Taylor Swift Named Most Charitable Celebrity of 2012

by at . Comments

One of the best-selling artists of the past year, Taylor Swift didn't waste all her money on Match.com profiles. Far from it, in fact.

The 23-year old star was named by DoSomething.org as the top "celeb gone good" in 2012, donating more money to charity than any other famous person out there.

T. Swizzle leaped from #20 in 2011 to #1 this year mostly due to her $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame museum.

She was even recognized by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charitable efforts.

Rounding out the organization's top five best givers were: Miley Cyrus (who specializes in animal rescue causes, along with the Make-A-Wish Foundation); Channing Tatum; Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

Kim Kardashian failed to make the Top 20. But she did use Facebook a lot!
