Special Giving: Use the button below to donate your own amount, and really, any amount is appreciated!

Max Adler plays a bully on Glee but uses the Arts to inspire kids to “Be Brave Enough to Be Kind”. Glee TV show star Max Adler, new International Spokesperson for non-profit “City Hearts: Kids Say Yes to the Arts”, is spearheading our nonprofit’s first e-fundraiser for his “Max’s A-B-C Initiative: Anti-Bullying through City Hearts”.

Max says: “I feel incredibly lucky, fortunate, and humbled to be in the position that I am in, and so this year, for my 26th birthday, I am asking for nothing for myself, but instead, for anyone who wishes to give me a gift for my birthday, to please donate what they can. That would be the absolute best birthday present for me! Thanks!”The campaign runs for 3 months through April 17, 2012, during which time, each donation will be matched by a donation from the Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation.This is an “all or none” challenge, such that City Hearts must raise at least $7,000 in contributions to qualify for draw down of the matching funds of $5,000. Other entities are invited to offer matching donations as well. Perhaps your company has a matching program. Please contact City Hearts at info@cityhearts.org.

“If we educate today’s youth to stand up for one another and treat each other equally and with mutual respect, regardless of gender, creed, wealth, status or sexual orientation,” Adler said, “we can turn bullying into a thing of the past and things will start to change significantly. When you express yourself creatively, you become more confident and happy with who you are, and don’t feel the need to belittle or degrade others. My goal is to inspire kids to ‘Be Brave Enough to Be Kind.’” -Max Adler
