When it comes to building houses for those in need, no one does it like former President Jimmy Carter!

So of course when Garth Brooks wanted to help others he decided to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity!

He joined the hundreds of volunteers who have built over 100 homes in the Port-au-Prince area, hardest hit by the big Haiti earthquake.

People just think that because it's out of the news, the problem is over, but many are still living without proper homes!

The CEO for Habitat for Humanity said:

Lea Michele was recently at a charity event for Habitat for Humanity.

Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity were unveiling their Valspar Hands for Habitat campaign.

The program auctions off paint handprints of different celebrities to benefit Habitat for Humanity's disaster response programs.

Lea, an ambassador for the campaign, said:

"I am honored to be partnering with Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity to help support those who need our support following natural disasters to get on the pathway to recovery. Everyone deserves a safe and secure place to live and it's a great feeling to know that through Valspar Hands for Habitat, we are bringing hope and comfort to families in need."

We're so glad she's giving up her valuable time to help others.

We're also glad that they got Lea as an ambassador because her star power should definitely help to raise some serious cash for a great organization.

Way to go, Lea!

Go Blue!

Before beginning spring training in a few weeks, the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of their time off to give back to the city that supports them at every home game.

Members of the team (both past and present) put on their team colors and hopped in the Dodgers Community Caravan on Tuesday for a 2-day tour of the town, which sent them to support several charities like the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, the Mayberry Elementary School, the Los Angeles Regional Food Back and Five Acres.

Elin Nordegren mansion structure

Remember that house $12 million mansion Tiger Wood's ex-wife demolished in Florida last week?

It turns out Elin Nordegren didn't do it just because she could afford to — she did it because it was the affordable thing to do!

The property was built in the 1920s and, as a result, the structure wasn't safe to face hurricanes. The construction manager told sources:

William Shatner Saves A Family From Homelessness…With His Kidney Stone?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFitnessCharity

William Shatner kidney stone

William Shatner is one painfully kind man.

The Sh*t My Dad Says actor has saved a family from homelessness by selling his kidney stone (ouch)!

The veteran Hollywood star managed to convince bosses at gambling website GoldenPalace.com to pay $21,000 for the stone in 2005.

With the help of his Boston Legal castmates, he took the profits and made a total donation of $84,000 to housing charity Habitat for Humanity in the U.S.

The charity used the donated money to build a house for a family who lost their home in Hurricane Katrina.

Shatner is proud of his creative charitable efforts too, revealing:

"I have a picture of a lovely family with three kids, living in a home that my kidney stone built."

What an awesome idea, Mr. Shatner! We applaud you're charity work!

Amazing.
