Adam Lambert asked for a simple gift this year for his birthday, clean water for people in developing nations. And it looks like his brigade of “Glamberts” are stepping up – in a big way – to support their favorite glam-rocker.
After Lambert announced his affiliation with charity:water, he did so with an initial goal of raising $29,000 for the organization by asking fans to donate to the cause rather than send him birthday gifts.
“I am so excited to be a part of charity:water and able to give back to those in need. Join me in helping with donations for such a great cause,” commented Lambert, “My ‘golden birthday’ is on Jan 29th where I will be turning 29!!!! I would LOVE if you would help me donate to this cause as it would be the best birthday gift I could ask for.”
Underestimating his influence, Lambert fans have donated more than $60,000 in just two days, surpassing his initial goal and compelling him to announce a new goal of $290,000 for charity: water.
“Ok New goal: 290,000 by the 29th”, wrote Lambert, “Let’s give people in need clean water!”
Fans who donate have their name, donation amount and a comment added to Adam’s charity:water page and since the project will be marked on Google Maps, donors will be able to see exactly where their donation went by GPS coordinates and photos.
