    Stan Walker Named Sony Foundation Ambassador

    Australian Idol 7.0 Stan Walker has been named Ambassador of the Sony Foundation.

    The Sony Foundation raises money invests in the needs of the community and is currently committed to raising funds to build specialised cancer wards for 15-30 year olds.

    Walker is close to the cause. His family has a history of the disease. “This cause is so close to my heart,” says Stan in a statement. “Out of my grandmother’s 22 children, 18 have died from cancer. My cousin passed away from cancer last year, he was only 17. It was heartbreaking and the fact he was sharing a ward with old people made it worse. I feel privileged to be able to support the Sony Foundation in this important campaign.”

    Stan plans to use his newfound fame for the benefit of the great cause through the Sony Foundation. Dr Louise Messara, Executive Director, Sony Foundation, said “we are delighted to welcome Stan to the Sony Foundation family as an official ambassador. He captivated the public not only with his enormous talent but also with his big heart, honesty and colourful character. In many ways, Stan is the embodiment of what Sony Foundation stands for.”

    Stan’s fans can get involved with the ‘Buy-a-Builder’ campaign. At buyabuilder.com.au you can buy a virtual builder to help build a real cancer ward.

    Walker won Australia Idol just two weeks ago. His first single ‘Black Box’ debuted at number two on the ARIA chart this week. His album ‘Introducing Stan Walker’ will be released next week.

    the Wharf4Ward event that the Idols attended was an initiative of the Sony Foundation and the article can be found here--> http://www.sonyfoundation.org.au/news.php#Famous%20Five%20-%20Idols%20Give%20Generously

    at the moment all donations starting from $5 to $100 at the buyabuilder site includes a $5 to $20 voucher for bandit.fm

    I think it's great that Stan's the ambassador for this cause. I seriously wouldn't have known about this if not for Stan, so he's already raising awareness.

    anybody thinking about donating???

    think it is great I remember watching a documentary when I lived in NZ about one Maori family which had in each generation most of the females got ovarian cancer and this family was one of the ones in the world which was put in a database and researched on why genetically it happened. So Stan would be in a family very similiar to this one I saw in a docu. it seems sometimes the cancer strain gets stronger not weaker in families

    Cancer is a shocker...it seems to be everywhere and everyone has been affected in some way or another. Stan's generous and playful nature will be a huge advantage to the ambassador role - awesome stuff Stan!
