Yesterday, unbeknownst to many, actor Leonardo DiCaprio was in France doing what he does best: raising money for the environment. 

At his fourth annual fundraising gala in St. Tropez, DiCaprio raised $30 million for his foundation, People Magazine reports

Take Action: Stand With Climate Change Refugees Around the World

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation was founded in 1998 “with the mission of protecting the world’s last wild places,” according to its website. It has a following of over 50 million people, and has given over $80 million to environmental causes

DiCaprio wasn’t the only big name at the auction. Also in attendance were Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, and Tom Hanks, among others. Singer Madonna dropped in for a surprise performance.

But perhaps the night’s biggest prize? A dinner with DiCaprio and Winslet to raise funds for a UK mother suffering from cancer

We’d go all in for that.
