We all love them; they entertain us and brighten up our days. But how much do they love the less fortunate; let’s find out. Below are the 7 most philanthropic celebrities on the planet today:

1. Taylor Swift

The 24 year old is the queen of the pack for the 2nd year in a row. You see, besides performing with Bon Jovi and Prince William to raise funds for the homeless, she also donated $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony on her 24th birthday. What a sweet gesture on her big day!

What these boys did was just beautiful having released their single Red Nose Day that raised in excess of 3.2 million which will go a long way in aiding those in Africa and the United Kingdom that are living in abject poverty. In addition, Harry and Liam also raised $800,000 for cancer research.
