Taylor Swift Named The Best Person Ever Most Charitable Celebrity

Filed under: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift Charitable Celebrity

There’s no stopping Swifty!

But at least this is about her doing good and not her dating life.

Taylor Swift was named the No. 1 "celeb gone good" by DoSomething.org for 2012.

You go, gurl!

Our little songbird won the honorable title thanks to her $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum.

Harry Styles' main squeeze was also the youngest person ever to receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center

We’re sure her connection to Conor Kennedy had nothing to do with it.

LOLz!

Taylor might always seem like a charitable star, but this year she jumped from 20th last year to the top spot.

Simply AH-Mazing!

We love hearing about celebs who are giving back!

Check out the rest of the top ten charitable celebs below!

Ludacris was proud to see so many young people pitching in to help out, saying:

“I'm proud to be a part of the Epic Book Drive and to see that over 100,000 young people participated. By collecting such a huge number of books for those in need, teens around the country showed they haven't forgotten about New Orleans and the Recovery School District.”
