While some argue that celebrities are put on a pedestal, many stars have gone above and beyond to earn their accolades—and we're not just talking about doing their jobs well (although that's great, too!) In honor of Good Samaritan Day 2013, we want to take a look back at all of the celebs who have sprung into action during times of need.
