It’s Justin Timberlake‘s birthday! Who thinks he’s dressed up all snazzy in a suit and tie for the big day? From his days in the “Mickey Mouse Club” to *NSYNC to his solo work, JT’s been followed by the limelight…but did you know that on top of having a great career, he’s been a great philanthropist?

+ Stand Up To Cancer

Justin (along with his wife, Jessica Biel) took part in the Stand Up To Cancer telethon last September. The event quickly raised more than $81 million! As Jessica shared, a child gets diagnosed with cancer every three and a half minutes. But Stand Up To Cancer is around to change that scary stat, and it’s an important org in the Timberlake-Biel household.

+ Environmentalism

You know Justin brought sexy back, but did you know he’s also bringing environmentalism back? The golf lover made it to the list of our 10 Sexy Environmentalists Just In Time For #EarthDay because when he opened his own golf course, he made the point of making sure it was super environmentally friendly. Helping the earth = sexy.

+ Autism Awareness

As a star of the 90s, it only made sense for Justin to team up with another 90s star, Kate Winslet, for her book, “The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism.” About 100 celebrities contributed a photo and quote for the book. All proceeds go to Kate’s Golden Hat Foundation, which is totally dedicated to autism awareness. Looking good, JT!
