Selena Gomez has added a special T-Shirt to her ‘Dream Out Loud’ line sold at KMart - this unique tee will benefit UNICEF and their ‘Trick or Treat‘ program.
Sel posted the photos of the new shirt to her D.O.L. Facebook page and had this to say:
Hey Everyone– I hope your enjoying the line and some cool back to school outfits for the fall. I have a new collectible tee shirt that you can add to your collection and at the same time you help save kids lives all over the world. When you buy my Dream Out Loud “Trick or Treat for UNICEF” tee from September 15th t…o October 31st, 2010 K-Mart will donate 100% of the net proceeds to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. As you know UNICEF is an amazing organization that helps kids with food, water, shelter, and medicine. So I hope you’ll show your support by wearing your tee and spreading the word. Together we can make this the best Trick or Treat for UNICEF ever.
Selena has been an official Ambassador for UNICEF since 2009.
This shirt is really cute and it’s for a great cause! Go get one!

“Something I wanted to do at the end of this amazing year and especially on my birthday was give back to something I really believe in, which is education,” says Swift. “The schools that I went to and the amazing people I got to learn from really turned me into who I am, and I wanted to give back.”
The generous gift will be used to at schools Swift has either attended or worked with in the past and will buy books, pay teacher’s salaries and pay for other educational programs in need. One more reason to love Sweetheart Swift.

Amber Riley (Mercedes), Mark Salling (Puck) and Cory Montieth (Finn) of the hit show Glee were on hand on December 3rd in New York City to participate in Carol-oke, a contest sponsored by retailers TJ Maxx and Marshalls to benefit Toys for Tots. The cast had a great time and Montieth had fun antlers on to show his holiday spirit.
Carol-oke is a contest being run by Marshalls & TJ Maxx. You can still play along! All you have to do is go to Marshalls and T.J. Maxx’s holiday YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/jointhecarolers, watch one of the two unique carols, then upload a video of you singing one of them! For each video $1 will be donated toward Toys for Tots, to purchase gifts for a child in need. If that’s not enough incentive, by uploading a video you are also eligible to win a $5,000 shopping spree. Tis the season to do something charitable!
I love Glee – I am a Gleek.

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has stepped up to the plate to support The Trevor Project. The nationwide non-profit organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth provides counseling and a round-the-clock suicide prevention hotline for teens in crisis. By donating time and money, Radcliffe has become an essential part of the group’s program of support and help for teens and young people who are having trouble dealing with sexual orientation issues.
“I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work,” said Daniel Radcliffe. “It’s extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it’s truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. I deeply hope my support can raise the organization’s visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline’s highly trained counselors and Trevor’s many other resources. It’s vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.”
The actor is committed to ‘setting a meaningful example’ and hopes to do more in the future with the organization. This is a bold step for a young actor – to come out and put his money to a cause that is polarizing for so many people and truly embrace diversity. Bravo Daniel!

As his 21st birthday approaches, (August 24th,) Rupert Grint fans wanted to do something special to commemorate his day. His UK-based fan site RupertGrint.org got together with him and his family to chose a charity to support, the one to sponsor in his honor: Teenage Cancer Trust.
Every day in the UK, up to 6 teenagers or young adults (between the ages of 13 and 24) will find out they have cancer that is approximately 2,100 new cases a year. These young people, in the midst of their already difficult journey to adulthood, suddenly find themselves faced with a possible life-threatening illness and very often receiving treatment in inappropriate facilities with inadequate support options. Teenage Cancer Trust grew by chance, out of the eagerness of a group of women to organise a fashion show to fund a children’s intensive care heart unit at Guy’s Hospital, London. The fashion show was a resounding success and the women, high on the adrenalin of triumph, were ready to take on the world. Little did they know – they had!… The women went on to raise funds to build the very first TCT unit at the Middlesex Hospital in London in 1990.”
Go to the Just Giving Page to give directly or find out about setting up a fundraiser, bake sale, walk or any other creative way to help out a great cause.
Donate what you can, either money or time to help out this cause and give Rupert a great 21st birthday present.

Kyle XY star Matt Dallas attended a fundraiser in Hollywood for Tap Project, Unicef’s program to provide clean water to children without access. The event was hosted by The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation and Dallas looked cute as ever with those sparkling clear eyes. I will miss Kyle XY.
