22. Mia Farrow
Actress Mia Farrow is also celebrated for her impressive and dedicated work with the United Nations Children's Fund. The Rosemary's Baby star is known not only for her impressive Hollywood career (which spans over five decades), and globetrotting humanitarian efforts, but also for her large family –– Farrow adopted 11 children, and she is mother to 15 total.

And if you ask her, she says her philanthropy and love for children are not unrelated: “I don’t know if you know anything about my family, but they are drawn from a large number of countries, and different cities,” she told The Telegraph in 2013. “Most of us are not related by blood, but by love, and the deepest commitment.

So when we hear of children, wherever they are – when there is suffering, they are members of our family.”
