Philanthropic personalities

  • Fans mourn George Michael as charities praise his philanthropy video George Michael was a larger than life personality but his philanthropy was, at his request, quite the opposite. Over the course of his life, he quietly gave everything from a $10,000 tip to a barmaid for nursing school to millions of pounds to U.K. charities like the Terrance Higgins AIDS trust and Childline. RIP Mr. Michael. (12/27/16)
