A Message from DonorsChoose

***UPDATE – WE’RE ACKNOWLEDGED IN THE PROJECT OF THE DAY*** Message from DonorsChoose.org: The staff of DonorsChoose.org walked into their Monday morning surprised and thrilled at the update on the Adam Lambert Fan Group leaderboard—over $30,000! Our staff was amazed at how much money all of you raised over the weekend and we are all so grateful! However our office manager was not surprised. As a rabid Adam fan, she knew you guys would rock it! Keep up the great work! We can’t wait to see what kind of national press will be coming our way; http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/DonorschooseOrg-1034734.html

Project of the day: KARMA, the Glambs International Fan Club and several other groups have given to this project: Music On the Inside Out. This project only has 7 days left to get funded with more than $10,000 needed. It would be AMAZING to see this 5th classroom in Kent, Washington (where 65% of the children are eligible for free and reduced lunch based on poverty level) participate in a school band! In the teacher’s words: “I would like to see students at the Fifth Grade level have the opportunity to try a band instrument during the school day without the financial restrictions of State, and Local budgets. My students need 42 band instruments, including bells, trombones, flutes, trumpets, and clarinets.” So what do you think groups? Think we can do it? Go to your group’s page (to make sure they get credit ?) and search for this project and donate to it!

Quote of the day: Carole from Wilmington, DE: “I gave to this project because I believe the voice of music is one of the key elements of an emotionally well-rounded life, starting even before birth and extending throughout one’s lifetime. There is nothing in life that touches the heart and impacts the total being more than the gift of music. If we didn’t know that before, Adam Lambert has taught us so in spades. He has chosen a magnificent charity. Thank you, Adam, for the way you have touched and continue to touch us all.”

Glambs International has raised nearly $1,700 as of this writing, with 41 donors, and we’re currently sitting in 5th place on the leader board. Visit our Glambs Donor Page to see the participating school projects and to donate.

If you haven’t yet donated, please consider doing so, even if it’s a small amount. Any amount is welcome. Many thanks from Adam, the Kids, and from Glambs International!!!

  1. That’s not too bad considering one of the sites, I think it’s the one in the lead, has about 90 000 members. I went to that site last night and that is what I read. So, per capita, we are doing very well!!

    • Well. I was so overwhelmed reading the different projects. I actually funded a whole project. “Drama Queens and Kings” in rural Texas. Ha. I don’t even have a job right now and no incoming income. But I love the arts and this class of 5th graders is now going to get scripts to perform plays. And that’s good for my soul.

      Anybody know if the winning group consists of how many donors? or how much is raised?

    That is so awesome! I’m glad we are raising so much. I am sure Adam is pleased also. By the way, did you receive my updated pics of the Cleveland show last night? It was so awesome! Adam was so hot that I was sweating profusely. I haven’t been able to settle down since I received his autographs last including the one on my Adam Lambert purse. It was the best concert ever for me!!

    OMG!!!!! I luv Adam and I think he is a VERY sweet man to want to give to charity instead of accepting gifts for himself.

  4. Adam is one special person.He has a heart of gold.And love to spread his love to everyone he meets.He going to make a lot of chance in time to come.So by him setting up this support and raise money .Is just one way he can make a change in the world.I think there going be a lot more in time.He has done a lot of things in his life and been around the world and seen a lot of thing.Adam has the power to change thing and I know he will. He is very special person and god know it.That is why he is were he is. I think god has big plans for in the future. I know he has change my life for me.And a lot of others. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH ADAM.You are truly loved.

  5. I always knew that Adam would head up something like this and what a great idea it is!

  6. I’m wishing I could give more than the $25 I already gave. I’ll try.

    • Grambert, remember its not the amount you gave but the fact you thought enough of the
      charity and Adam to give $25.00. $25.00 is very generous. So many people today would be
      grateful to have $1.00. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS. Just think, if everyone gave $1.00
      how that would add up. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER, NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.
      I don’t know what it is about our society that we think we never do enough or never give
      enough but I am here to say “YOU GAVE PLENTY’. God Bless and have a GREAT DAY.

    wait a minute…just asking…did adam assign the glambs this charity? like, how exactly did it start???

    • No, the Glalmbs are not the only fan group involved. He was receiving so many ‘gifts’ from fans that he suggested they give to charity instead. Then he got involved in this fundraising. Adam is the type of person who would likely have done this later and I am glad he is doing it sooner. So many celebrities wait till they are past 40 to think of others. He also designed the silver pendant which is selling for $150 dollars and the profits are part of ‘music cares’.. other musicians have also designed something.

      If you click on the donorschoose.org site you will see a list of the other groups contributing and how much they have given so far.

  8. I am sitting here at my computer in awe of what i have been reading this morning about
    DONORSCHOOSE.ORG. I have never heard of this site or many other things until Adam Lambert
    came on the scene a few short months ago. Adams positive energy is certainly SHINING BRIGHT.
    Whatever the “it” factor is, Adam has IT. ADAM YOUR FANS LOVE YOU.

  9. I am so happy to see that you highlighted the charity I sent money to. Since I live in Seattle I wanted to give close to home because my daughter went through school here and I’m proud to live here. But also was thrilled to be able to do this in Adam’s name. How extraordinary.

  10. As a former music teacher and someone who has received funding for projects on DonorsChoose in the past, I donated to the Music On the Inside Out project several months ago, all the while fearing it would fail because of its size. You all are awesome! I remember crying joyful tears when my first project actually was funded last year. How joyous will this band teacher feel if Adam’s fans pull off this miracle? And more importantly, how will these children be lifted, to know someone believes and cares this much. How wonderful of Adam to encourage all these generous hearts to give to needy kids!

  11. This is so great! I’m a teacher (and Adam fan) myself – a 4th grade class in the New York City public schools. I have a proposal up if anybody would like to donate! Here is the link: http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=306549

    Thanks so much if you can help – any little bit – it will make a big difference to my class. And I’m sure Adam would be happy too 🙂
