Who’s The Most Charitable Celebrity of 2012?

I’m not sure how this list was compiled because it seems a little odd. DoSomething.org recently unveiled their annual Top 20 list of “Celebs Gone Good” and Taylor Swift is apparently the most giving in Hollywood. Not to discredit Swift’s generous donations, but is she really the No. 1 charitable celebrity out there? If she is, then the others really need to step up their do-gooding game.

The 23-year-old “Trouble” singer stands atop of the heap due to her $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum which is the largest sum ever donated to the organization. She’s also cited for all tremendous work for young people battling cancer and being the youngest person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work.

Others making the list include Carrie Underwood, Channing Tatum, Ben Affleck and Miley Cyrus. It’s interesting how Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez rank separately, while Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone and Jay-Z & Beyonce are grouped together. There are definitely a couple of surprises including Ian Somerhalder. Not that he doesn’t strike me as a giving person. It’s just you never hear much about his good deeds. Find out who the runner-up is and the rest of the Top 20 below.

  • André Dias

    He doesn’t make as much money as most of the others if you notice, but Ian Somerhalder is super pro-active. Specially when it comes to the environment.

  • Laurine

    Why’d they put Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield together and not Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber? Neither couple is married, like Beyonce and Jay-Z (that’s why it’s understandable to put them together.)
