Country artists are champions of charities. They do not hesitate to give their time and money to causes that affect everyone from a soldier in Iraq to a stray dog in your neighborhood. They are funding cancer research, helping children learn to read, protecting small farms, and saving bald eagles. There’s nothing they can’t do. So, to celebrate and honor them, here are ten artists who are making a difference.

I'm still am so thankful that so many people came out to support shelter pets at the #MuttNationMarch. We turned Nashville pink! Some of you have asked how to help, even if you're not in Nashville. When you donate at the link in my bio you could win a trip to hang out & fix up an animal shelter with me. #loveashelterpet
Miranda Lambert founded the MuttNation Foundation in 2009 with a mission to battle animal suffering by supporting adoption initiatives and no-kill shelters across the country. In January of 2014, MuttNation donated $253,660 to shelters in all 50 states. Miranda’s passion project has now raised a total of $2.2 million for pups in need.
