MTV gives a quick rundown on the charity work that Ashley, Jackson, Michael Welch, Christian Serratos and other Twilight stars are doing -- leveraging their newfound fame to support good causes.
Jackson Rathbone for Spencer Bell MemorialRead it all at MTV.
Many Twilighters are big fans of Jackson's band 100 Monkeys. But in addition to simply rocking out, the Monkeys have the higher purpose of paying tribute to a friend and musician who died of cancer in 2006. "We've been doing a lot of work to keep the Spencer Bell legacy alive through SpencerBellMemorial.com," Rathbone said. "Our friend was an amazing poet, artist, musician and lyricist, and we're putting out an album of his." That record, Live & Wasted, is now on sale, along with bracelets that help raise funds to fight cancer. "I can't tell you how many letters we get in our fan mail for the band that say how much Spencer has touched their lives and how they had family members pass away from cancer," Rathbone said. "We're lucky to have all his music. He's immortal. His soul is in his music, and that's one thing I firmly believe in as an artist. You're blessed to live eternally in your art."
