Taylor Swift Named Most Charitable Celebrity of 2013
Nonprofit organization, DoSomething.org has released their annual list of "Top 20 Celebs Gone Good,” and Taylor Swift has topped this year’s list.
Swift, who also topped 2012’s list, donated $100,000 in order to help save the Nashville Symphony, which was under the threat of bankruptcy. She also headlined an event for Centerpoint, which helps young people experiencing homelessness.
"The country-pop star has topped our chart for the second year in a row. And with good reason too, y'all. Swift recently celebrated her 24th birthday by GIVING gifts instead of getting," the site stated about the famous songstress. "She donated $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony, which has faced extreme financial difficulties this year. Swift also headlined an event benefiting Centrepoint, an org working to help young people experiencing homelessness. It was hosted by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. (Her good-doing even transcends continents!)"
Coming in at number two was the singer's former love interest Harry Styles and his group, One Direction, for their fundraising efforts on cancer research. Beyonce was in third place and late Fast And Furious star, Paul Walker was fourth.
DoSomething.org is the largest not-for-profit in the U.S. and is an organization that promotes social change for young people.
