Jake Gyllenhaal's main squeeze, Taylor Swift, gets a nod for her flood-relief efforts in Tennessee, Alicia Keys gets props for her much-covered "Digital Death" campaign in support of Keep a Child Alive, and Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are recognized for their efforts to prevent child sex trafficking.
