The World’s Best Celebrity Humanitarian

orphancart.jpgWHO is the best celebrity humanitarian? It is a rhetorical question. Keep your guesses to yourself. We have the answer.

Given the chatter from the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, who cut up his dog collar on the telly, the Opposition’s housing spokesman Grant Shapps spending Christmas Eve sleeping rough and Tony Blair’s No. 10 career, celebrity humanitarians are our religious and political leaders.

But none of them feature on the Reuters poll. The world’s top celebrity humanitarian is…Angelina Jolie, pipping Mr G9 himself, Bono, to the title.

The rest are: 3. Desmond Tutu; 4. Bill Gates; 5. Bill Clinton; 6. Jimmy Carter; 7. Kofi Annan; 8. Mia Farrow; 9. Don Cheadle (actor); 10. Brad Pitt.

That’s four actors, one pop star, one tycoon, one religious leader and three politicians.

To the respondents of the Reuters poll they are all celebrities, like Kerry Katona, Osama Bin Laden and Mel Gibson – all are eligible for an appearance on a chatshow, TV gameshow or pro-celebrity ice dancing contest.

Or they could think big – how about a TV presenting job..?
