The 21-year-old singer announced the launch of The Shawn Mendes Foundation on Wednesday. For a long time, I’ve wanted to find a way to amplify the causes that my fans care deeply about, and to further help them make their voices heard, Shawn Mendes, via Instagram. With that, I’m so excited to announce the launch of @ShawnFoundation, to support causes that are important to my fans and our generation, Shawn Mendes, via Instagram. I will work alongside my fans to help provide them with a platform and the means to give back and take action. For more information, head to ShawnMendesFoundation.org x, Shawn Mendes, via Instagram. The foundation will take on two campaigns to start: SickKids and REVERB. SickKids helps with child health research and REVERB is an environmental nonprofit. After Mendes announced his new foundation, fans rushed to the website to learn more and caused the site to crash.
