Do Hollywood Stars Support Causes or Cults?

By Shane and Sia Barbi, Founders,

Celebrities have the kindest hearts when it comes to supporting charities, gladly offering their names and fame to raise millions for causes.  What's unfortunate, however, is that many stars don't have the time or desire to research the charities they endorse.  Result:  they lend credibility to dishonest organizations that don't follow through with their promises.  One of the worse offenders?  Animal Rights Organizations.  As animal activists, we are shocked to see big-name celebrities endorsing big-name animal rights organizations known for fraudulent claims, misappropriation of funds and even worse -- supporting the belief that "killing is saving."
