I think it is a good idea for celebrities to do work for charity and it helps lot of people in pain. Since they are celebrities, the good things they do reaches many people and it inspires others also to give their hand.

Hi, everyone. Thanks for this podcast. It helps me to improve my English. As regards idea when celebrities to do their work for charity I think it is good. They can help poor people and do world around of us more kind.

Yeah. Very nice podcast.
You can speak Russian language?

In my opinion, it is a good idea. The reason for that is celebrities have a huge number of followers and lovers. This reason could make people from different places to do work for charity from different places in this world since those celebrities are being role models for many peoples around us & having a very big impact on the followers. Adding to that, the charity will get benefits from those celebrities. Furthermore, through celebrities we will get to know more about charities since we did not hear about different types of charities.

this is a good thing to give a poor people the charity

Of cours that is a good way to help needed people, It doesn' matter if the famouse people are looking for to appear in the magazine cover or in the newspaper, it realy doesn´t matter if the main objetive is reached, I mean help people.
