According to me i think it's good when celebrities make jobs can benefit the poor people and it's like advertisment to charity jobs for example their audience are going to do the same thing. in all situations they are all beneficiaries regardless they are looking for publicity or not in the end they do a good job .

I think is great idea to famous people practice charity because, shared your time, money and influence to promove humanitarian cause and spread this behavior to all world.

It's my pleasure to share my view in 2019, more then ten years since this podcast been made.
in my view doing work for charities isn't bad idea simpley we have two parts winning.

Helping the needy we make the world a better place!!! Thanks to charity , someone will have a chance for life, someone will have a chance for a better life!!!!

I think it´s always a good idea for every person in the world do charitys work, even they are celebrities. Charity is the least we all ought to do in favour to the poorest people around the world. As we say, the exemple drags in. So, when we see a famous person doing something nice, even if for selfishness or showing yourself as a good person, it will encourage many people to do the same.

I consider that charity is a valuable activity regardless your occupation. If you can provide assisstance to people by virtue of your popularity, why would you not do it ? However, it looks strange when a pop-star takes part in charity evening several times a year and allow himself/ herself to buy expensive goods or even squander it on something dangerous for the nature. For instance it can be a hanting. Therefore, stars should have in mind that they are estimated not only on the basis of their fame, goods deeds, but also on the grounds how they waste money

I Would like to meet Meghan markel
She's member of the British royal family
I am admir her because she very beautiful and
Cuteness , and I love the change's that happend in her life , her true love change her life.

I want to share something about famous celebrities .mostly celebrities are doing job for publicity .it would be even better if those people are thought of the poor people..

Yes,according to me it's a great idea fpr celebrities to do charity work. I don't think they do it for publicity or grabbing attention from everyone. They do it because they want to help needy people.

Why did you use Which in ( which famous person... ),didn't use who for sane ?
