K.C. Undercover’s Zendaya celebrated the big 2-0 Thursday. First she commemorated the milestone by (duh!) taking a selfie declaring herself “a woman.”
Then the Spider-Man: Homecoming star does what she does best–direct the spotlight to a cause that needs it.
Zendaya’s birthday wish is to raise $50,000 to Convoy of Hope’s–“a faith-based non-profit that provides food, water, emergency supplies and opportunities to people in need around the globe”–women empowerment initiative that gives job training and education to women in Ethiopia, Tanzania, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Philippines.
Below is what the future Nobel Peace Prize winner wrote on the Convoy of Hope’s donor page:
“For my birthday this year, please join me in supporting strong, beautiful and dignified women around the world. Your gift of any amount will make a positive difference in the lives of these amazing ladies. So, let’s do this!”
So far, $3,433 has been raised to make sure women continue to run the world.
Last year, Zendaya used her 19th birthday to raise $52,858 for orphaned children in South Africa.
Another year older, but Z is light years in the wise department.
