DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization that aims to harness teen's "awesome energy" and unleash it on causes they care about, has announced the 20 Most Charitable Celebrities of 2012 and Taylor Swift topped the list!
While the singer was snagging headlines and trophies for her diary-like music, she was also donating serious chunks of cash to important organizations (she gave $4 million to the Country Hall of Fame Museum). Swift also spent hours vising with young cancer victims and became the youngest person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work.
Lady Gaga ranked at number four, thanks in no small part to her Born This Way Foundation, which combats bullying and promotes acceptance of the LGBT community. Gaga also pledged $1 million to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Rounding out the top 5 was Justin Bieber. His Believe Charity Drive raised over $1 million for charity, while he also works with Pencils of Promise to build schools in third-world countries, visits young cancer patients and donated $100,000 so homeless kids could go to school.
