Bill and Melissa Gates and I really hate to say this, Bob Geldorf.

 

Unfortunately Bob is just so right all the time.

I do a lot of work for charity but I don't like to talk about it.


Well done smashie.

He certainly gets involved.

 

Here's another unlikely hero - Madonna's ex, and practically a person in his own right, Sean Penn went to Haiti after the earthquake to look into organising fundraising, but ended up living there for much of each year, sharing a 3-bedroom house with 20 other people and running the charity himself from the front line.

Hero in that regard but he's also very loud about imperialistic Britain occupying the Malvinas so he loses all points for that.

David Beckham? No, couldn't keep his hands to himself. So who are our wholesome heroes and heroins?

 

You can keep your wholesome.  Beckham, as far as I'm concerned, is incredibly grounded given his fame and wealth.  He does also do a pretty phenomenal amount for charidee.

 

Quite a lot of footballers do - I believe it's still the case that the England team waive their match fees for internationals with the money going to charity instead.

 

I know of a few baseball players (from the Caribbean in particular) who set up foundations to support education and sports facilities in their home communities.

Beware of Frenchman playing accordions.

 

Hollande made his first speech in Tulle after being elected president in 2012. He and his then partner Valérier Trierweiler were serenaded by an accordionist playing La Vie en Rose.
