Day 276- Leonardo DiCaprio

DiCaprio may have been "King of the World," but he should be dubbed "King of Hearts" for his compassion.

Few people have had such a successful career at a still-young age as actor Leonardo DiCaprio. It was only in 1997 that DiCaprio shot to total stardom with his leading role in the Oscar phenom, “Titanic.”  Since then, he has increasingly captivated audiences through his stellar performances in such films as “The Departed,” “Blood Diamond,” and “Revolutionary Road.”

DiCaprio has been well-known of late as a staunch environmentalist. His Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation promotes awareness of global warming, sustainability, biodiversity, the preservation of the world’s oceans, and other environmentally-friendly causes.

According to Leo’s official Web site, he has just partnered with the World Wildlife Fund to save tigers living in the wild, which have become very endangered.

Early this year, DiCaprio donated $1 million to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund in support of “long-term recovery efforts.”

During and since the filming of “Blood Diamond,” DiCaprio has become involved in helping the SOS Children’s Villages, as several of these children were featured in the movie.

To be honest, I couldn’t remember whether or not I had written to/about Leo DiCaprio. I got the idea while watching “The Man in the Iron Mask” (right now!). I’m really glad the idea came to me.

Please keep spreading the word about spina bifida, to anyone and everyone who will listen! Your advocacy is the greatest asset to my humble campaign, and I appreciate all you can do to help out.

Love,

Laurita ♥
