10 Times We Were Thankful for Celebrities This Year

By TheBlast Staff

It's been a rough year in Hollywood. Tinseltown has been rife with tragic scandal after tragic scandal but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are the 10 times we were thankful for celebrities this year.

Selena Gomez's New Kidney

So much to be thankful for here. Not only are we all glad Selena Gomez is healthy after receiving a life-saving kidney transplant but we're thankful for the generosity of actress Francia Raisa, who donated her own organ to the singer.


Demi Lovato Comes Through for Fans

Fans who can't afford tickets to Demi Lovato's upcoming tour were treated by the star to complimentary tickets. After cash-strapped Lovatics were tweeting Demi saying they couldn't afford her show, Demi immediately dispatched her team to make sure they were taken care of.

Blue Ivy Became a Big Sister

In June King Jay and Queen Bey welcomed twins Sir and Rumi, making Blue Ivy the coolest big sister ever. The Carter family debuted the new little bundles in the most spectacular Insta post. Who isn't thankful for babies?!

Nicki Minaj Pays Student Loans

In May Nicki Minaj gave us all the feels when she offered to get her fans out of debt. A Twitter user tweeted Minaj asking her to pay off their student loan and boy was the response epic. Minaj shelled out thousands of dollars for loans, books and room/board for fans who sent her verifiable proof they had straight A's.

'Mean Girls' Day

The cast of 'Mean Girls' got together this year for October 3 (AKA 'Mean Girls' Day) and made a video to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. Grool!

The KarJenners donated $500,000 to Houston hurricane relief and on top of that, Kim vowed to donate to the victims of yet another hurricane in Puerto Rico.

Fenty Beauty hit the stores earlier this year and included one of the most inclusive shade ranges around. Women of all colors can likely find a match in Ri Ri's 40 shade foundation line.

Ellen & Oprah at the Supermarket

Sometimes we're simply thankful for a good laugh. Ellen DeGeneres took Oprah Winfrey grocery shopping and it's seriously funnier than you could possibly imagine.

Bethenny Frankel Charters Planes

Skinny Girl mogul Bethenny Frankel chartered a bunch of jets filled to the brim with food, medical supplies, and water to bring aid to Puerto Rico. The planes returned with the sick and infirmed who couldn't get treatment on the hurricane-ravaged island.

Puppy Power

**Liev Schreiber **was a guest on Live! With Kelly & Ryan following Hurricane Harvey and the show was featuring adoptable dogs who were displaced from the storm. The actor couldn't resist and FaceTime'd his ex, Naomi Watts (who he co-parents with), to make sure she was onboard with adopting two of the little ones on the spot.
