Kris Allen to perform at The Trevor Project’s Trevor Live event in Los Angeles on December 4 2011

[Update: According to Kris Allen’s official street team, Little Pawns, Kris will be performing Imagine backed by choir at the event! I’ve always wanted to hear a full Imagine performance from Kris ever since he covered it at the Little Kids Rock Benefit in 2010, so this is super great news to me! \o/]

Update on Kris Allen’s mustache campaign to raise awareness for music education for kids

A while back I posted about Kris Allen’s mustache campaign to raise awareness for music education for kids. Kris has since posted two #krisstache updates (see photos embedded below), and as of the time of this post the campaign page on DonorsChoose has registered US$ 6,545 of donations, helping 11,674 kids in the process. At the end of the campaign, the donation will be matched by Music Empowers Foundation, doubling the amount of money raised and the number of children reached.

Here’s Kris looking hilarious in his #krisstache updates…

Not for the faint of heart, I know. Kris is enduring enormous ~pain and public humiliation all in the name of charity; will you help him bring music education to kids in need?

The fundraiser was announced on November 14, 2011, so only two weeks left now… it won’t be long till pretty!Kris is back again… in the meantime, here is something pretty for your eyes :)

Kris Allen’s growing a mustache to support music education, here’s how we can help

Short version:
Kris is growing a mustache to support music education. We can support him by –

  1. Donating to Donorschoose.org, where our donations will be matched by Music Empowers (every dollar helps!);
  2. Stach’ing our Twitter and/or Facebook profile pictures by following these instructions (if you want to be featured on The Great Wall of Stache, just send a tweet to @KrisAllenHK);
  3. Raise awareness to this wonderful cause by telling everyone we know!

Long version:
Kris Allen and Music Empowers once again are teaming up in support of music education for kids. For their latest effort the duo are partnering to provide a major grant to Donorschoose.org, the national online charity that matches individual donors to project requests fro teachers in public schools. Funds provided by Music Empowers will be used to match contributions made by individual donors to eligible classroom music education projects. “Once individual donations total 50% of a music project’s cost, we will fund the other 50%,” explained Andy Davis, Founder of Music Empowers. Kris and Andy hope that their initiative will help to fund hundreds of projects and benefit over 10,000 kids. Here is the link to the press release.

This is what Kris has to say about his stache:

For the next four weeks, I will subject myself to public humiliation and private doubt by growing what will no-doubt be a ridiculous-looking Mustache. To justify this endeavor, I need your support. Please sponsor my ‘stache by choosing a classroom project below and making a donation of any amount. And wish me and my Mustache luck.

And check out Kris being all adorable in this PSA:

Kris Allen’s Dirtiest Secret Revealed (video)

The dirty folks over at @TheDirtyMinds are contributing to the Kris Fans Unite x The Girl Effect fundraiser by donating US$ 0.50 per view of the following video, up to $100. You have one day to tell all your friends to watch it and help raise money for charity!

Clarification on @ArtistSupporter’s donation matching

Sherrie‘s generous donation matching has nothing to do with Global Giving’s donation matching campaign. She does not require that you make a recurring donation. All donations made via Kris Fans Unite’s giving page by Nov 15 will be matched (up to USD 5,000.00), whether they are one-off or recurring donations.

Do you have time to post a tweet? It’ll mean a one-dollar donation to The Girl Effect!

Updated: The campaign is now over! 33 Twitter accounts participated, earning USD 16.50 for The Girl Effect. I rounded it up and donated USD 20.00, which will mean a total contribution of USD 40.00 to the charity after @ArtistSupporter’s donation matching. Thanks to everyone who helped!

Hey you generous Kris Allen fans! Would you like to help raise money for The Girl Effect by doing something as simple as posting a tweet?

I will donate USD 0.50 for every tweet that promotes the Kris Fans Unite x The Girl Effect fundraiser, up to USD 50.00 (that means 100 Twitter accounts can participate!).

Money raised by this Twitter campaign will be matched by @ArtistSupporter, which means every tweet is actually worth one US dollar, so please tell all your friends about it! If you want to offer additional donation matching for this mini Twitter campaign, please leave a comment here, or contact @KrisAllenHK on Twitter, or email KrisAllenHK@gmail.com. (You can sponsor by making every tweet worth more money, or by increasing the number of tweets eligible for donation.)

Rules:

  1. You have a public Twitter account with at least 10 followers; AND
  2. You follow @KrisAllen on Twitter; AND
  3. You post the red text below in a public tweet by Monday, November 14 2011 23:55 Hong Kong time (GMT+0800) (see world clock conversion here) (see countdown clock here);
  4. One eligible tweet per Twitter account. (You can post as many tweets as you like, but only one tweet per Twitter account will be edligble because I want as many people to see the message as possible!)
  5. Retweet (or RT) does not count.

Your tweet should read exactly like this (just copy and paste all the red text to make sure there is no typo):

Have $10 to spare? Donations made to @GirlEffect via this page by Nov 15 will b matched, every $ helps http://j.mp/rtzGzg #KrisFansUniteGE
