Lady Gaga and Bieber – the most generous stars in 2011

source : Philanthropy.com

According to the Dosomething.org website, singers Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber were the most charitable stars of 2011. In any case, that is the perception of American adolescents, the target audience of this website devoted to social change and teenagers. Actor Matt Damon was ranked sixth and was rewarded for his commitment to water.org. Matt Damon’s NGO develops solutions, particularly microloan-based, for improving access to drinking water and sanitation in poor countries.

Lady Gaga was voted for the second year in a row, but the young singer Justin Bieber leaped from tenth to second place. While the former is especially involved in the fight for rights for homosexuals, against Aids and, more recently, against bullying, Bieber has put a lot of effort into the Pencils of Promise association, which is building schools in developing countries.
