Who is Your Favorite Celebrity Philanthropist of 2013?

It’s that time of year for our 7th Annual Top Black Celebrity Philanthropists List! Who is your favorite celebrity do-gooder of 2013? Your celebrity choice could be included in the annual list that will be unveiled next month.

We’re proud to partner again with the Admiral Center, an organization that helps celebrities use their resources and influence to develop sustainable and impactful solutions to improve the lives of low-income people in America. With partners such as NBA stars Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade, the Admiral Center staff has the expertise to help celebrities build a philanthropic legacy that they can be proud of and to think about ways in which they can impact the most possible people and support solutions that last.

In addition to your favorite pick, we’d like to know: How has your celebrity’s philanthropic commitment impacted you personally? What have you learned from them? What issues would you like to see your favorite celebrity tackle? Which celebrity would you like to see be more active in their community?

Visit the survey to get started and in the meantime, view last year’s list for inspiration. You can also use Twitter and Facebook to submit nominations and to get the conversation started by using the hashtag #blackgivesback – nominations will be collected until Tuesday, December 10th at 11:59 pm EST.

Happy Thanksgiving!
