9. Shania Twain - $27.5 Million

Shania Twain‘s using the release of her first album in 15 years to give back.

The pop-country superstar launched Shania Kids Can in 2010, a Canadian-registered charity that works with elementary schools across North America to provide underprivileged children with academic, nutritional, therapeutic and extra-curricular support.

She launched the organization in 2010 and much of its mission is inspired by Shania’s own difficult childhood. The superstar grew up in extreme poverty in the small town of Timmons in Ontario, Canada.

Fans can pre-order a wide-ranging variety of Now album packages to benefit the charity, which includes autographed memorabilia, access to an intimate album pre-listening party, the custom motorcycle used in her Las Vegas show and even dinner with Shania in Nashville, among other goodies. Prices for the packages range from $40 to $100,000, so there’s something for everyone.

The album will be released September 29th. Browse and pre-order here.
