On this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, the buzz wasn’t all about the famous faces and beautiful dresses. There was also a generous charity initiative going on, courtesy of Moët & Chandon, as part of their second annual “Toast for a Cause” program. The company behind the official champagne of the Golden Globes enlisted the help of celebrities to give back to those in need.

In “Toast for a Cause,” celebrities are asked to make a champagne toast to their favorite charity – in return, Moët & Chandon donates $1,000 to that charity on their behalf. It’s the only initiative of its kind conducted on an award show red carpet, and this year, celebs were bubbling at the chance to participate.

See? Award shows aren’t always about the stars giving each other a pat on the back! Sometimes, they’re about giving back to those who need it most.
