Why Celebrities Posting Good/Charitable Deeds Is a Double-Edged Sword

It is both narcissistic & selfless.

Double-Edged Sword

So, the question becomes why is it celebrated when random people do good and sneered at when celebrities do good?

Narcissistic or Selfless?

But the results are important.

As more celebrities give large sums of money to a crisis, to the more publicity it gets, the more we care, and the more, ultimately, we donate.

I submit that publicly posting that you have done a good deed is both selfish AND selfless and that we should never stop publicizing good deeds and donations to those who need them most.
