We love ALL charities and causes, but when it comes to naming your organization, they can be pretty cool...or pretty lame. We take a look at some of the celeb founded causes and pick our favorite names!
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher- DNA
How cool is this name? It’s their initials but they also use the tagline “Freedom is in our DNA.” This foundation raises awareness about child sex slavery, and helps rehabilitate innocent victims.
Christina Applegate- Right Action for Women
We love this name because the organization promotes action. They educate women about what it means to be at risk for breast. It also provides aid to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer and do not have insurance or the financial flexibility to cover the high costs associated with breast screenings.
Oprah Winfrey- Angel Network
Oprah is always giving. She is such an angel, so what a perfect name for her foundation.
The Angel Network has awarded funds to hundreds of organizations throughout the United States and in more than 30 countries around the world. There is nothing the Angel Network hasn’t accomplished.
Edward Norton- Crowdrise
Ed just wanted the crowd to rise in support of their favorite causes. So the name is perfect for that. This site was created to promote volunteering, and raising money for charity. But the main point was to have the most fun in the world while doing it.
Jane Kaczmarek- Clothes off your Back
This name couldn’t be more appropriate. The foundation hosts charity auctions showcasing today's hottest celebrity fashions. Items are put up for bid to the public with proceeds going to benefit children's charities.
Paul Newman- Hole in the wall gang fund
We laughed out loud at this name. They partner with camps in the United States and abroad, and the provide children with cancer and other serious illnesses. They also provide year-round support to their families and health care providers.
Jewel- Give A Drop
Give a drop of clean water. How appropriate? This campaign created from Jewel’s Project Clean Water. They help to provide clean water on a global scale.
Lance Armstrong- Live Strong
Living strong is everyone’s goal, so this name couldn’t be more fitting for those fighting cancer. This organization strives to improve the lives of those affected by cancer, by raising funds for research, and bringing awareness to this horrible disease.
Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw- Neighbors Keeper
This country couple seeks to strengthen communities by contributing to diverse projects with primary emphasis on children's initiatives.
Leonardo Dicaprio- Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation
Yes, it’s just his name. But what a name it is! Leo strives to bring awareness to environmental issues by participating with such organizations as the Natural Resources Defense Council.
