Many celebrities donate money to worthy causes, especially in light of disasters or when there’s a strong need for more funding. However, most of them will soak in the limelight and graciously accept all the extra fame that comes with the good deed. That said, not everyone wants to be recognized for their philanthropy. One such case would Sandra Bullock; a woman that is already beloved by many, and has secretly been donating money to charities and people in need
The Humane Society of Ventura County
The HSVC, or the Humane Society of Ventura County, cares for all sorts of animals, big or small, young or old. In particular, during November 2018, amid the aftermath of the destructive California fires, many animals were in need of assistance and needed new homes. It was here that Bullock made headlines when she donated $100,000 dollars to The Humane Society of Ventura County, California. The HSVC has reported that such a donation makes them deeply humbled and it will be put to good use helping to provide 24/7 care for the scores of horses, bulls, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and other pets evacuated from the fires. While this donation from Bullock did make headlines, other donations went under the radar.
The Humane Society of Ventura County was deeply humbled today by a $100,000 donation from Sandra Bullock and family. Our efforts for rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires had caught her attention and her team reached out to the shelter to show their support.

Following on from the HSVC donation after the 2018 California wildfires, Bullock also donated $400,000 to the Red Cross. In a statement, she said that everyone on this Earth is family, whether they be human, furry, or feathered, and it’s important that everyone looks out for each other. The tragedy that fell upon California was unspeakable but this amazing donation would have made things that little bit easier.
Among wildfires, there are a plethora of other natural disasters that Bullock has donated to. One which everyone remembers is Haiti. The 2010 Earthquakes that ripped through the country were horrific. Port-au-Prince was one of the worst affected areas and being an LEDC (less economically developed country) they couldn’t afford the rebuilding costs themselves. Many charities chipped in, including Doctors Without Borders, which Bullock donated a whopping $1 million to in an attempt to help rebuild the impoverished country that was destroyed so badly.
