Fans of Clay Aiken, Taylor Hicks, Elliott Yamin, Ace Young and other American Idols can shop at over 30 merchants at EddietheDawg.org to help find a cure for diabetes or support other causes, while being entertained with photos, video and stories.

The list of fortunate charitable programs that have received contributions from this rapidly growing fan base includes well-known organizations such as UNICEF, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The Children's Hospital, The Autism Society and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, as well as newer organizations which have benefited from awareness and contributions such as The Bubel/Aiken Foundation, GuluWalk, Kid One Transport, CheckOnMe.org and others.

EddieTheDawg.org has partnered with over 30 merchants to provide online shopping that will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Now anyone can simply go to the E-Store for JDRF at EddietheDawg.org and shop using links on that Web site, and commissions will be earned to benefit JDRF. Buy anything you want through these links, and get tips on special discounts and free shipping offers from Amazon.com, Wal-mart, Dell Home Systems, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Thrifty Rent-A-Car, iTunes, Hickory Farms, Liz Claiborne, Mrs. Fields, Macy's, PETsMART, Netflix, 1-800-FLOWERS, The Sharper Image, Footlocker, Toys R Us, Wine.com, Puritan's Pride, Sony Music Store and many others.

Elliott Yamin and Kevin Covais, of American Idol Season 5, both have been diagnosed with Type 1 juvenile diabetes. Gregory Ellis, a young actor who toured with Clay Aiken's Joyful Noise Tour 2005, was diagnosed last December. According to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, there are 20.8 million Americans with diabetes, and as many as 3 million Americans with Type 1 juvenile diabetes. Visit EddieTheDawg.org to find ways you can donate and volunteer to help find a cure for diabetes on their behalf.

Many celebrities put their visibility to work for causes they support, but what makes this network of givers stand out is their passion for being part of a nation of tightly bonded fan-friends. American Idol fans are not on board because they are star-struck, but because they identify with someone who was just like them or like the people they know in their hometowns, families, schools, at work and places of worship. These motivated followers find clever ways to organize and fund parties, hold successful auctions and craft sales, purchase music, concert tickets and merchandise for themselves and their friends, and of the greatest importance, raise and donate money to the causes that are important to the people — fans and celebrities — they care about.

EddieTheDawg.org has started to connect all of these wonderful efforts under one umbrella. It is a place where fans of American Idols can find information on current fundraisers and events, while being entertained with fresh photos, video and stories. The Website is named after a rescued canine who has diabetes. After his kind owner restored his vision with surgery, Eddie now enjoys a full life and does what he can to give back to others in need.
