Adam Lambert asks fans to donate for clean water
adamlambert Ok New goal: $290,000 by the 29th!!! Let’s give people in need clean water!!!
We’re now over $278,000 (Feb. 8, 9:00 PM EST)
Adam has a brand new partnership with the amazing non-profit, charity: water. The charity: water organization was formed four years ago with the goal to help bring clean, safe drinking water to developing nations. To date they’ve funded 3,811 water projects across the world, providing water for 1,742,331 people in 17 countries. In the four years since inception, charity: water also has raised more than $22 million to run their organization, launch educational campaigns and fund their water projects…
That’s why we’d like to encourage you to make a simple donation instead of sending Adam birthday gifts.
Watch this video. Please donate what you can afford, and even if you can’t donate, please help spread the word through Twitter, Facebook and email. You will literally be saving lives. Thanks!!

Hubpages – Adam Lambert Pulls an Oprah “Yes, Adam Lambert, like Oprah, is, in his small way, a hero. As evidenced by one night’s outpouring of compassion for those less fortunate on the heels of the holiday season in bad economic times, as we watch our leaders spew hate and blame and spite at one another publicly, Adam Lambert inspires love, peace, tolerance and generosity towards others.”
Examiner Matt Carter – Adam Lambert fans come out for charity support, birthday celebration “So how is it working so far? Let’s just say that it is more than a little bit successful. Adam fans not only raised the goal in the matter of a few short hours, but it is (as of this writing) almost at $45,000 raised.”
