Who Are The Most Charitable Music Stars?
Macca isn't just a genius for melodies, but also supports a number of charitable causes through his philanthropic work. As far back as 1979 he organised a Concert for the People of Kumpuchea, and when playing a personal concert for the wife of a wealthy banker, donated his $1 million dollar fee to charity. He is involved with animal rights group PETA, raises money for breast cancer in memory of ex-wife Linda, and alongside daughter Stella (pictured) is a patron of the Vegetarian Society.
