American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert has taken on a cause close to his heart: classrooms in need of equipment to perform everyday tasks.
Partnering with DonorsChoose.org for the site's Fan Group competition, Lambert is asking his fans to make donations toward requests from school teachers for equipment ranging from pencils to computers.
"My fans have been so amazing in their support that I would love for them to contribute to something I believe in," he says in the video. "Every kid deserves a great education and access to the materials and experiences that make it possible. I'm so thrilled to team up with DonorsChoose.org and encourage my fans to support arts and music projects in classrooms."
Nearly $50,000 has been raised through the Fan Group competition since it started on August 20. Signed photos of Lambert will be awarded to his group's 10 most generous donors. The competition runs through September 20. To donate as part of Lambert's group, click here.
