If you want a prime example of what sets Adam Lambert’s fans (or the “Glamily,” if you will) apart from some other celebritiy fandoms out there, all you have to do is check out this story.
As we wrote about previously, the hot thing for people to do across the internet this weekend (for some reason or another) is to have celebrities hit Twitter’s Trending Topics list in some sort of “alternate” form. An example of this would be “Katy Berry” or “Miley Citrus.” For Adam, the name was one of the more random choices out there — “Adam Unfbert.”
What really makes this story interesting, though, is what fans chose to do once the term became popular enough to trend around the world — they promoted Adam’s charitable efforts to provide clean water to people in underdeveloped countries. As of this writing, the campaign is nearing the $90,000 mark — which is certainly amazing once you consider that the initial goal was to have $29,000 raised by January 29.
Are you proud that fellow Adam fans have been able to turn something as simple as a Twitter trend into something inspiring, and what do you think this says about the fandom as a whole? To view recent photos of Adam, follow the link here.
