Latino Stars Who Have a Heart

George Lopez


When it comes to helping out, George Lopez doesn’t joke around. The Mexican-American comic has championed a number of causes, including earthquake relief for victims of the 2010 quake. Lopez was among the first celebrities to start raising funds for Haiti, setting up and hosting the benefit concert “Help Haiti with George Lopez”. The event featured comedians, musicians, and celebrities, with all the proceeds going to earthquake relief. In addition, George created The Lopez Foundation, helping underprivileged children, and has become a spokesperson for the National Kidney Foundation. This move followed a kidney transplant George received from his wife in 2005.
