Jordan Fisher On Christmas And The Holiday Pets Campaign!
Jordan Fisher is a singer and actor best known for his role as Seacat on Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie. This holiday season, Jordan is raising money for the Humane Society of the United States through the Holiday Pets campaign!
We spoke with Jordan to find out all about his amazing campaign and contest, plus learn about his favorite holiday traditions, get the inside scoop on Teen Beach 2 and more!
Jordan Fisher teamed up with the Humane Society this year for the Holiday Pets Campaign, asking friends and family to forget the gifts, and instead make a donation to help animals.
"I've always loved animals," Jordan told us. "I've grown up with dogs my entire life, and adopted one of my own a few years ago."
The lucky pup is a pug named Sora, who's about to turn 4 years old.
"It is easily the best decision I've ever made!" he said.
The holidays are a time for giving, so Jordan decided that this year, he was going to give back in a major way to a cause that means a lot to him.
"Through this campaign, I wanted to raise awareness and encourage people to adopt pets, since so many people reach for puppies and kittens this time of year," he said. "Therefore, the Humane Society seemed like the perfect fit."
There are a number of reasons that families should adopt pets and dogs rather than buying them from stores, Jordan explained.
"It's easy to fall in love with puppies," he said, "but it's just as easy to fall in love with dogs that have no home of their own. All these amazing creatures want is to love and be loved. So many incredible animals miss out on an amazing life because they never got a fair shot at it. I'd love to see that change."
But having a pet isn't all about cuteness and cuddles. It's also a huge responsibility.
"Be prepared for the commitment," he said. "Your life will change quite a bit…but in all of the best ways possible. I STILL get excited to get home to see my boy. All he wants to do is spend time, play, snuggle, eat, and love. It's so enriching."
This year, Jordan has also been teaming up with fellow Disney stars to do a series of amazing holiday covers on YouTube.
"I'm insanely lucky to have so many incredibly talented people in my life that I can call friends," he said. "It just so happens that these guys are all in the Disney family as well! It's always fun to have an excuse to hang out and jam."
We asked Jordan if he has any favorite family traditions for the holidays!
"My family and I have quite a bit, but my all-time favorite is waking up on Christmas morning, pouring a cup of coffee, singing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus, opening gifts with How The Grinch Stole Christmas on the TV, then rounding out the day with the ABC Christmas Parade, amazing food and basketball games!" he answered.
Jordan also appears in the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Teen Beach 2. He was quite secretive when we asked him if there was anything he could reveal about the film.
"Hmmmmmm…" he said. "Well…I do get to sing a bit."
We absolutely can't wait to find out more about Teen Beach 2 as the summer approaches! Be sure to check out Jordan's incredible holiday covers here, and watch Jordan and McClain sing "Winter Wonderland" below! Share your favorite holiday campaigns and more with us at Sweety High!
