When people look back over the life of Elizabeth Taylor, images of Cleopatra and Hollywood glamour come to mind first. Of course many people know she was also a great humanitarian - one of the first celebrities to really put a voice to the causes she believed in!

In fact, she was a recipient of the USO Merit Award for all of her amazing volunteer efforts.
