Famous People Care!™ Day continues at Defamer with the announcement that Nick Carter, late of the Backstreet Boys and of having sexual relations with L.A.

Really, that's all we've got on this one, as the random pairing of obscure cause and D-list personage should provide more than enough entertainment without further commentary.

But should you wonder what a press release announcing such an unprecedented partnership between aquatic-mammal-in-crisis and boy-bander-in-decline looks like, have at it after the jump:
