VH1 and DoSomething.org Rank 'Top 20 Celebs Gone Good'

New Special with Exclusive Interviews Identifying Best Celebrity Do-Gooders Premieres on VH1 on Thursday, November 19th at 8 PM*

Voting Launches Today on CelebsGoneGood.com and VH1.com

NEW YORK, Oct. 16 -- Ever wonder who in Hollywood is pretending to Go Green for the photo-op and who really means it? VH1 has tapped DoSomething.org, the nation's largest not-for-profit for young people and cause, to help separate the stars that really care from those who just like to smile for the cameras in front of a cause-y logo.

By going to CelebsGoneGood.VH1.com or CelebsGoneGood.com, fans can vote for their favorite star to help determine 2009's Top 20 Celebs Gone Good from a list of 100 celebrities known for their charity work. Mega-stars of charity like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be up against big time activists like Chris Rock and David Arquette as well as new-comers like Pete Wentz and The Jonas Brothers.

"Top 20 Celebs Gone Good," premiering Thursday, November 19th at 8pm* on VH1, will boast original interviews with the ranked celebrities, comedians and cause-leaders.

"DoSomething.org has been running CelebsGoneGood.com as a fun blog about celebrities and cause," says DoSomething.org CEO and Chief Old Person, Nancy Lublin. "People really want to know what issues matter to their favorite stars. These days, having a cause is as important as having a stylist."

"What we love about DoSomething.org and their CelebsGoneGood.com property is that it's meaningful but still fun," says VH1 President Tom Calderone. "From the VH1 Save The Music Foundation to VH1 Classic's 'Rock Autism' campaign, we've got a long history of bringing fun into our successful pro-social causes. We know that our viewers and our online visitors are going to enjoy our partnership with DoSomething.org to salute celebrities gone good."

To vote and to see the full list of nominated celebrities, go to CelebsGoneGood.VH1.com or CelebsGoneGood.com.
