From the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation offering to match up to $1 million in donations made on Facebook, to Ed Sheeran traveling Liberia to film a short music video, to the cast of Love Actually and A$AP Ferg creating a limited edition t-shirts to raise money, there is no shortage of celebrities pulling out all stops to engage the American public.
