9. Rihanna donated $1.75 million to a hospital after her grandmother passed away.
When Rih's grandmother 'Dolly' sadly passed away due to cancer in 2012, Rihanna decided to use the pain she was feeling to try to make a difference. The singer donated $1.75 million to the radiotherapy department, which is now called the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, to Queen Elizabeth hospital in her homeland of Barbados.
