Taylor Swift and the boy band One Direction have topped a list of the most charitable celebrities in 2013.

The “Love Story” hitmaker was named the most generous star for the second year in a row by bosses at DoSomething.org, topping the sixth annual Top 20 Celebs Gone Good list.

Her good deeds in the past 12 months include donating $100,000 to The Nashville Symphony and her impromptu performance of “Livin’ On A Prayer” with British royal Prince William at a fundraiser for homeless London youths.

British boy band One Direction came second having volunteered to work with U.K. charity Comic Relief in Ghana, while Harry Styles and Liam Payne also raised $800,000 for a cancer research organization.

Tragic film star Paul Walker was also included in the list – following his death in November, Universal Studios chiefs announced a portion of the “Fast & Furious 6″ DVD sales would be donated to Walker’s Reach Out WorldWide charity.

Other celebrities noted for their charitable efforts in 2013 include Carrie Underwood, for her fundraising for those affected by the Oklahoma tornado, and Justin Bieber, who raised $1 million for victims of the Philippine typhoon.
