Wentworth Miller Fans for Charity

Wentworth Miller Fans for Charity

The fans of Prison Break star Wentworth Miller are joining together to raise money in Wentworth‘s name for the children’s charity, UNICEF.

Wentworth, 35, has given this project his full blessing: “It’s my privilege to be a part of the entertainment business, an industry that has reached out to and touched the lives of billions of people around the world. It gives me tremendous pleasure to think that many of those same people have been motivated to reach out to others in turn. This charitable effort was conceived, organized and executed by a group of generous fans willing to donate their time and energies to a worthy cause. I’m honored to participate in this process, and I thank you for doing the same.”

For more information on how you donate, visit WentworthMillerFansForCharity.org. This project will run from April 1 until June 30, so donate now!

And if you’ve been sleeping under a rock, FOX recently renewed Prison Break for a fourth season, ordering a full 22 episodes. Production this time around will be in Los Angeles.

    Great idea!

  • geniass

    This is such a great idea. Big ups to the girls who put their work into this!!

  • www.

    i hope that fans who will give sincerely (good intentions), will give at first with intention to help children before to please wentworth for his birthday because someone told me they want honoring him for his next birthday on doing good actions it ‘s kind and generous but i’m also sad that the most motivation of his project is to please someone:an actor, i’m afraid that some of fans (not all fans) will donate without thinking deeply about children..maybe i’m wrong but in a way i think it’s true…
    so people don’t wait to be fan of somebody giving you inspiration to make good actions, do it by your charity soul….
    Anyway i hope that there will be a lot of donations…

    A FUTURE

    CHILDREN

    ADULTS MISTAKES

    Yahweh
    Take these shoes
    Click clacking down some dead end street
    Take these shoes
    And make them fit
    Take this shirt
    Polyester white trash made in nowhere
    Take this shirt
    And make it clean, clean
    Take this soul
    Stranded in some skin and bones
    Take this soul
    And make it sing

    Yahweh, Yahweh
    Always pain before a child is born
    Yahweh, Yahweh
    Still I’m waiting for the dawn

    Take these hands
    Teach them what to carry
    Take these hands
    Don’t make a fist
    Take this mouth
    So quick to criticise
    Take this mouth
    Give it a kiss

    Yahweh, Yahweh
    Always pain before a child is born
    Yahweh, Yahweh
    Still I’m waiting for the dawn

    Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
    The sun is coming up on the ocean
    This love is like a drop in the ocean
    This love is like a drop in the ocean

    Yahweh, Yahweh
    Always pain before a child is born
    Yahweh, tell me now
    Why the dark before the dawn?

    Take this city
    A city should be shining on a hill
    Take this city
    If it be your will
    What no man can own, no man can take
    Take this heart
    Take this heart
    Take this heart
    And make it break

  • AJJ

    Hey ZanessaFan4Lyfe what charities are your beloved Zanessa Part of ? Whay would you comment on them in a topic that has absolutely nothing to do with them, beyond stupid. I can pretty much guess you’re a 12 year old annoying self absorbed child.

    Good for Wentworth!!!!

  • vittoria crispin

    I just hope his being charitable really comes from the very core of his soul and not just use it as a publicity stunt to gain popularity.

    Anyway, good luck to the fans of WM for this project and to the MAN himself for supporting the cause!

  • FRESH RAGGEDY ANNE

    I hope that they are doing this with every intention to help children and not just to impress an Actor. Good for Them if they are. I have to say I agree with everyone he is really cute and the show is really good so glad they are up for another season. can Anyone tell me who the hell Zanessa is?

    Many actors have a special cause. Wentworth has now chosen his and with his fans will try to do some good. I see only a up-side to this-kudos.

  • Opus of Day

    A worthy cause “yes” for the children!!

  • marianne

  • Core of Love is…..

    Our children are our “National Treasure” destined to be our future and we need to cherish, protect and nurture them as a gardener would lovingly nurture a rose garden.

  • gabriella

    Went’s fans started this project, and he supports our efforts. It is not a publicity stunt. It is a way for fans everywhere to honor him and to help children at the same time.

    For the benefit of children ALL OVER THE WORLD please donate!!!

    Thank you, jared, for your support!!

  • grace

    As one of the participants in this campaign, I’m quite proud to say that our Wentworth fansite in Taiwan has some connection with that. We do this absolutely for the worthy cause and hope anyone who cares about children will generously take part in it.

    a nice project.
    i’m happy to join this donation.
    i think the motivation of donation is not important.
    the important thing is we are thinking children in the world.
    and i thank went for that he and his fans give me a chance to do it.
    and please don’t think in different way.
    miller said This was conceived, organized and executed by his fans
    he, himself just participates in.

  • gabriella

    I hope that his hair will be long. But only Prison Break ended.

  • anissa

    @young/grace thanks to have specified your purpose and clarified that’s above all for children…i support you…God bless your actions

    DONATE FOR CHILDREN PEOPLE !

  • cheekychick

    KatieS #24. He is donating $5000. Read his letter at the site given above.

    I wonder how much he’s making per episode of his tv series. Must be several thousand dollars per episode. $5000 is ridiculously little when you think of that.

    It’s the usual case. Fans give money, the celebrity gets the credit.

  • cffever

    cheekychick : It’s the usual case. Fans give money, the celebrity gets the credit.

    ====
    Yes, that’s what his fans want. And I think this project is calling for these who’d love to pay some respect and admiration in this way for his hard work and goodness.

  • Suz

    Cheekychick – It is non of anyones business what he makes per episode. $5000 is a lot of money and very generous of him. This was started by his fans. He didn’t have to do anything but he did. And you have obviously read the letter of the site so you would have seen that he is very proud of his fans for this. The organizers have done a great job and Wentworth, being the beautiful person that his is, I am sure will remind the press and media that the fans were behind this. I remind you of his quote:
    “It’s my privilege to be a part of the entertainment business, an industry that has reached out to and touched the lives of billions of people around the world. It gives me tremendous pleasure to think that many of those same people have been motivated to reach out to others in turn. This charitable effort was conceived, organized and executed by a group of generous fans willing to donate their time and energies to a worthy cause. I’m honored to participate in this process, and I thank you for doing the same.”

    =====
    Yes, this is exactly what his fans want. And believe me there are people who’d love to pay in some way to show him respect and admiration for his hard work and goodness. This project is calling out for these people, giving them a opportunity to do so in a constructive way.

  • Just me…

    It is time that people open the eyes and realizes that nowadays in 2008(in this materialistic time), children still suffer all over the world.

    And the minimum which we can do for them and for our future… is to DONATE!!!

    If we all did a little effort…things can change!!
    It is with small thing that we can achieve large thing…Just think about it!!

    So I’m glad to join this UNICEF project first for the children and then for me.

    PS: I’m really proud to be a Wentworth Miller fan!!!!

  • f

    COCO

  • EE.Cummings says….

    Donate is to ACT

    When people open the eyes, they realize In a world of plenty, a child can die for lack of food …

    That why we decide to DONATE.

    Why does Wentworth participate to this project ?
