Taylor Swift Crowned 2012’s Most Charitable
DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization that aims to harness teen’s “awesome energy” and unleash it on causes they care about, has announced the20 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.

Coming in at number two was Miley Cyrus, no stranger to headlines either. But she garnered all this DoSomething.org ink because she dedicated the last 365 days to promoting Saving Spot! Rescue, a non-profit that is dedicated to finding dogs from high-kill shelters a home. She also embraced TOMS’ One Day Without Shoes challenge and helped raise awareness for Save The Music Foundation, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Channing Tatum was not only one of ETonline’s Entertainers of the Year, but also the most charitable man on DoSomething.org’s list at number three. The Sexiest Man Alive helped raise millions for the Rainforest Foundation back in April. And along with wife, the newly-pregnant Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Channing supports Angels for Animals and sponsored abused farm animals through Gentle Barn
