3 Celebrities Using Their Platform for Good
It is no secret that celebrities have a huge amount of influence over what we think, do and buy. That's why it's super awesome when people who have the ability to sway the minds and actions of millions of people use their platform for good. We'd like to give a big high-five to these 3 Celebrities who are using their platform for good, right now:
Kristen Bell is widely known for her roles on Veronica Mars, House of Lies and The Good Place (did you know that she also was the voice of Gossip Girl and Anna from Frozen?) and her adorable marriage to Dax Shepard. These accolades have built her quite the following on her social media accounts: @kristenanniebell has 3.3 Million followers on Instagram and 2.12 Million followers on Twitter @IMKristenBell Awesomely, she uses her personal accounts to spread the word about great causes like mental health, reproductive rights, the crisis in Syria crisis, education, politics and so.much.more.
Mark Ruffalo is best known for his roles as Marvel's The Hulk and in award-winning films like Spotlight and Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind. He is also a badass activist. Mark is a long-time supporter of the anti-fracking movement and has founded 2 non-profits: Water Defense, which has the mission of using technology and public engagement to inform people about what is in their water, hold water polluters accountable, and keep waterways and drinking water sources free from contamination and industrial degradation and The Solutions Project, which is working to accelerate a transition to 100% clean energy. @MarkRuffalo has 3.19 Million followers on Twitter where he tweets almost exclusively about important global issues like the environment, politics and women's rights.
Adrian Grenier is best known for his role as playboy movie star on HBO's Entourage. IRL Grenier is a passionate voice for environmental issues. He has been a longtime supporter of environmental causes big and small - I've seen him at events hosted by Global Green and Slow Food NYC over the years and he has always been socially vocal about environmental issues. Recently, it seems he has upped his activism by co-founding The Lonely Whale Foundation (check out their #stopsucking campaign) and being recently appointed as an UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador 👏👏👏
