Beyoncé, Lin-Manuel Miranda And Taylor Swift Named The Most Charitable Celebrities Of 2016

Who helps the world?

Beyoncé.

The Queen B was declared the most charitable celebrity of 2016 on activism website DoSomething.org’s Celebs Gone Good list Tuesday.

Beyoncé, 35, has done a lot to raise awareness of several causes this year — including Black Lives Matter, the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Mich., and gender equality.

At the MTV VMAs in August, Beyoncé brought out a group of moms, the "Mothers of the Movement," whose sons were killed at the hands of police. She also featured a few of the mothers in her "Lemonade" video.

The "Formation" singer also made a powerful performance in support of Black Lives Matter during Super Bowl 50. Beyoncé raised more than $82,000 for the Flint water crisis after she asked fans to donate when purchasing tickets to her tour.

Also on DoSomething's list of do-gooders were "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, at No. 2, and Taylor Swift in the No. 3 spot.

Miranda made a powerful speech about doing good while accepting a Tony award earlier this year. The 36-year-old reminded viewers that "love is love" after the tragic shooting at the Pulse nightclub, an LGBT-friendly establishment in Orlando.

The Broadway star also worked with singer Jennifer Lopez on the song "Love Make the World Go Round," donating all of its proceeds to the Hispanic Federation's Proyecto Somos Orlando initiative.

Swift dropped a few notches after claiming the list's top spot in each of the past four years.

Swift donated more than $1 million to help flood victims in Louisiana and regularly visits young fans in the hospital.

Demi Lovato, Shailene Woodley, John Cena and Miley Cyrus also made the list.
