Taylor Swift has topped another chart -- but this one has nothing to do with her albums.

DoSomething.org has named the 23-year-old singer as the most charitable celebrity of 2012, placing her in the No. 1 spot on its "Celebs Gone Good 2012" list.

The organization, which runs national cause campaigns for young people, lauded Swift for her work helping young people battling cancer, a $4 million donation she made to the Country Hall of Fame Museum and becoming youngest person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center, which honors those who "demonstrate commitment to social change."

Miley Cyrus came in second on the list, due to her support of organizations like the Save the Music Foundation and the Make-a-Wish Foundation, DoSomething.org said.

Channing Tatum, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber were third, fourth and fifth on the list, respectively.

Others who made the organization's "Celebs Gone Good" list this year include LeBron James, Selena Gomez, Ben Affleck, Demi Lovato, Ryan Seacrest and Jay-Z and Beyonce.
