Dan Rad Continues To Be Awesome

We're even more in love with Daniel Radcliffe than we were before!

The Harry Potter star has made an extremely generous donation in his name to The Trevor Project!

In case you weren't aware, The Trevor Project is the only 24-hour crisis and suicide hotline in the nation specifically targeted at lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

The Trevor Project is "extremely grateful" for Daniel's "truly inspiring and historic generosity and support," says Charles Robbins, the executive director for the organization.

"He is setting a meaningful example for millions of young people around the world by embracing diversity and demonstrating that he cares deeply about the well-being of LGBTQ youth," Robbins concludes.

We agree!

Radcliffe has released quite the touching statement about his donation to the non-profit organization.

Says Dan:

I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work. It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. I deeply hope my support can raise the organization's visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline's highly trained counselors and Trevor's many other resources. It's vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.

Dan Rad deserves a big pat on the back!

Good work, bb!!!

    Re: Chileangurl87
    I know!! Miley just spends her cash on slutty clothes and half of it goes to Billy Ray!!
    I wish girls would stop looking up to RPattz just because of the Twilishit, and start looking up to Dan Rad, who is a true example of a role model!!



  14. 14

    awwww, what a sweet boy. It makes a change to see someone young, rich and famous doing something good, and honestly too. He's talked about this issue before and its obviously one close to his heart.

    Heart warming.

  21. 21

    He's amazing, and so are all the other harry potter castmates. they've grown up to be king, intelligent and caring adults and I love him for doing this. Well done Daniel!



  22. 22

    That is wonderful!



  23. 23

    I knew I loved that guy. And BTW, what the hell does the "Q" stand for in LBGTQ?



  24. 24

    Re: Long Dong ConneryRe: Canadiana717 – oh get a broom you two :P (to stay in the harry potter scene.. hehe)

  26. 26

    hes such a cool guy and always nice! i couldnt imagin a greasy poser like R0Patz doing anything like this :P



  27. 27

    GO DAN!! This is definitely a cause that deserves attention and I'm so happy that a huge celebrity like DanRad is bringing attention to it! He's so AWESOME!!! :D



  28. 28

    omg that is amazing



  29. 29

    This is why he's weay better then Robert! I wish there were more people like him in Hollywood.

    Re: JoeyDub

    It stands for Queer. I had to know that for my Women Studies class. Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transexual-Queer



  31. 31

    suicides one of the top 3 killers of young people? i dint know that, scary though



  32. 32

    Dan is amazing! He gets 2 thumbs up! My church raised like $370 for The Trevor Project and I am so happy that it keeps getting money to keep it running!



  33. 33

    amazing!
    dan r. rules.
    this is what celebrities should be doing, using their power to promote peace and awareness and good…. not hawking stupid shit so they can have another endorsement.



  34. 34

    Aw bless! He's still not fit though, he looks a bit waxy. Out of interest, what does the Q stand for in LBGTQ? The rest i can work out but the Q's got me stumped!



  35. 35

    It says Q stands for QUESTIONING!



  36. 36

    It's about time that someone stood up for a cause that they don't personally suffer from. Not to say that being LGBTQ means you suffer, however if your going to commit suicide, you obviously do. What I mean is, we never hear of a celebrity fighting for or standing up for a cause that they are not personally affected by and to know that this young man has taken time, money, and his heart and placed it in this cause makes him one of the few people in this business who is worth looking up to. Apparently he walks away from his character portrayal with more than just memories, he walks away with strength and courage.



  37. 37

    Re: Canadiana717 – I don't know who you are, but you two are hilarious!



  38. 38

    I love him!



  39. 39

    aw what a sweet kid. and he's legal too, right? *rubs hands in creeper fashion*
    I'm coming for you Danny……



  40. 40

    I think he is gay.



  41. 41

    he may not be the sexiest, he may not be as cute as ten years before
    but he's always been smart, sweet, nice and he really can be called a star



  42. 42

    that's freakin' awesome!!!!! way to go mate xo



  43. 43

    God, suicide is just so sad!! This 17-year-old boy from my neighberhood hung himself last night… He had just broken up with his girlfriend, and.. well, I guess that's what triggered it! RIP!



  44. 44

    typical. he's awesome :)
    yayy for hp actors!



  45. 45

    he grew up into a hot young man :) and it's awesome that he is supporting the trevor project!! kudos to you, mr radcliffe!



  46. 46

    I luff you, Dan!



  47. 47

    He is possibly the coolest person ever… or at least, the coolest actor.



  48. 48

    thats kool he gets 5stars for that



  49. 49

    Good job Daniel!



  50. 50

    Daniel is a class act and I wish more wealthy people would use their celebrity clout to promote good causes.
    He really is a role model.
    Perez, take note .. you are long overdue to do something positive.



  51. 51

    pattinson can suck it…Daniel is way sexier and this just proves his heart is sexy too! MEOW!



  52. 52

    Dan is such a sweetheart. It's good to see that he has grown up to be a well rounded empathetic person. not like so many other stars today who are hoarding fame or desperately trying to be in the news by putting out naked pics of themselves, making sex tapes or wearing ridiculous outfits. Note to all stars: if you really want to be remembered, do something that will help those in need of it. I would much rather see more stories like this on here than another naked pic of some nonentity.



  53. 53

    you go, dan rad!!



  54. 54

    i like him very much.he's very clever and funny and i think he's just a normal guy



  55. 55

    Im so with ya on this one Perez … I love this guy in a totally non stalkerish way … i think ;)
    xxx



  56. 56

    umm no offense but wtf does the "Q" stand for…..? ………i need help.



  57. 57

    Re: insertsobriquet

    oohh "queer"? so that's only acceptable for them to say? I don't ever say it in that context (i'm gay) but seriously……that's like the N word.



  58. 58

    awwww my Dan is so sweet!!!! he is such a good person!!! i love him :D this kinda makes me feel a terrible person because i am homophoic, I will try to change that, promise!



  59. 59

    hey dan i wish you would help animals too



  60. 60

    i wish other celebrities owuld learn from emma dan and rupert, this world need more celebrities like them



  61. 61

    IT´S JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTILL HE FINALLY ADMITS THAT HE´S GAY



  62. 62

    LGBTQ, Q = Questioning, guys!



  63. 63

    He's such a sweet guy!



  64. 64

    he is amazng :]



  65. 65

    He is gay though eh?



  66. 66

    The older he gets, the cuter he gets. Keep up the good work. Luv ya.



  67. 67

    :D
    Good for him! At least he's putting his stardom to good use!



  68. 68

    Oh now. Dan is used to his money and has had it longer. Rob just doesn't know what to do with it yet.. He will do something nice too. Give him a minute.



  69. 69

    This guy is so adorable and genuine.



  70. 70

    I am sure he worries about tranny suicides, etc. If trannies disappeared who would he have to date?



  71. 71

    woww, my mann



  72. 72

    Is this HIS coming out announcement too?



  73. 73

    IF HE REALLY CARES ABOUT "GAY" KIDS HE SHOULD GIVE MONEY TO A CHRISTIAN CHARITY THAT CURES KIDS OF THAT SICKNESS SO THEY CAN BE HEALTHY PEOPLE WHO LIVE DECENT PRODUCTIVE HETEROSEXUAL LIVES



  74. 74

    I LAUGHED WHEN I SAW THIS. HE IS A REAL SICKO. THIS IS LIKE SAYING "I CARE ABOUT KIDS THAT SMOKE. KIDS THAT SMOKE ARE FOUR TIMES AS LIKELY TO DIE FROM LUNG CANCER AS KIDS THAT DONT. THEREFORE IM DONATING MONEY TO AN ORGANIZATION THAT PROMOTES AND ADVOCATES TEEN SMOKING". HE SHOWS HE CARES ABOUT "GAY" KIDS BY ENCOURAGING THAT SICK ASPECT OF THEIR LIVES? IF HE REALLY CARED AOUT KIDS HE WOULD GIVE MONEY TO AN ORGANIZATION THAT CURES HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR



  75. 75

    how awesome! what a roll model he has become! it's wonderful to see someone so young but so passionate about a worthwhile cause!



  76. 76

    Dan APPEARS to be sweet and nice, etc. Only people who really know him can tell if that is true. At one time in the past he was clearly shy and yes, "sweet" and "nice", but he has grown up. Now he seems okay, far from the worst of professional actors, but no longer "sweet" or especially "nice". In interviews he seems pretty hard and calculating like most actors. And not shy at all. I think his fame has finally made him utterly self centered, as are probably most actors sooner or later, and self centered people are rarely really "sweet" or "nice".



  77. 77

    I think people who idolize movie stars probably don't quite understand how self centered they are, or become. If they are successful their lives are a constant round of talking about themselves, or drawing attention to themselves. In short everything they do revolves around "me". This has to have a weird effect on them in that they become fixated on themselves completely. The rest of the world is just "fandom" that is useful only to pay attention to them. No wonder so many go off the rails. Even the best become egonaniacs. The only fly in the ointment is what no one can avoid: accidents, bad health (cancer), addiction and death.
