The Avril Lavigne Foundation to Pause

| Filed under: The Avril Lavigne Foundation | Posted by: FANNY

 

 

Thank you to all of my fans who have supported the Avril Lavigne Foundation during the last five years. Together we have touched the lives of so many children and young people with disabilities. Our work has allowed Special Olympics athletes from across the world to compete at the World Games, brought music therapy to children with serious illnesses in hospitals, provided Lyme disease treatment to kids who could not afford care, and helped youth with disabilities attend summer camp where they formed lifelong, supportive friendships. The Avril Lavigne Foundation is important to us all and a daily part of our lives – bringing Special Olympics athletes to my concert performances was a highlight of my tour!

 

It is at this time that I am announcing that the Avril Lavigne Foundation will be pausing for the moment. This doesn’t mean that we should stop doing whatever we can to help others. I remain dedicated and will personally keep giving to groups bringing life-changing services to young people during the Foundation’s pause. I hope that all of my fans and the Foundation’s supporters know that every day is an opportunity help someone or educate a friend about an important issue. Each action we take, large or small, is helping to change a life. That’s the spirit that inspired me to start the Foundation and that I carry with me each day.

 

Thank you to all of the nonprofits that have partnered with the Foundation to create and execute incredible programs – together we can dream bigger, do more, and bring hope to young people across the world. I’m excited to see what we will achieve when the Foundation returns!

 
Xo,
Avril

This year Avril’s birthday wish is raise money for helping kids and families with Lyme Disease. Support The Avril Lavigne Foundation and Donate now. You’ll be entered to win a trip to hang out with Avril at the premiere of the movie, Charming and hit the after-party together!
 

 

 
Hey everyone!
 
Every year for my birthday I ask my fans to help me give back to others in need. My fans are always so supportive, and I look forward to this every year! This year, we’re raising funds to support a cause that’s very important to me personally: helping kids and families with Lyme Disease – who could not otherwise afford treatment – get the care they need.
 
With just a small donation to my Foundation, you can support people recovering from Lyme Disease, get cool rewards (like a campaign-exclusive t-shirt or signed merch) AND you’ll be entered for a chance to have your voice be in Charming, my latest animated film, and meet me – I’m the voice of Snow White!
 
You’ll get to record your line with the director of the film, and you might even get a little sneak peek of the animation AND a script signed by the cast members! How cool is that?!
 
Thank you so much – I’ll see one of you soon!
 
XO,
Avril

Hi Everyone,
It’s been so amazing with the new album coming out soon, I wanted to take a minute to give you an update on the Avril Lavigne Foundation. Last summer I had an awesome time visiting Easter Seals Camp Oakes in Big Bear, meeting with the campers, the volunteer staff and learning about their camp experiences.
One of the things I learned while I was there was that while everyone loved summer camp, some campers were not always able to attend or return to camp because of the cost. Since then, the Avril Lavigne Foundation has been working with Easter Seals to identify how we can help!
That’s why I am so proud today to announce the CAMP S.T.A.R.S. program, which stands for Summer Time Avril Rock Stars. Thanks to your support, we are going to help send 50 kids with disabilities to camp this summer who otherwise might not be able to afford it! Our CAMP S.T.A.R.S. will head to camp at 5 sites across the U.S. and Canada. You can learn more about this program here.
To celebrate this announcement, we’ve also created a special video for you from my visit to Camp Oakes last year- watch and share if you’re as excited as I am about the CAMP S.T.A.R.S. program!
Xo,
Avril

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year! I had so much fun working with all of you last year to raise awareness and funds for the Avril Lavigne Foundation. Together we have made tons of kids feel like Rockstars. It really feels like we are a team, and I’m excited for the upcoming year!

 

Today we are proud to announce that we are expanding the Avril Lavigne Rockstar Club to ten more U.S. and Canadian cities. Thanks to your support, the Avril Lavigne Foundation has chosen ten totally unique and fun recreation programs that really represent our R.O.C.K.S. mission: to provide Respect, Opportunities, Choices, Knowledge and Strength in support of children and youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities.

 
A little bit about each of the ten clubs is listed below, look out for more fun updates about them this year on the Avril Lavigne Foundation website, Facebook and twitter. To learn more, check out our press release . I’m really looking forward to seeing the kids love these great programs and hope you are too!

 

Xo,
Avril
