'Late Show' host Stephen Colbert is turning awkward teen photos into lifesavers. Last week, Colbert launched the #PuberMe campaign to raise money for Puerto Rico after the island territory was devastated by Hurricane Maria.
Every time a celebrity tweets out an embarrassing photo from their pubescent years, Colbert will donate $1,000 to the relief effort through the AmeriCone Dream Fund — a charity named after the Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor created for the late-night host.
"I issued the challenge last Wednesday, and I'm happy to say that — unlike my facial hair at 14 — the results have been coming in strong," Colbert said yesterday. Here are the best #PuberMe pics so far.
