Sandra has donated millions to various charities, often in order to help with the relief following a natural disaster.
Among other sizeable donations to various organizations, she has given at least $4 million to the American Red Cross, donated $1 million to relief efforts following the 2010 Haiti earthquake and another $1 million to relief efforts after the 2011 earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
The Gravity star was named ‘Favorite Humanitarian’ at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards for her donations towards rebuilding a New Orleans high school following Hurricane Katrina.
The previous year the school inducted her into its ‘Hall of Fame’ in a ceremony in the school auditorium, which Sandra attended.
