Taylor Swift: Still the Most Charitable Celebrity Alive!

by at .

Haters are gonna hate, hate, hate, hate.

We just don't know why.

For the third year in a row, Taylor Swift has proven herself to be a rather awesome human being: According to DoSomething.org, the singer is the most charitable celebrity on the planet.

As part of Taylor’s promotion for her smash hit album, “1989,” she donated all proceeds from “Welcome to New York” to New York City Public Schools.

Back in the spring, meanwhile, Swift visited young cancer-stricken patients in multiple hospitals.

Slotting in at number-two behind Swift is Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox, who became a voice for the LGBT community after starring on Netflix's acclaimed program.

Rounding out the top five on this list are Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Emma Watson.
