It’s always refreshing to hear stories about celebrities who use their wealth and prestige to make a positive impact on the lives of those around them. Organizations like the Make A Wish Foundation exist to arrange interactions between the children they serve and the celebrities the kids want to meet, and many celebrities have done good work through those organizations.
However, some celebs go above and beyond, and focus on doing good deeds throughout their daily life. Here are a few cool stories about stars who prove that helping others never goes out of style.
This story about Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford proves you’re never too old to sweep in to someone’s rescue. Even though he’s currently in his seventies, Ford has piloted search and rescue missions near his home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming twice in one year.
First, he rescued a 13-year-old Boy Scout who got lost in Yellowstone National Park, then later that year came to the aid of two hikers who were suffering from altitude sickness and dehydration. Because he flew his own helicopter as part of these volunteer search and rescue missions and didn’t accept any payment in return, it’s estimated he saved the local fire department thousands of dollars.
