Zendaya Celebrated her 19th Birthday in a Selfless Way for a Good Cause

Zendaya Celebrated her 19th Birthday in a Selfless Way for a Good Cause

Singer and actress Zendaya recently turned 19 on September 1. To celebrate her birthday, she asked fans for a special gift. 

In July, she traveled to Africa with the UNAIDS Foundation and met a family of three young boys whose parents died from AIDS, reported Billboard. In a tweet, she told fans she was fundraising to help support the family. 

 

Zendaya's fans who chose to get involved also have a chance to be rewarded. Every $10 donated gave them a chance to win a video call with her.
