How awesome is Demi Lovato?

The down-to-earth Disney star passed on legal partying and opted to volunteer as she rang in her 21st birthday this week.

She is currently working with Me to We's partner, Free The Children, in the Maasai Mara Region of Kenya. The "X Factor" judge is visiting communities with friends and helping to build a new school through the Free The Children charity.

The Maasai people herd several animals, one of which Demi generously received as a special birthday present!

Her trip sounds incredible -- hats off to her for giving back to such an amazing cause. Happy birthday, Demi!
