Fans Celebrate Parker's Birthday

No doubt today's third birthday celebration for Parker Foster Aiken is a joyous occasion for him, his parents Clay Aiken and Jaymes Foster, extended family, and friends.

Fans of the little tyke's famous father, who is also a Celebrity Ambassador for UNICEF, have chosen to honor the 8/8/08 anniversary by making donations to in his name for children at risk in the Horn of Africa.

A $10 donation will feed a child for 10 days, immunize over 30 children, and literally make a difference between life and death.

SueReu's montage, set to the singer's "Grace of God" track, displays the catastrophic need for the two million children at risk in the Horn of Africa -- Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, and Somalia.

The montage by LovesClaysVoice features earliest images of Parker with his dad singing "In My Life," a Tried & True favorite.

Happy Birthday, Parker Foster Aiken!

Africa's worst drought in 60 years is compounded by rising food prices and a refugee crisis, creating a true children’s emergency in the area. UNICEF urgently requires additional funds to maintain critical lifesaving services for children who face malnutrition, disease and death.

You can make a donation here. If you use Paypal, you can also leave a message.There are no totals; but according to preliminary message board accounts, little Parker has helped lots of children in the Horn of Africa today.

I hope that someday Clay records "In My Life", and so many other songs from his concerts. Thankfully, we have our resourceful, clack gatherers to preserve these precious moments.

I never realized there were so many pictures of Parker available. Quite a few of them were new to me. Glad you posted the video. Lois

Parker is just adorable! What a wonderful idea it was to celebrate his birthday with donations to UNICEF. I watched the video by SueRue and asked myself "How and Why" does this happen in our world of today. It just SHOULDN'T happen...ever!
