Jennifer Aniston Has Been Quietly Donating Millions To Help Cancer Patients, Poor Kids And More

The former Friends star, Jennifer Aniston, has been playing Secret Santa to various charities for many years now and we barely got wind of it. 

Although Jennifer Aniston has been well known for her support and association with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for which she did commercials, and Stand Up to Cancer which she hosted, the former Friends star has been involved in numerous other foundations and charities.

 The 50-year-old actress has been contributing to charities such as Friends of El Faro, a charity to help provide food, education, and shelter to the children of Casa Hogar Sion and the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, an organisation that funds pediatric research.

She has also donated $500,000 to organisations such as Doctors Without Borders, Partners in Health and AmeriCares that provided relief to the victims of the Haiti earthquake. She also helped raise $58 million through the “Hope for Haiti” telethon.

 



 

 

Aniston also helped create the Farita doll, designed and crafted by local artisans, all the proceeds of which were donated to the Friends of El Faro. She even purchased an art piece at a Haitian Charity Event worth $450,000 to contribute to the Haitian relief efforts.

In 2007, Aniston was awarded the GLAAD Vanguard Award for her contributions to spread awareness about the LGBT community and promote gay rights.

 



 

 

Staying true to the spirit of Christmas and channeling their inner Chandler, Aniston and her ex-husband Justin Theroux sent out Christmas cards to their friends stating that a donation had been made in the names to St. Jude and Best Friends Animal Society.
