Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber are just a few of the stars to make DoSomething.org’s Top 20 List of Celebs that have “gone good” this year.
Taylor Swift nabbed the top spot, being recognized for being the YOUNGEST person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work. Not to mention she also donated 4 million (the largest sum yet!) to the Country Hall of Fame Museum.
Miley Cyrus was named this year’s runner-up — spending her big 2-0 promoting Saving Spot! Rescue, a non-profit that is dedicated to finding dogs from high-kill shelters a home. The actress/singer also went barefoot earlier this year in support of TOMS’ One Day Without Shoes challenge. Cyrus has helped raise awareness for several other charities like: Save The Music Foundation, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Naturally the Biebs also hit the top 5 — especially after the proceeds from his Believe Charity Drive raised over $1 million for charity. Not to mention the 18-year-old also works with Pencils of Promise to build schools in third-world countries in addition to donating $100,000 so homeless kids could go to school.
At number 14 is Hollywood power duo Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. The Amazing Spider-Man Co-stars are being recognized for their creativity in giving back. When the couple was spotted by paparazzi at a NYC restaurant and instead of running for cover, the stars walked out holding up signs that supported two charities: the Worldwide Orphans Foundation and Gilda’s Club.
Demi Lovato ranked at number 16. The X-Factor judge is being honored for her involvement in several anti-bullying campaigns, including “Mean Stinks” and Love is Louder, which helps people dealing with negative self-image, depression, and bullying.
And of course, Selena comes in at number 9 — sited for her massive contributions to charity. Not only does the 20-year-old work at children’s hospitals across the country but her second-annual UNICEF charity concert raised $200,000 for kids in Africa!
