American Idol Adam Lambert fans fight to the finish to win donorschoose.org competition

DonorsChoose.org teamed up with American Idol Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert and thousands of his fans donated directly to classroom project requests posted by teachers at DonorsChoose.org.

Adam Lambert’s contest closed on Sunday raising $207,329 for the charity reaching over 80,000 students.

DonorsChoose.org created a unique Adam Lambert page for each fan group, which displayed classroom projects in need of funding. Fans donated any amount to any project of their choosing; each contribution helped that particular fan group push forward in the competition. A "Lambert leader board" at www.donorschoose.org/AdamLambert tracked real-time results.

Now that the challenge concluded, Adam has stated he will deliver supplies to a randomly selected classroom and reward the fan group with the most donations with signed photos and exclusive online interviews.

"My fans have been so amazing in their support that I would love for them to contribute to something I believe in," stated Adam Lambert. "Every kid deserves a great education and access to the materials and experiences that make it possible. I'm so thrilled to team up with DonorsChoose.org and encourage my fans to support arts and music projects in classrooms. Plus, I can't wait to see the results of the competition!"

The winning fan group is ‘ONTD_AI’ which raised $80,987 with 918 fans donating.

Even though the Adam Lambert fan contest had concluded you can still donate to donorschoose.org to help children who are in need of classroom supplies.
