Disney Star Zendaya Celebrates 18th Birthday By Raising Funds to Feed Hungry Children

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Disney star and Hollywood Records' multi-platinum artist Zendaya will celebrate her 18th birthday on Sept. 1, 2014 with a campaign to help feed at least 150 hungry children in Haiti, Tanzania and the Philippines through feedONE, an initiative of Convoy of Hope. From Aug. 25 through Sept. 9, 2014, fans of the pop star can help her reach her goal by visiting feedone.com/Zendaya and making a donation. Every $10 raised will feed a child for one month. Fans may also text ZHOPE to 50555 to feed one child.

"Too many kids will go back to school hungry this year, but we can do something about that," said Zendaya. "My generation has the opportunity to change the world. With Convoy of Hope, I've raised my voice and am using it to give people hope."

International, humanitarian-relief organization, Convoy of Hope brings help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting. A Convoy of Hope initiative, feedONE currently feeds more than 146,000 children in 11 countries. The organization welcomes help from people like Zendaya to feed the tens of thousands more children on its waiting list.

"We're so grateful that Zendaya is using her platform to raise awareness for those in need," said Hal Donaldson, president and co-founder of Convoy of Hope. "We look forward to continuing to partner with her in the future."

Zendaya has been an advocate for Convoy of Hope since Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of New York and New Jersey in 2012, promoting disaster response work by the organization. The singer urged her fans to text a $10 donation to help.

Since then, Zendaya has offered her voice and influence to tell Convoy of Hope's story to her millions of followers on social media. In 2013, Zendaya also encouraged fans to support Convoy of Hope after tornadoes ravaged Oklahoma and when Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines.

Zendaya also recently released a cover of John Legend's "All of Me," the proceeds of which will benefit Convoy of Hope.
