+ United Nations Names Leonardo DiCaprio Messenger of Peace
Posted on: September 16, 2014 by Amy Filed Under: Articles Comments: No Comments

A huge congratulations to Leo, so proud of him!

Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped by the United Nations to be honored with the title of Messenger of Peace, and the actor has been asked to speak on Sept. 23 at the U.N. Climate Summit to address the topic of climate change, the international organization announced on Tuesday.

“It’s an honor to accept the role of UN Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community,” said DiCaprio in a statement. “I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history – it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”

Climate change may be the political topic most closely associated with The Wolf of Wall Street actor, who has regularly made headlines for his commitments to addressing the issue.

In February, DiCaprio pledged a donation of $3 million to marine conservation and followed with an additional $7 million pledge several months later. On Sept 21, two days before the U.N. Climate Summit in New York, the Clinton foundation will honor the actor for his committed environmentalism during a Manhattan gala event featuring Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton.

Other Hollywood industry notables that have been bestowed the Messenger of Peace title by the U.N. in recent years include Edward Norton, Michael Douglas, Charlize Theron, George Clooney and Stevie Wonder.

“United Nations Messengers of Peace/Goodwill Ambassadors are distinguished individuals, carefully selected from the fields of art, literature, science, entertainment, sports or other fields of public life, who have agreed to help focus worldwide attention on the work of the United Nations,” reads the statement explaining the selection process on the U.N. site.

+ Clinton foundation honors Leonardo DiCaprio

The Clintons will honor Leonardo DiCaprio later this month for the actor’s environmental work, the Clinton Global Initiative announced.

Along with DiCaprio, the president of Kosovo and others will be honorees at the foundation’s 10th annual meeting, which will open Sept. 21 with the Clinton Global Citizen Awards, the organization said.

“Collaboration and turning ideas into action are core to the ethos of the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation,” Chelsea Clinton told The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the event Wednesday. “Hollywood, likewise, relies on collaboration to bring creative visions to life and has been an excellent partner to the foundation across a number of our efforts.”

DiCaprio, who has been praised by Secretary of State John Kerry for his work on climate awareness, recently narrated a short film promoting the need for a carbon tax.

Former President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton are all expected to attend the Manhattan event, which will be hosted by NBC’s Seth Meyers. President Barack Obama is also expected to attend, as are Matt Damon and philanthropist Melinda Gates.

Presenting the awards will be former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Eva Longoria and music producer Randy Jackson. The evening will also have musical performances by a number of artists, including The Roots, Jason Mraz and Aloe Blacc.

+ Leo makes the biggest donation to the ALS Association

Celebrity ice bucket challenge videos have filled news feeds across America for weeks. Fortunately, at least a few of those willing public figures aren’t just talking the good deed talk — they’re opening their thick wallets to combat ALS, too.

Actors Leonardo DiCaprio and David Spade have donated more to the ALS Association than any other celebrities, according to the organization. ALSA confirmed to The Huffington Post that each star donated $100,000 to fight the neurodegenerative disease that affects about 30,000 Americans at any given time.

“People have responded with such generosity it is truly remarkable and we couldn’t be more appreciative,” Barbara Newhouse, president and CEO of the association, said in a statement released Aug. 29. “These donations will truly help fuel our fight against ALS in ways that were never before possible.”

DiCaprio and Spade are two of four individuals who gave gifts of $100,000, the association said. John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile U.S., and Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Cruise Lines, also gave gifts equaling that amount.

+ Leonardo DiCaprio Raises $25 Million For The Environment
Posted on: July 23, 2014 by Amy Filed Under: Articles, Charaties Comments: No Comments

It is always encouraging to hear when celebrities raise money for the good of our planet. The Leonardo DiCaprio foundation has announced that it raised a whopping $25 million for environmental causes at a charity auction in France.

“Not since the age of the dinosaurs have so many species of plants and animals become extinct in such a short period of time,” DiCaprio said in a speech, as quoted by La Prensa. ”The good news is there are solutions to these massive problems. Efforts like tonight will start addressing them.”

And the effort certainly helped. Guests paid between $7,000 and $130,000 to attend the event, and attendees included Joan Collins and Marion Cotillard. The auction, which included 500 guests, began with a bidding on a Harley Davidson motorcycle owned by DiCaprio and signed by him as well as Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. A Picasso sold for $1 million (paid by South African tycoon Patrice Motsepe), and Bono’s guitar also sold for $1 million. And then, Russian-born billionaire Len Blavatnik must have really loved the environment (or at least the art piece) to offer $6 million for a sculpture by British artist Damien Hirst.

DiCaprio created his foundation in 1998 in collaboration with environmental experts and leaders, in order to support the conservation of forests and oceans, protect biodiversity, and try to limit the effects of climate change. The actor is known for contributing large amounts to help the planet; in 2013, he donated a $3 million grant to the WWF for the conservation of tigers in Nepal.
