Stranger Things season 2 stars continue to entertain their fans who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming installment.

Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) recently launched his own charity campaign to raise awareness on Cleidocranial Dysplasia. For his CCD Smiles campaign, a Ghostbusters-inspired t-shirt is up for sale.

Matarazzo shared on Instagram a photo of him wearing the t-shirt that has the signature logo of Ghostbusters. However, instead of a ghost, Dustin’s caricature is used in the logo. Matarazzo’s t-shirt is available for two weeks only and for $24.99 each. The merchandise is available here.

The Stranger Things star said all of the proceeds of his t-shirts will go to CCD Smiles for the benefit of people who have Cleidocranial Dysplasia like him. Matarazzo suffers from Cleidocranial Dysplasia, which primarily affects the development of bones and teeth.

Matarazzo has been vocal about his disability. He revealed in an interview with BBC 5 Live that he has been passed over for some roles in the past due to it.

Dustin has the same condition as Matarazzo in Stranger Things. In the upcoming season, Matarazzo revealed that his character will be having a new companion – a polliwog-like pet.

Other Stranger Things Season 2 Young Stars

Matarazzo is not the only one getting busy these days. Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) joined Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie on stage during the band’s performance at the Madison Square Garden in New York City recently, Billboard reported.

Before he hopped on the stage, Schnapp also shared a photo of him on Twitter. He hilariously captioned the photo:

“I look like I just saw the demogorgon.”

It was a reunion for the young actor and the band. Schnapp previously starred in the Panic! at the Disco’s L.A. Devotee music video. When the video was released in September, Schnapp tweeted that he will definitely watch the band’s performance in NYC.

In the second season of Stranger Things, showrunner Matt Duffer teased Schnapp’s character will experience some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder due to his experience at the Upside Down.

Meanwhile, Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) recently appeared at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, Washington. The 13-year-old actress impressed fans when she appeared wearing a geometric blouse, ripped jeans and a cute cat ears headband.

During the Q&A part, Brown was asked how she perfected her American accent for the Netflix show. Brown, an English actress, revealed she watches Disney channel to practice her American accent.

All three young stars are confirmed to return next season. Stranger Things season 2 is set to premiere on October 31, 2017 with new characters too.
