- With the charity that he co-founded and his work as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, the National Inclusion Project, and other nonprofit organizations; it is clear that Clay is a very giving man. He uses his fame to promote worthy causes and concerns.
- Some Clay quotes about giving and his responsibilities as a celebrity(from Brainy Quotes); " I know this is going to sound cheesy and like I'm trying to be Miss America, but the most important responsibility a celebrity has is to set an example and be a role model." " I want to make sure that no matter how long I go through this, I don't fall into the trap of changing and modifying how I do things that aren't a positive example. I want to remain somebody that the entire family can listen to or watch." " In my ideal world, no child would suffer. Charitable instincts would prevail. There would be global acceptance of all different types of people." "It's important that I make a difference in some way. It's not necessarily how I make a difference, but I want to make sure that I do." "It's not the money. It's not the fame. It's the influence."
Thank you to all the Clack gatherers, and most of all, to Clay Aiken
