Katy Perry donates $175,000 from California Dreams tour to charities, including the Humane Society!

I’m done hating on Katy Perry. I must have been unhappy with some aspect of myself (not being an adorable pop star married to Russell Brand, perhaps). I’m going to use this forum to come out and say it: I’m a Katy Perry fan. (Don’t worry, I kind of hate myself too). I have bought more of her songs than I care to admit on itunes, which I play when I invite people over for some elegant debauchery. Ask Sarah, we’ve jumped around and sang TGIF countless times on my porch (#tweens)! Oh, and she does a fab rendition of “California Gurls” at karaoke, let me tell you. I clapped my hands with glee the entire time.

Katy and her cat, Kitty Purry

Now that I’ve come clean, let’s proceed! Katy Perry is donating $175,000 of her ticket sales from the California Dreams tour to over 50 charities, including the Humane Society, Generosity Water and the Children’s Health Fund. Each organization is rumored to receive around $40,000 each! Haters gonna hate, but I’m not one of them anymore!

Children’s Health Fund (CHF) is a non-profit organisation that provides health care to children and families on mobile medical clinics throughout the United States. CHF was founded in 1987 by singer/songwriter Paul Simon and pediatrician/advocate Irwin Redlener, M.D.. The organisation began with a single mobile medical unit funded by Simon and designed by Redlener’s wife, Karen. More than 20 years later, the organisation has 23 programs with more than 50 mobile medical units and is the nation’s leading provider of mobile-based health care for homeless and low-income children and their families.

My healthy habits include “opting to eat healthy snacks”, “working out”, “taking the stairs instead of the escalator at the subway”, and doing a few others that may intrigue me along the way.

About Children’s Health Fund (CHF)

Children’s Health Fund (CHF), founded in 1987 by pediatrician/child advocate Irwin Redlener, MD, and singer/songwriter Paul Simon, is committed to providing health care to the nation’s most medically underserved children through the development and support of innovative medical programs, response to public health crises and the promotion of guaranteed access to health care for all children.

Without access to regular health care, many children go without treatment for common ailments like asthma or cavities, which can lead to bigger problems if left untreated. CHF mobile medical clinics go into underserved communities and provide ongoing care to children at schools, community centers, homeless shelters and other places in the heart of the community. In addition to pediatric primary care providers, the CHF network consists of other dedicated health care professionals including dentists, mental health providers and nutritionists. The medical home model is a way to ensure continuity of care throughout childhood and adolescence, and coordination of care from multiple providers and systems.

About The Clorox Company

For generations, moms across America have trusted Clorox products to disinfect their homes and help keep their families healthy. In recent years, we elevated our commitment to health by partnering with Children’s Health Fund, the nation’s leading provider of mobile medical, dental and mental health services for homeless and low-income children. This year, we’re proud to extend that partnership with Check- in for Checkups. Together, we believe that preventive health care and everyday healthy habits are key ingredients when it comes to helping kids grow up healthy. As a company, Clorox helps consumers learn the power of prevention such as disinfecting hard surfaces in the home to help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. These are also examples of healthy habits we are trying to promote through Check-in for Checkups.

Through a new social media-driven campaign, Clorox and CHF are working to encourage healthy habits and help provide health care to disadvantaged children. This is the second year CHF and Clorox are partnering and this year’s program is called Check-in for Checkups.

Now when you check- in your healthy habit, you are not only helping yourself, but also the lives of others. The more you check- in, the more you give back to disadvantaged children across the country. This and millions of children don’t have access to regular check-ups and timely health care visits when sick.
