Clay Aiken – Not Just Thinking of Himself!

Sometime it is nice to see  people get some positive press.  I usually try to spend a few minutes each day checking out what is new on Google.  Today, I found this small but positive blog that made me smile.  It’s about time that Clay Aiken got some positive comments about the National Inclusion Project.

People Giving Money and Time to the Needy

Here’s a good list of millionaires who help people in need.  While this list is not intended to be exhaustive, it will let you see the nice side of some of the rich and famous people out there that are willing to assist the poor.  In this article, I will give you the names of the people giving away free money to assist others, along with some basic insight to their charitable gifts.  Let’s look at some of the people that are doing good things with their money and not just worrying about themselves.

Singers and Musicians

Alicia Keys:  Alicia Keys is one of the many millionaires that help people in need.  One of the charities she gives a great deal of support to is Keep a Child Alive.  This groups looks to provide life-saving care and support for those suffering from HIV or AIDS.  Many singers and musicians are involved in this same charity.  It is a very popular one with the musical industry and provides assistance to many people that need it.

John Bon Jovi:  In 1991, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. was founded.  There are many celebrities and millionaires who help people in need through this organization.  Among the others that provide support are Donny Osmond and Martina McBride, just to name a couple.  There are many others on the list as well that assist this organization.

Clay Aiken:  Aiken co-founded the National Inclusion Project in 2003.  It is designed to help close the gap of those with special needs, so they can live in the world around them.  This is a really great organization that offers help to people that are truly in need.

Sting:  The Rainforest Foundation US was co-founded in 1989 by the musician Sting and Trudie Styler.  The foundation looks to assist indigenous people of the rainforest and hopes to help protect their culture and ways of life.  It’s a really great organization that is making a difference in the world today.

Hopefully, you have found this article to be at least somewhat inspirational.  If so, please consider looking up any or all of the foundations and organizations listed to make a charitable contribution.   While it’s very easy to be cynical and think the rich don’t do anything to assist others, it’s clear that this is incorrect.  I hope you have enjoyed this list of millionaires that help people in need.

The blog also lists actors, athletes, and politicians who do outstanding things with their money.  You can visit the site at Info Barrel

I was reminded of this fun video by a poster on a Clay Message Board.  Even if you have seen it before, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  3. Glad you found that blog on Millionaires Giving Back…. thanks Musicfan. We as Clay fans know how much Clay gives back with his foundation, and his being a Unicef Ambassador, but those that don't follow Clay have really no idea. It really is about time that Clay got recognition for all his good deeds.

    Also, thanks for the video…That "burlesque" performance put a smile on my face this morning….It's gonna be a good day!!!

  4. Well, Clay Aiken is in good company!! It's nice to see him get some recognition even though he doesn't do it for the recognition–he was doing good deeds long before he was 'famous'. It's just who he is and it's one of the many things I love about him.
