"Idol" Alum Brooke White Encourages Kids To Help Less Fortunate This Summer

AHN - USA - "American Idol" contestant Brooke White, who got praise for her performance of The Beatles hit "Let It Be" this past season, is encouraging kids to help make the world a better place this summer.

The singer has teamed up with "Idol Gives Back" and the aid group Malaria No More to launch the "Save The World Summer" campaign, which encourages children to use their summer activities to raise funds towards fighting malaria.

"This generation of American kids is the most globally-conscious and actively engaged the world has ever seen," says White.

The campaign was inspired by a ten-year old that used his birthday party to raise nearly $1,000 for bed nets for Africa. The participant that raises the most funds this summer will receive two tickets to next year's "Idol" finale.

The proceeds will go towards fighting malaria deaths in Africa "through interventions like life-saving bed nets," according to a press release.

"Malaria remains the number one killer of children under five in Africa, claiming more than 1 million lives a year including an African child every 30 seconds and I am so inspired and proud to be participating in this summer campaign," says White.

Some of the fund-raising activities suggested include lemonade stands, car washes, pool parties, Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) gatherings, social networking, bake sales or asking for donations instead of gifts for birthdays.
