The holiday season is about more than just pigging out on tasty treats (guilty), scoring great gifts and enjoying time off work. It's also a time to give back to the community. And this year, a lot of celebrities are doing just that.
Putting their careers on hold, celebs spread holiday cheer through charity. Katie Couric, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber and Kate Middleton are among the gracious group of celebs giving back.
We decided to feature their compassion in the gallery below to show that not all celebrities are thinking only about themselves -- they're making a difference in a big way.
