One Direction has come just shy of topping the annual DoSomething.com list for the year's Most Charitable Stars.
The British boy band are runners-up this year behind country star Taylor Swift, who is receiving the top honor for the second year in a row. The charity site is applauding One Direction for partnering with BBC's Comic Relief to volunteer in Ghana. Later in the year, Harry Styles and Liam Payne teamed up to raise an impressive $800,000 for a U.K.-based cancer research group using the site Prizeo.com.
Coming in behind the boy band on this year's list is Beyonce, who used her starpower to call attention to women's rights with the "Chime For Change" concert.
Other charitable musicians in the Top 20 include rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Justin Bieber.
The late Paul Walker came in at number four this year. The actor lost his life in a car crash the same day as hosting a charity event to raise money for typhoon victims in the Philippines.
