Some people believe famous people’s support towards international aid organizations draws the attention to problems, while others think celebrities make the problems less important.
Discuss both views and give your opinion.
In recent years, many celebrities become actively involved in helping international aids organizations. Some people think it is a great way to encourage more people to involve in the problem-solving. However, others just see the support as a tool to draw more attention on the celebrities themselves.
To be fair, a celebrity’s involvement in charity-related activities does catch a wider range of attention. They use a variety of media platform to publicize what they promote to support. As a result, their fans or sponsoring companies are likely to respond to the problems with money or other forms of support.
Of course, some people can argue that these famous people may not genuinely mean to help solve problems. Some celebrities only appear in the press conference and give a glamorous speech about why they decide to do. But after the publicity event, some never go back or follow up with the helping progress. Their fans probably would not bother asking for the progress either. After all, charity is just a tool to better these well-known figures’ images.
Personally speaking, I would stand up for those celebrities who take international aids seriously. Some of them go to poor countries regularly and offer help in person while others keep donating because they sincerely care, which encourages more people to follow their footsteps to offer assistance. As for those who just show up to look good, they do not deserve our respect. In a word, we should not forget the real heroes among them just because of some clowns.
