Which celebrity gave the most to charity in 2011

I read an article this morning that was very interesting that showed the top reported celebrity donations in 2011.  It included celebs like Jerry Seinfeld, and Hugh Hefner.

This information is all public information so that is how this is based. I am sure some donors give anonymously without receiving publicity.

The queen of celebrity giving was actress Jami Gertz (born October 28, 1965) is an American actress. Gertz is known for her early roles in the films Sixteen Candles,CrossroadsThe Lost BoysLess Than Zero, the 1980s TV series Square Pegs with Sarah Jessica Parker, and 1996’s Twister, as well as for her role as Judy Miller in the CBS sitcom Still Standing.

She also had guest appearances in Entourage and Modern Family recently.

Do celebrities do enough to raise money for charities?
