KeKe Palmer is such a class act. The teen sensation turns 17 today is has issued a request to her fans to donate to her charity where she will donate 100% of the proceeds to bringing African villages clean water. On the donation site KeKe explains why:
I have been so blessed in my life to have great parents, wonderful friends, and fantastic fans!
To be honest I never even imagined that somewhere in the world kids are dying because they do not have clean drinking water. I knew that food was a problem; kids not having enough to eat, but I just assumed that everyone at least had access to water; water is free right?
I was wrong, there are places in the world where water is unsafe to drink, a friend of mine brought this to my attention saying he was going to try and help by donating money from his birthday, and I have a birthday coming up too and thought that would be a great idea!
I will be 17 on Aug 26th, I am asking friends and family instead of buying me a gift please send $17 dollars to MyCharityWater.org/KekePalmer I am asking my fans to donate only $10 (only if you can spare), and unlike a lot of charities 100% of all money collected goes straight to the community. I will be able to provide video to show all who donated where their dollars actually went, how amazing is that to donate money to help children and then watch how your contribution has saved their lives!
I have been working with charities that help children starting way back when I was in Akeelah and The Bee, but I have never done anything like this. I was just so moved by My Charity Water and wanted to help bring clean water to children, water should be clean and available to all people at least that is how I feel.
Please join me in my goal to raise $10,000 that will provide clean water to 500 people.
