Celeb Causes - Bryan Adams is a Giver

Bryan Adams has done more than most people dream of doing. He's had the honor of performing with talented artists like Pavarotti and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. He's won an endless list of awards, including Artist-of-the-Decade and several from foreign countries like Germany, Japan and UK. He's in the Guinness Book World of Records for the longest running top single in British music history with the song, (Everything I Do), I Do For You. And, he's also in the Canadian Association of Broadcaster's Hall of Fame. With an overwhelming list of accomplishments it's impressive to hear Bryan is also active in several charitable causes.

In July of '85 Bryan co-wrote and helped perform Tears Are Not Enough as Canada's contribution to the Live Aid concert in Philadelphia. In '87, Bryan was chosen to headline the Prince's Trust Fund charity pop concerts in London, England. There he performed three Beatles songs and was joined by the three remaining Beatles themselves, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. His ongoing work with Greenpeace played a big role in establishing a whale sanctuary in the Antarctic. In recognition of his outstanding achievements, the Canadian Government named Bryan Adams an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1990. In the late 90s Bryan also became involved in the fight against breast cancer.

For another campaign, Bryan stopped in Cranbrook, British Columbia as part of his western concert tour where he had a benefit concert for avalanche awareness. Margaret Trudeau, ex-wife of the late, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, accepted a cheque from the singer for $50,000, which was a donation to the Canadian Avalanche Foundation. Margaret has been working with the foundation to promote awareness of avalanche dangers since the death of her son, Michel (Micha) Trudeau, in an avalanche in Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park in '98.

    "Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their perfect lives." It's based off the book series by the same name and it's these girls that get tormented by "A" and it's like a mystery. You'd probably want to start from the beginning or it'd be hard to understand, it's on Netflix.
