Bear Grylls: Survivalist and Philanthropist

bear grylls mud sweat tearsMost people know Bear Grylls from the Discovery Channel show Man vs. Wild, but he’s also involved in many philanthropic organizations, and many of his adventures have had a philanthropic purpose. Among the more interesting of his philanthropic endeavors is, perhaps, his twenty-two miles of rowing along the Thames, naked, and in a homemade bathtub boat, to raise funds for a friend who lost his legs in a climbing accident.

Other organizations that Bear Grylls currently supports, as listed on his website’s philanthropy page, include:

Tusk Trust UK,
UK Scouts,
Rescue Global,
Global Angels,
ONE International,
Comic Relief,
RNLI Lifeboats,
Hope & Homes for Children,
