Kelsey Thacker Helps Clay Aiken’s Foundation


Kelsey Thacker is a sophomore at the University of Alabama, Huntsville.  She wants to become a lawyer and loves to write.  She also is someone who sees a problem and does what she can to help.

She read about the Bubel/Aiken Foundation on the book jacket in Clay Aiken’s CD. “[I] felt that the aim of the charity was a very worthwhile one,” said Thacker.  After visiting the internet site of the foundation, she decided that she had to do something to help. She decided to raise money for the organization.  After much research, she read how others were collecting empty ink cartridges for cash for the foundation.  Kelsey thought that a college was a great place to collect the cartridges as computer printers are used all the time by students and faculty.

Kelsey placed collection boxes in the lobbies of some of the classroom buildings and in some of the Residence Halls.  She also placed a box in the University Lobby Center to make it easy for off campus people to drop off the cartridges.

Kelsey knows a great deal about The Bubel/Aiken Foundation and hopes that she will be able to help with this project.  She also suggests that others might want to start their own fundraiser for the foundation.

Kelsey seems to be the kind of young lady that would make Clay Aiken proud.  He is lucky to have her on his team.

    Wonderful story about Kelsey Thacker, as she joins Clay Aiken and TBAF to make a difference! A college campus is ideal for collecting empty ink cartridges.

    Have a great weekend!


  3. That is indeed a very nice article. Glad we have people like her to help out. I guess that was a good idea to put that on the CD looks like it worked.
