I, for one, am not surprised.

The Giving Back Fund recently released their Giving Back 30 for 2007, a list of the top 30 celebrities who, according to public records, made the largest donations that year. At the top of the list was Oprah Winfrey, who donated a whopping $50,200,000 last year to education, health care and other humanitarian needs.

I know Oprahs’ got her haters (Hello, meat industry! Hello, Roseanne!) but I love the woman (though maybe not her TV show so much…) and I think she really does try to make this world a more sustainable place. She’s one of the most influential people for a good reason, and I think she often uses that position for good causes, too.

Other notables on the list include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (naturally), Adam Sandler, and… Rush Limbaugh? You can see the whole list here.
