Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Show Support for Sam Bradley—and Rural Tibetans

Celebuzz / May 3, 2009

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have already proven that they’re more than willing to support their musician friends.

But Saturday night they also did their part to improve the world while pursuing their music appreciation.

Pattinson and Stewart attended a concert by their pal Sam Bradley—a longtime musical collaborator of Pattinson’s who co-penned the song “Never Think” for the Twilight soundtrack—at Vancouver nightspot Richard’s on Richards last night.

As Bradley rocked the capacity crowd of 750, RPattz and K-Stew cheered him on from backstage, as they’ve tended to do while catching him play in Vancouver during the filming of the Twilight sequel New Moon.

The event—which also included sets by the Darcys and the Get Down—was a benefit concert for the Gewa Project, a charitable organization that works to improve living conditions of people living in rural Tibet. Among other things, Gewa Project provides furniture and supplies to an old-person’s home in Tibet. 

In addition to the funds that were raised for the Gewa Project, Sam—who was introduced to the project through a friend and hopes to continue working with them—kept with the spirit of the event and pre-arranged to honor all of his personal guests by making an additional contribution to the organization, in all of their names, as a further showing of both his generosity and of their support.

Nice to know that Pattinson and Stewart are willing to come out and support a good cause a well as enjoy some tunes from a buddy. Clearly, the young Twilight stars represent a new breed of vampires—ones who feel compelled to give something back when they’re not draining the blood of the soon-to-be undead.
