DoSomething.org Names Top 20 Most Charitable Celebrities of 2012

…aaaaaand it shouldn’t come as any surprise (to anyone who doesn’t actually check out which charities celebrities are actively involved in each year) that Taylor Swift made the top of the list.

Whoa! Did that sound snarky?

o.O

I have nothing against Swift. Honestly. She’s worked with various cancer-related organizations and I think that’s fantastic.

I just don’t understand why donating $4 million to the Country Hall of Fame Museum is seen as a significant charitable act when stars like…

Lady Gaga and Demi Lovato were recognized for their anti-bullying campaigns.

George Takei was recognized for his humanitarian work and being a huge advocate for the LGBT community.

Selena Gomez was applauded for her annual UNICEF charity concert.

Jay-Z and Beyonce received nods for all their work with underprivileged students, AIDS patients, and the homeless.

Ian Somerhalder was noted for his namesake foundation that works to educate people about the planet, his support of The Trevor Project, and for being the most ridiculously good-looking person on the planet helping shine light on shelter animals.

Ah, well. They’re all amazing souls who’ve helped make someone’s life a little brighter in 2012!

Check out the full list over at DoSomething.org.

Is there any celebrity you’d add to it?
