Late actor Corey Haim’s fans are still as devoted to him now as they were during his “Dream a Little Dream” days.
Haim passed away in 2010 due to a combination of heart problems, pneumonia and blood flow issues, but continues to live on through his movies.
And to prove it, fans of his hits “The Lost Boys” and “License to Drive” launched a fundraising campaign to raise $40,000 by July 29 to cover the cost of a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Word has spread to the actor’s mom Judy, who is now backing the campaign.
Together, the group has arranged for an official to sign an application to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for the recognition, which doesn’t come cheap (unless you have a spare $30,000 plus an additional $10,000 in fees).
In a statement on the campaign group’s Web site, organizers say, “Corey Haim gave memories to a lot of people and a generation of film goers. His unfortunate death at a young age left behind a legacy of entertainment that should be recognized with the most basic of Hollywood awards."
