Elton has done more than Taylor I'm sensing a bias metal treasure - MRRANDOM
No bias. I'm kinda fan of Elton John and not a fan of Taylor Swift. But she was named the most Charitable Celebrity of 2012 and 2013. However, I changed my mind and put her lower than him on my remix because he's been doing that for longer time. - Metal_Treasure
Charities: 54 (including the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the GRAMMY Foundation and Race to Erase MS)
Causes: 33 (including creative arts, mental challenges and substance abuse). - Metal_Treasure

They give a lot of money away to charity. For example, they donated $500,000 to the Obakki Foundation, an African charity that helped build a child-care centre in Cameroon. Another $50,000 went to the B.C. Children’s hospital. Also, in 2006 the group announced that 100% of all digital sales of the song “If Everyone Cared” would be donated to Amnesty International and International Children’s Awareness Canada.

"SHE'S OVERRATED AS HELL! HER FANBASE IS STUPID! WHY HAVE A BREAK UP SONG BE A VERY LOVED SONG? WHY BE SO STEREOTYPICAL?
