Kelly Clarkson has found her meaning of life — her family — and now the Grammy winner wants to help others find meaning in their own lives.
The “Love So Soft” singer, 35, is helping with a new fundraising campaign for the It Gets Better Project, which is a nonprofit organization that leverages the power of media to reach and provide critical support and hope to LGBTQ+ kids.
In a statement released to PEOPLE, Clarkson — who is stepmom to Savannah, 16, and Seth, 10, and mom to daughter River Rose, 3, and son Remington “Remy” Alexander, 19 months — says that “as a mother and as someone who wants my kids to grow up in a world where they know their self-worth she is a “huge supporter of the It Gets Better Project and its goal to uplift young LGBTQ+ people through messages of hope and positivity.”
Clarkson recently released her new album Meaning of Life and is now inviting fans to create artwork showcasing their “meaning of life.” The winning submission will be chosen by the singer and will appear as a digital postcard available to send from the It Gets Better Project website. A limited print run of the postcard will be available in packs of 10 along with a personal signed note from Clarkson to the first 250 people to donate $50 or more to It Gets Better Project.
“This time of year is all about togetherness, hope, and looking to the year ahead,” says Brett Peters, director of media and strategic partnerships at the It Gets Better Project.”We believe the opportunity to illustrate the ‘meaning of life’ will deeply resonate with supporters of the Project and fans of Kelly Clarkson, who is an outspoken advocate on the importance self-worth and a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ+ community.”
The It Gets Better Project’s fan art contest kicks off Tuesday and participants can submit their entries at itgetsbetter.org through Dec. 5. Clarkson and It Gets Better Project will jointly announce the winning submission on Dec. 21. Winner will receive 10 sets of the limited edition postcard and a signed copy of Meaning of Life.
