Conservative commentator Glenn Beck has been singled out as the top celebrity fundraiser by the Charity Folks website. The Fox News host reportedly raised more than $1 million for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which gives financial assistance to wounded soldiers, and scholarships to children of special-operations personnel killed in battle.

The Huffington Post notes that much of that total was likely raised from Beck's "Rally to Restore Honor" in late August.

Leading up to the rally, Beck auctioned off a $75,000 helicopter tour over New York City followed by dinner at the radio personality's Connecticut home.
