Idol Gives Back
As of today, you can start making donations to "Idol Gives Back" on the official website, HERE. I've not yet decided how much I'm going to give, or how much I can afford to give for that matter, but I am going to donate something. Imagine if we all just gave $1.00... $20.00 provides a days worth of nutritious hot meals and snacks for 3 kids in a US feeding program. And, $50.00 will buy 5 nets or enough Malaria pills to save 100 kids from Malaria in Kenya. Anything and everything can make a difference.
The money raised will go to the Children's Defense Fund, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Make It Right, Malaria No More, Save The Children, and the Children's Health Fund.
This year's event, beginning at 7:30 PM on April 9th, will include an impressive roster of talent including Bono, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5, Heart, Gloria Estefan, Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forest Whitaker, Billy Crystal, Dane Cook, Kiefer Sutherland, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Jennifer Connolly, Elliott Yamin, Fantasia and Amy Adams.
