Hi, What does to lend 'personality' mean? For example 'an affluent person who lends his personality to charities all the time.'
He knows that because he is well-known, his attenting charities will attract people. So he lends (makes appearences, attends for free) his famous "personality" to charities.

(I'm not sure I'm clear)
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi pieanne, It isn't clear but gave me a hint, which is only affluent ,famous, popular etc. people have ability to lend their personalities to something. Am I right?
Yes, that's it! Emotion: smile Here, "personality" is the same as "aura", ""famousness"". Imagine Brad Pitt lending his personality to(attending) a neighbourhood meeting: that would attract crowds!
