America's Sweetheart Jennifer Aniston Has Been Quietly Donating Millions To Help Cancer Patients, Poor Kids And More

Jennifer Aniston had made a name for herself as one of the most charitable celebrities. America's sweetheart truly has a very big heart.

When you're making way too much money every year what do you do with it? Most people blow it on themselves or their friends and try living as a luxurious life as they can.

However, there are those people who believe in giving back to society no matter how much money they make. It doesn't require a big pocket, it requires a big heart. Everyone knows that Jennifer Aniston makes millions of dollars every year but here's something most people don't know, she happens to be one of the most charitable people in the industry. Jennifer Aniston has made headlines several times in the past few years for giving to the people in need. She has made her life and is living comfortably so why not help others live comfortably too, right? According to LookToTheStars, which collates 'celebrity charity news and information', throughout her career, Aniston has supported several charity foundations and causes.

Although the actress has made a name for herself on screen starting from her role as Rachel Green in the hit sitcom 'Friends and in several movies like Marley & Me and We're The Millers, she has made quite a reputation for her philanthropic efforts. The 50-year-old actress has attached her name with several foundations like Stand Up To Cancer, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, the Luke Neuhedel Foundation, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.



 

In addition to these, she has also shown her support towards children's and youth charities such as Urban Arts Partnership, Friends of El Faro and Clothes Off Our Back, along with human rights charities like US Campaign for Burma, OmniPeace, AmeriCares, and Habitat for Humanity.

Aniston does not usually publicly speak about her charity works, she likes to keep it quite. There really is no point of publicizing the work that she does because the reason behind the donations is not to look good in the eyes of the people, it is to genuinely help the ones in need.



 

The actress has donated to several other foundations showing her support towards adoption, fostering, ALS, LGBT communities, civil rights, education, disaster relief, the creative arts, and many more. In 2008, Aniston helped St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with their 'Thanks & Giving' advertisement campaign. She also donated a sum of money and a lot of time to the organization that helped advance its research in cancer treatments for children. A couple of years later, Aniston was very active in providing relief to earthquake victims.



 

In addition to donating $500,000 of her own money to help the victims of the earthquake in 2010, she also participated in the 'Hope for Haiti Now' telethon, which raised $58 million for the victims. Later, in 2011, she purchased a piece of art to the tune of $450,000 for a charity that benefited Haiti. On several occasions, the actress has shown her love and support towards children and many of her donations go towards children's causes like helping them with their education and helping the children in orphanages find foster homes or be adopted.

Friends of El Faro, for example, is an organization that benefits the Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. Aniston collaborated with the One&Only Palmilla hotel in Mexico to create the Farita doll. The doll was crafted locally, and all the proceeds went to the charity.

She cares about making the lives of children better not just because they are kids and what they are going through is due to no fault of their own, but also because they are the future citizens of the world and education will help them understand the world better. It will help them make it a better place.

Jennifer Aniston is also an honorary board member of the Lili Claire Foundation, an organization that works to improve the lives of people with Williams Syndrome, autism, Down Syndrome, and similar disorders. The organization also works towards providing education and other necessary resources to family members of affected individuals. She is not the only former member of the Friends cast who is involved with this organization. Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox Arquette, and Matthew Perry are also honorary board members.



 

The 'Dumplin' actress's charity work also extends to the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) where she plays the role as an ambassador for the 'Key to the Cure' campaign. This campaign raises money for the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund for research, detection, and treatment of women’s cancers.
