People Magazine recently named its Sexiest Man Alive – and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know it’s Channing Tatum. We won’t argue with that choice (and neither would you if you saw Magic Mike). His dance moves say it all, not to mention he’s one of our fav celebs gone good.
While we’ve got nothing but love for Tatum, we’ve got a sexy award of own for a few guys that are pretty smokin’ in their own right. (There’s nothing sexier than a man helping others.)
Seth Maxwell. The 24-year-old is working to provide a fresh drink of water to people in developing communities. The Thirst Project has completed 788 freshwater development projects across the globe.
Van Jones. We love a man that fights for the average American. Armed with his Rebuild the Dream platform and that killer smile, there’s no way he can lose.
Matt Flannery. The CEO and co-founder of Kiva, a microfinance org. that creates business opportunities for low-income individuals, began developing the site as a side project. (Read: SUPER smart and insightful.)
Danny Mendoza. His project, Together We Rise, helps prepare foster kids for success after they age out of the system. (Cue collective “awww.”)
Charles Best. Talk about gettin’ inspired over lunch. Literally. Best thought up the idea for DonorsChoose.org over lunch with colleagues. The online charity makes it easy for anyone aka YOU to help students in need.
George Weiner. One of DoSomething’s finest, as we’re sure you noticed in the photo above. Our CTO is not only a tech whiz and lover of not-for-profits, but he’s got other Chief Technology Officers doin’ good. CTOs for Good is a group that focuses on mobilization and engagement. He’s also our sexiest man gone good! (Not that we would EVER play favorites.)
Premal Shah. The President of Kiva helped breathe life into the Kiva concept and grow it to scale. (Love this. And his dashing good looks.)
Ben Rattray. We’re sure you’ve filled out a Change.org petition at some point or another. Well, you can thank Rattray for that! He’s the founder of the online petition site.
Paul Ryan. The Republican nominee for Vice President in the past election sure is easy on the eyes. And according to The New York Times , his role as House Budget Committee chairman could prove clutch in helping to avoid a devastating fall off the fiscal cliff.
Paul Rieckhoff. He founded Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), a nonprofit working to improve the lives of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families. A former serviceman himself, we’ve got a special place in hearts for Rieckhoff.
Ami Dar. Ever look for a job, volunteer opportunity, or internship that makes a real difference? Thanks to Dar you can find all of those opportunities in one place: Idealist.org. We <3 a man that does good and enables others to do so too.
