Zendaya Launches Crowdrise Campaign For Her Birthday After Attending HIV Prevention Event in South Africa
Zendaya is doing something extra special for her birthday this year.
The 18-year-old actress/singer, who turns 19 TODAY, September 1, is launching a Crowdrise campaign to raise money for three young brothers who lost their parents to AIDS.
Back in July, Zendaya traveled to South Africa to learn about how HIV testing is done at an HIV Counseling and Testing Day, which was organized by the HEAIDS First Things First student health program and the international ProTest HIV Campaign of the Joint United Nations.
“Instead of presents, I want to help three brothers who inspired me beyond words on my recent trip with UNAIDS to South Africa,” Z wrote on the campaign page. “And I’m asking you, my amazing fans to help me. These three are supporting each other after losing both of their parents in a span of two years. They currently live in a temporary settlement, and with your support, I’m determined to move them into a safe home and hopefully help others just like them. Every dollar you donate will go directly to this cause. I can’t do it alone, but I believe that together we can truly change their lives.”
Be sure to get your donations in now!
