Leonardo DiCaprio Soft Heart For Charity Raised $38M To Fund Global Conservation
Leonardo DiCaprio has love for charity! While he is amassing wealth from his movies and investments, he is also busy thinking of making the world better. At a contemporary art auction, DiCaprio’s Foundation raised $38M to fund global conservation. The money was used to protect natural habitats and create sanctuaries to save endangered species from extinction.
The actor is the face of global conservation and has been at the forefront of awareness of the fight to preserve endangered species and natural habitats. With less than 3,200 tigers left in the wild, less than 10% of sharks and depletion of many other wild animals, there is need to take action.
The amount raised was made possible because DiCaprio is a committed environmentalist who not only called clients to bid but he spent time to ensure the fund was spent wisely.
DiCaprio has won accolades over the years with many awards to show for his hard work. Today, he is one of the most distinguished and easily recognized men on earth. With the actor on scene for over 29 years, there is no doubt that he has amassed a lot of money. The net worth of the actor is believed to be over $245 million.
