Taylor Swift Named "Most Charitable Celebrity"

Congratulation to Taylor Swift! Swift was named "Most Charitable Celebrity," by DoSomething.org

 

Her album may have been Red, but Taylor Swift spent the year putting nonprofits in the black: According to DoSomething.org, the country-pop star was the most charitable celebrity of the year.

We’ve examined Taylor’s philanthropy before as a way to peek inside her soul, but it’s worth running down her efforts again: a whopping $4 million given to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, $600,000 donated for flood relief in Iowa and Tennessee, and countless more time and money spent for music education and anti-bullying initiatives. No wonder the Kennedys gave her an award even after she dumped their grandson.

Miley Cyrus was second on the list from DoSomething.org.

The other states raising their wage floors are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont.

The federal minimum wage remains $7.25 per hour, with no cost-of-living adjustment, and prevails in 31 states that do not mandate a higher state minimum wage. The last raise to the federal minimum came in 2009, after a series of increases signed into law by President George W. Bush.
