As fans we often want to show our appreciation for the people that create the things we love. After all, if it wasn’t for them the fandom wouldn’t a be thing. But it’s hard to know how to express this love. In recent years fans have increasingly turned to charity to show the celebrities we love just how much we love them. That’s exactly what Teen Wolf fans are doing right now for Tyler Posey.
Teen Wolf fan, Lauren (tidepooling) has set up a GoFundMe charity page to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on actor Tyler Posey’s behalf. The aim is to raise $5000 in time for The Bite Convention in April, which Posey is scheduled to attend.
“I’d like to present him with some sort of certificate showing him how much we’ve raised in his honor at BiteCon, so we have a little under two months to raise money—I’ve set our goal at $5000—but I believe in you guys!” – Lauren
For those of you that don’t know LLS is a cause that Tyler Posey has campaigned for a lot. Last year Posey gave fans that donated to the cause the chance to walk with him at the Hollywood Light the Night Walk. On top of that Posey’s Serengetee line “Poseys Paradise” supports the charity (15% of every purchase goes back to LLS), and at the recent Days of the Wolf Convention he auctioned off a Teen Wolf script for the charity. I don’t think Teen Wolf fans could have found a better way to show their appreciation for Posey.
“He has such a kind heart and is one of the most down-to-earth, genuine celebrities I’ve ever met, and I think it would be wonderful if we could put money towards an amazing cause in his name to thank him for everything he’s done.” – Lauren.
Fans have already raised over $1000 in 24hrs and the Tumblr post advertising this project has over 2000 notes, which is pretty awesome start. This is a really lovely idea, for a FANTASTIC cause in honour of a seriously cool guy, what’s not to love?
Donate to Teen Wolf fans for LLS on GoFundMe – donations go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
