Actor, director and producer, Denzel Washington is well known for his philanthropic work and he has only added to that notoriety by recently making a generous donation to the L.A.-based charity, Save Africa’s Children.

Washington gave $1 million to the nonprofit that helps orphans and children who are suffering from AIDS throughout Africa and the Caribbean. With Washington’s generous donation, Save Africa’s Children will be able to expand their reach and provide support to schools, day care centers and feeding programs.
