This past week, Lea visited New York in celebration of the March 4th release of her debut album Louder! Have you downloaded the album yet? Throughout the week, Lea performed her hit single “Cannonball” on various talk shows and met fans at various CD signings! Were you able to go? We were! Stay tuned for our story.. in case you missed it, look below to catch up on what Lea was up to this past week - it was a lot! Goes to show how much of a hard worker she is!
We are happy to announce our next fundraiser! Thanks to your wonderful suggestions through Montourage Unite’s recent survey, we have decided to dedicate our next fundraiser to Chrysalis! Wait, there’s more. This fundraiser will be a joint effort with both Bright Ambitions and Montourage Unite, our non-profit community honoring Lea Michele. By combining these two communities into one fundraiser, we will be able to raise so much more!
Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment. The organization has been supported by Cory and Lea throughout the years. The annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball was one of the final events Cory attended, which Lea also attended. It is easy to say that Chrysalis was a very special cause close to Cory and Lea’s hearts.
Our current goal is $2,000! From previous efforts, we have already raised a total of $1,295! Montourage, “Leanatics”, fans, supporters, lovers of charity, givers, let’s all come together to make this the most successful project ever! Stay tuned for upcoming giveaways, trends, and projects. Montourage Unite is back and striving for bigger and better things!

"Puppy mills are large-scale, inhumane, commercial dog breeding operations that mass-produce puppies for sale through pet stores, over the Internet, and directly to the public. It’s not just breeders that are governed by New York’s pet dealer regulations — it’s pet stores, too. New York’s pet stores support predominantly large-scale, out-of-state puppy mills. Fortunately, the New York Legislature recently passed a game-changing bill that allows local governments to regulate puppy mills and pet stores. Now, Governor Cuomo’s signature is needed to make this legislation into law."
Earlier this week, Lea Michele teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States to urge NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to sign a bill that would give local governments the ability to regulate state-wide puppy mills. Lea’s efforts worked in record time!
"As a lifelong New Yorker and a recent dog owner, I couldn’t be more delighted that our great, progressive state has considered large-scale commercial puppy mills—breeding factories where female dogs are constantly impregnated and forced to live in cages in their own excrement—an unnecessary cruelty that deserves local oversight.” - Lea Michele
Within a day of sending her letter, Governor Cuomo has officially signed legislation that cracks down on puppy mills in New York.
Lea Michele’s single "Cannonball" will premiere and join the iTunes charts on December 10th. Her upcoming album Louder will always be available for pre-order. Show your love, support, and excitement, and join the fandom’s united Twitter trend Get Louder for Lea!

Bright Ambitions is shining a light on breast cancer and the symbolic color of pink this month. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

- One in eight women, in the United States, will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
- Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women in the United States.
- Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.
- Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,150 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 410 will die each year.
