Adam Lambert is back on tour, and back helping classrooms across America. What else would we expect from this American Idol who’s already helped raise over $300,000 for public schools?! That is not the work of a “runner-up,” y’all. Seriously.
Adam announced that he’ll once again team up with DonorsChoose.org to support music & arts programs in high-need public schools. He’ll ask thousands of concert goers during his summer Glam Nation tour to support projects posted by teachers on DonorsChoose.org as part of his Glam A Classroom campaign: www.donorschoose.org/GlamNation
Fans will be invited to send a text message to a unique number during or after each show to get more info from Adam about how to donate and win prizes. But anyone who gives to the campaign, fervent fan or not, will be eligible for prizes (details TBD).
I can’t thank my fans enough for getting involved with the Glam A Classroom campaign to provide much needed resources for public schools. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of amazing music and theater teachers, so I want to help foster the next Ansel Adams or American Idol.
Glam-ing classrooms seems to come naturally to many Lambert fans, be they “Glamberts,” “Glittizens,” or that sparkly sock Adam may have lost in the “Glittermat Laundry Room.” Last fall, after asking fans to give to DonorsChoose.org in lieu of gifts, over 2,000 donations were made from fans around the world – raising over $300,000 and counting. We’ve been blown away by the generosity and enthusiasm of Adam and his adopted “Glamily” so far – and we’re pretty sure the best is yet to come. (It’ll probably have on some fierce eyeliner when it does.)
