Buffett that are donating so much money to charity.
Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
Charity. To love human beings in so far as they are nothing. That is to love them as God does.
I only ever met Ronaldinho once, at a charity event in Rio. Once every year, he stages a game and invites different players and personalities to play and raise money for his charity.
You could go out and give a million dollars to a charity tomorrow to help the homeless. You could argue that it is just wasted. They are not putting anything back into the community.
‘Mull of Kintyre’ was the biggest single of all time up until ‘Don’t They Know It’s Christmas‘ by that big charity.

To be poor does not mean you lack the means to extend charity to another. You may lack money or food, but you have the gift of friendship to overwhelm the loneliness that grips the lives of so many.
I definitely only want to do charity work that I’m hands-on involved in. I don’t want to get a dress on and go to a stupid event.
I have a friend who lives in the South Side of Chicago. I helped out at a church charity there where they try to give a bit of cohesion to a desperate area. Everyone was very welcoming.
With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.
I’m very politically active, but that has nothing to do with my charity.
Bernard Marcus
Besides music and charity, fashion is one of my interests that has been growing over the past few years. I think it goes so hand in hand, music and fashion.
