Celebrity couples have become more and more prevalent as of late, combining their riches and power into one entity and benefiting their careers and interests even more.

Of course, some are more giving than others and those that really give back and make a difference should be recognized for their charitable contributions. Below are some of the celebrity couples who have truly made the world a better place by giving back to people who truly need the money.
