They work if celebrities "walk the walk" and don't just preach.

I think if you're in a privileged or fortunate position, then you should be doing as much as your conscience dictates to help those less fortunate than you.

I think in some cases it can be helpful for celebrities to speak up, giving exposure to little known issues, for example.

The recent "bucket challenge" videos sure made a lot more people aware of ALS.

On the other hand it can seem like a cynical publicity stunt or even create the kind of "cause overload" that develops into a backlash or a jaded attitude toward "do-gooders."
