Country/Pop singer Taylor Swift topped the list followed by British boy band One Direction. Beyoncé came in at number three for her “Chime For Change” charity concert. The late Paul Walker was number four thanks to his work with his natural disasters relief network Reach Out Worldwide.

Breakout duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were recognized at number five for their single “Same Love” which the organization says starting “a national conversation and challenged the Hip Hop community (and the rest of the world) to adopt a culture of acceptance.”

TDE emcee Kendrick Lamar (19) was credited for helping raise funds for Superstorm Sandy relief. Part-time rhymer Kevin Durant’s (18) $1 million donation to assist Oklahoma tornado victims led him to be the only professional athlete on the list.

“For the first time, 50 percent of the list is age 30 or younger. This rising generation is using their money and star power for good,” stated DoSomething CMO Naomi Hirabayashi.
