Elton John UK's Most Generous Celeb

Elton John's not just a multi-multi-millionaire -- he's also a charitable one.  On The Sunday Times' annual "Rich List," he's named as the U.K.'s most generous celebrity, donating just under $36 million to charity last year.

The Times reports Elton gave away what amounts to 8.9% of his overall wealth, mostly to his AIDS Foundations in the UK and the U.S.  Other charitable British celebs include Coldplay, who gave away $5.5 million via their charitable foundation, and Eric Clapton donated just over $2 million, raised from his Crossroads Guitar Festival, to the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, which treats drug and alcohol addiction.

Also on the list are George Harrison's widow and son, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, who gave $1.6 million to charity.
