Celebrities, particularly female actresses, have long been mocked for speaking out on issues that they cared about. And besides, the need for "political superstars" to "stay in their lane" is a statement heard around many a dinner party. Luckily, it's also a concept that a slew of female superstars have completely dismissed - we think the world might be a little better as a result.

Many celebrities are one-trick ponies who excel at sports, acting, music or making sex films. But a small number go outside their acknowledged field of competence, flourishing in fields you'd never imagine.

However, there are just a few superstars who have talents that extend way past the lurid tales in the vacuous pages of trashy periodicals. They are good at much more than we realize.   We're not referring to sloppy foundation management or 'guest spots' at seasonal toy drives. These people are serious about giving, and now they're making a real difference in the lives of others all over the world.

We invited our readers to use their Google skills to find these people, and we offered a prize for the finest entry.
