As Adam is getting ready to begin his first Glam Nation Tour this week, he is already thinking of others instead!
As you will read in his tweets below, Adam is looking for his fans to support their favorite charities in lieu of bringing HIM specific gifts.
His decision to have people donate to either donorschoose.org, or any charity of choice, is such a brilliant idea for all that are involved.
Plus, Adam seemed to be genuinely excited that his idea about donating, instead of bringing HIM gifts, was so warmly accepted.
If you are interested, you can click on ANY of the donorschoose.org links within this article, which is directly linked to our specific page, or you can read the comments that were left, on past posts, below that were written by two fellow Glamb’s regarding support for the Heifer Project.
The link goes direct to a page specifically made by one of our members, thank you for setting that up for those that are interested in donating!!
I think Adam would be proud to see his Glambs showing their love and support!!
~adamlambert~Been doing lots of thinking…Last year on the road I received so many thoughtful gifts from all of you. But I very quickly ran out o’ room
~adamlambert~Instead of giving me gifts, why not donate 2 donorschoose.org or other charity in my name? U can print a reciept 4 me and personalize it:)
~adamlambert~What are your thoughts?
~adamlambert~Yay I’m glad u all like the idea! I love reading your cards and seeing your drawings too, I’m just not going to be able to take them with me
~adamlambert~ Yes fan club and site is in the works…
***I am including 2 posts from our very own, Princessshakeitup and Farzana, that have started another great project for any of you that would like to donate!!

~OK FELLOW GLAMS…PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the video of the interview here Adam was asked about whether he accepts gifts and he stated that he would prefer that his fans make a charitable donation to a worthy cause and then give him the receipt. Great Idea from a GREAT guy, RIGHT!? Well, back at Christmas time, when I lived in the States, I would donate to a charity called the Heifer Project and they would buy animals for people in other countries who could use them to create a sustainable life for themselves. Most of the people I know already have everything they need so this seemed like a great idea and recipients loved getting a gift card saying that a goat had been shipped to Honduras in their name etc. etc. CAN YOU SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH THIS!?
In addition to individual animal gifts, they have something called an “Ark” that costs $5000 and includes all the animals in the program. There are over 600 of us GLAMS, right [I am proud to be #601] so if we each gave say, 10 dollars we could make this happen in Adam’s name and someone who is lucky enough to be going to his first GLAM NATION tour could present it to him on behalf of all of us who love him to thank him for all he has given US!!!
PLEASE respond and let me know if you might be interested!!! If you are, I will get this started! You can go to the Heifer Project International site an see for yourself what I am talking about…they have an EXCELLENT reputation as a charitable organization!!!! If someone else, who is more adept at this ‘link’ thing can put theirs here, that would be great too!
WHAT SAY MY FELLOW GLAMS!? CAN WE DO THIS FOR ADAM AND THE WORLD!?
My Sisters in Adam and I send each other links to You Tube Adam videos on Sunday and wish each other “Happy Sundays With Adam” so that is what I wish all of you!!!
Big Love from Princessshakeitup; Glam #601!!!

Oh! How I would love to be your assistant in the #1 scenario…I could pick you up after you faint with the screaming! I was a nurse in a “former life” so I know how to deal with others hysteria…not too sure about mine! LOL
Truly, guys, is anyone out there seeing the fabulous opportunity with “Adam’s Ark”? Let’s continue the love revolution he has started and forget the negative rumor mongers!
We, his dedicated fans, are the ones who can shine a light on the integrity and sincerity of this gifted performer!! In his KISS 108 interview he was asked about receiving fan gifts and his reply was to the effect that he would prefer his fans give to a charity and give him evidence that they have done so with a form of receipt. This would show appreciation for his concerts.
Now, the man has spoken!
I would love to show this man how much he means to me by giving him a gift that would have lasting meaning, wouldn’t you?
Personally, I think this reveals a sterling quality of Adam in that he remembers others and is considerate of their needs! (How else would he be – as reflected in his performances?)
Let’s give back to him by reflecting his goodness into the world. The Heifer Project – “Adam’s Ark” is a fabulous opportunity to provide economic assistance to thousands across the globe in his name. It only takes a few dollars to contribute to the cause, certainly, the amounts can be any you wish. The more people that contribute the larger the final benefit. For international fans, any currency is accepted per their web site.You can read about it all on:
Adam’s Ark….has a nice message for the world through your love dollars! Wouldn’t you like to be one of the people that puts a smile on his face? If this particular project doesn’t appeal to you, then please pick a charity and give generously along with all your fellow fans!
I believe Adam’s fans are one of a kind and we can demonstrate this abundantly to the negative elements that try to tear away at his unique character/talents.
I, for one, feel inspired by him. What about you? If you feel the same, then join the fans that support “Adam’s Ark.” His personality and talents have inspired me to elaborate my zeal for him in this post! Can you feel the love?
