On Sunday Hollywood gave back to Meryl Streep for amazing acting with a third Oscar, and yesterday it was revealed she has been quietly giving to the community for years without anyone knowing. According to Forbes, her husband Don Gummer and her having been donating millions of dollars without fanfare. Forbes
said, “In 2010 alone, they gave away $2.13 million–about half of it to Vassar, but $100,000 to Oxfam America, and another $5,000 apiece to things like New York’s City Meals on Wheels and Coalition for the Homeless. They’re very giving to local charities in their Connecticut neighborhoods, and support museums in Boston and Illinois. Last year they even gave $200,000 to the National Women’s Museum in Alexandria, Virginia.” Yeah I love her even more than I did before. We need more superstars in the world like her and less like the you know whos?
