This Week's Inspirational Pop Culture Moments

This week chicks announced they're rockin' for charity, a singer made plans to build a school, a child star urged fans to give back to other kids, stars and locals joined forces to save a landmark, and actors wrote letters to the troops. See which celebrities got involved in this week's inspirational pop culture moments.

The Ladies of Lilith Fair Give Back

The rockin’ ladies of Lilith Fair are hitting the road again this summer and they’re giving back locally. Tour organizers are launching the “Choose Your Charity” campaign on Facebook. Fans can go online and vote on a pre-selected list of women’s groups in their area.

Voting on a preliminary list of organizations starts on Monday, May 3 and will get whittled down to a group of the top five, and then three for each city on the tour. This final round of voting will start the next day and run until May 31.

Once Lilith Fair founders Sarah McLachlan, Terry McBride, Dan Fraser, and Marty Diamond pick the winners from the top three in each locale, the tour will donate $1 for every ticket sold in that town to the chosen charity.

And really, everyone who goes to see Lilith Fair wins. The summer concert series, which kicks off in Calgary on June 27 and wraps up in Dallas on August 18, features performances from artists like Corinne Bailey Rae, Martina McBride, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, and Norah Jones.
