Taylor Swift Tops DoSomething.org's 'Top 20 Celebs Gone Good' List

Taylor Swift isn’t just topping the music charts — she’s also topping charitable lists too!

The 23-year-old musician took the number one spot on DoSomething.org’s Top 20 Celebs Gone Good list, which highlights the impact of celebrities reaching an audience with their cause.

This year alone, Taylor received the Ripple of Hope Award and donated $4 million to the Country Hall of Fame Museum.

The criteria stipulated giving money wasn’t enough to count as creating impact; instead, a celebrity needed to take an action others could emulate, like writing articles, building houses, or founding an organization. The second annual “Fan Favorite,” as voted on by fans on Facebook, is Demi Lovato.

Miley Cyrus, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield and more made the list, too. Check them all out inside…

    there are many people that arent listed on here because they helped others without the publicity because they didnt need it to prove they are a good person. taylor always publicizes when she does something for charities

  • anonymous


    not always. there was that one time she visited a children’s hospital and didn’t want it to be a publicised thing. the only reason people knew about it was a parent posting online about what happened.

    but yes. i agree about many doing good deeds without publicity.

    Taylor actually doesn’t publicize when she does things for charity – the media finds out and blows it up.

  • mel

    Is the Country Music Hall of Fame a charity??

    some celebrities make more than others. obviously I admire everyone on this list, but to compare by money that’s donated is not truly fair (in my views). I think percentage of income is much more fair.

Writing 500 to 1000 wordarticles is where the real work in promoting your web site come in to play. :
