I love when a celebrity actually uses their fame for a good cause, don’t you?
A few months ago, Adam Lambert requested that for his 29th birthday (on January 29th) he wanted people to help raise $29,000 for charity: water, a campaign designed to help bring clean, safe drinking water to developing nations.
Fortunately, the fans were listening: not only was he able to reach that goal in under 6 hours, but the fans begged for more! Tweeters requested he raise the goal to $290,000, and together they were able to raise $60,000 in just two days. Now, according to his twitter account, as of 24 hours ago received $323,255— which will help bring water to over 16,000 people. And that’s only after three months!
I suppose Lambert underestimated the powerful influence he has on his fans, but we’re certainly impressed by his continuous, selfless efforts to help those in need.
The campaign has been closed, but you can still donate to the cause by clicking here.
