Hollywood Promotes Volunteerism!


Hollywood Promotes Volunteerism!


The Entertainment Industry Foundation (or EIF, the leading Hollywood charity) has created a multi-year campaign called I PARTICIPATE to help make service and volunteerism a national priority.  The campaign will kick off with a week-long television event running from October 19 – 25.


During that week, America’s most-loved television shows on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and other broadcast networks will spotlight service through scripted programming, segments and Public Service Announcements with inspirational messages, and storylines about volunteerism.


The shows that will feature volunteerism during the week of Oct. 19 include:

  • ABC’s All My Children, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Brothers and Sisters, Castle, Cougar Town, Dancing With The Stars, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Flash Forward, General Hospital, Good Morning America, Grey’s Anatomy, Hank, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Modern Family, One Life To Live, Private Practice, The Forgotten, The Middle, The View, and Ugly Betty.
  • CBS’ Cold Case, Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Gary Unmarried, Ghost Whisperer, and Numb3rs.
  • FOX’s America’s Most Wanted, Bones, Brothers, COPS, So You Think You Can Dance, and ‘Til Death.
  • NBC’s 30 Rock, Access Hollywood, Community, Days of Our Lives, Heroes, Parks and Recreation, The Biggest Loser, The Office, and Today Show.
