15 Most Charitable Celebrities

3. Akon

Though most only know him for his music, and his rapping career— Akon has been doing brilliant things in the background. The Senegal born musician not only founded the Konfidence foundation, which aims to help underprivileged African youth, but also helped cofound the foundation Akon Lighting Africa, whose goal is to bring light to over 600 million Africans left in darkness.



Akon wisely noted that most African charities fail, and the ones that succeed usually involve actual African people in the process. He thinks that will make a large difference in bringing the solar powered energy into the community of the people. Anon seems to be attempting to implement the age old premise of teaching a man to fish so he’s fed for a lifetime.
