In the spirit of the upcoming Do Something Awards, the folks at DoSomething.org decided to highlight celebrities “caught doing good.” To find Hollywood do-gooders, the Do Something crew monitored consumer interest across 50k+ online sources to determine which celeb is the most charitable, how consumers reacted to their charitable work, and where their fan base is the most active online. Here’s what they discovered. Be sure to check out our interviews with some of the industry’s most charitable stars.
