Maroon 5 Guitarist James Valentine Wants Charity Donations For Birthday

Filed under: RunningCharityCancer

James Valentine Maroon 5

If you don't love them for their music, at least give Maroon 5 credit for all of their charity efforts!

Last we heard, the band helped create a Snapple flavor to raise funds for Feeding America. On top of supporting the charity with all sales from their iced tea, the band donated $250,000 out of their own pocket!

Now, guitarist James Valentine is taking philanthropy into his own hands legs and is running the 2012 L.A. Marathon to benefit childhood cancer organization, The Pablove Foundation.

His birthday is on October 5th, but instead of any gifts, he's asking friends, family, and fans to sponsor his run and make a donation to the pediatric cancer research foundation.

Every dollar donated will not only help cure a child's cancer, but motivate James to step up his running ability and finish his first marathon! In a letter on the Pablove Foundation's website, he wrote:

"I usually don't ask for gifts, but this year will you send a donation to The Pablove Foundation to sponsor my run? Now this isn't purely altruism, I've always wanted to run a full marathon; with each dollar you send in, you're emboldening my will to finish this thing."

We hope James get his birthday wish and reaches his goal of $5,000 in charitable donations to support his run.

Maroon 5 charity tea

"Tea Will Be Loved" is Snapple's latest flavor and Maroon 5's latest charity effort.

The flavor, named after the band's hit song She Will Be Loved, was created to benefit the charity Feeding America, which feeds hungry people in need all across the country.

It should taste just as good as it feels to give back to the country, as frontman Adam Levine said:

"After lots of taste-testing, we each chose our favorite flavor and combined them to create Snapple Tea Will Be Loved to benefit Feeding America."

It sounds like they went through a lot of flavors too, as he continued:

“It was fun, it was really cool. Some flavors we made tasted like s–t, some tasted amazing. The whole thing was a fun, charitable idea.”

The generous band also donated $250,000 on top of whatever earnings their flavor rakes in for charity! So awesome!

For an easy way to help people in need, go buy a bottle of Snapple's Tea Will Be Loved available NOW!
