'Tis the season to be charitable, and DoSomething.org recently revealed its annual Celebs Gone Good list, which recognizes big names who use their influence to incite societal change. Chance The Rapper dethroned Queen Bey of her number one spot this year, for his contributions to his hometown of Chicago, including cofounding SocialWorks, a foundation that helps empower youth, and raising more than $2 million for Chicago Public Schools.

NFL star turned activist Colin Kaepernick came in second for sparking the National Anthem protest movement across the NFL, as well as making a pledge to donate $1 million across charitable organization throughout the year, and Ariana Grande rounded out the top three for organizing the One Love Manchester concert honoring the victims of a May 22 terrorist attack at one of her concerts in Manchester, which killed more than 20 people and injured hundreds. The benefit raised $13 million.

Other names of note in the organization's 2017 list are Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Zendaya, Miley Cyrus, and, of course, 2016's topper, Beyonce. Check out the full list below.
