Derek Jeter, Shaq take over trading firm for charity (12 images)

Derek Jeter and Shaquille O'Neil were among the celebrities to participate in trading firm BTIG's annual Charity Day on May 2.

Since 2003, BTIG invites celebrities to join its traders to raise money for the charity of their choice. On Charity Day, when a client calls the firm a celebrity will answer instead and a portion of that trade will go to charity.

To date, the event has raised more than $40 million to hundreds of charities worldwide.
