These stars shine a bright light on key health-related causes

Celebrities draw attention — no two ways about it. Often we scratch our heads in disbelief when someone like Kim Kardashian trends on Twitter or Facebook.

Among the latest big news out of that camp is how she wants to spend an outrageous amount of money on a home renovation.

Why do people care about things like this, when there are far more important issues in our world?

The celebrities we might look to instead are the ones who use their clout and take the time to support an important issue or cause. You may not recognize all of them, because they’re not all A-listers. But these luminaries are doing what they can to tackle important issues when it comes to our collective health.
