Could you imagine having so much money that you could make a huge difference for many people and still be able to pay your own bills? While many of us aren’t that fortunate, these five celebrity couples are and make it a point to donate a generous amount of time and money to charities and to those in need.

Whether it’s for publicity or from the kindness of their hearts, these celebrity couples are giving and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Where should we even begin with this celebrity couple? A majority of their children are adopted from places in need. Together, these two have their hands in all sorts of causes, such as:

– United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
– Donation towards Afghans in Pakistan
– Building the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation (MJP)
– Support of the ONE Campaign
– Co-foundation of Not On Our Watch

Honestly, this celebrity couple does so much it would be impossible to list them all here. Jolie and Pitt are a stand up celebrity couple.

4. Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady: Celebrity couple Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady aren’t just the world’s top supermodel and football player. They are also a couple that make sure they give back to those less fortunate than they are by participating in:

5. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris: The latest celebrity couple to be sitting on top of the world together, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris make it a priority to give back to the world. We already know that Swift is one of the top givers, along with Bundchen and Jolie, but Calvin Harris gives back, too. They give back by:

– Donating to schools and facilitating new workshops and programs
– Donating to Red Cross
– Recording PSAs for the LGBT community and to promote reading for children
– Donating to medical causes like St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and V Foundation for Cancer Research
– Performing at charity events, such as Campaign Against Living Miserably

There’s no stopping Swift and Harris, just like there’s no stopping any of these celebrity couples from giving back to the world. You don’t have to be a celebrity to make a difference, however. There are ways that we, too, can help those less fortunate than we are.
