Now to be honest, I’m not much of a TV watcher (except for “The Office”), but I know I’m in the minority on this one.
However, I still give a huge “thumbs up” to Hollywood and the TV industry for jumping on the “let’s encourage everyone to volunteer” bandwagon. According to this article, “For seven straight days starting on October 19, volunteers will be the toast of Hollywood.” Characters and hosts from over 60 national TV shows will be shown volunteering throughout the week, known as “iParticipate,” to encourage a nationwide participation in community service.
Fans will also have to opportunity to nominate different organizations to be featured on over 60 TV shows, as well as make their pitch for who should receive a $5,000 donation. If you feel strongly about seeing Dr. McDreamy donate blood, or want to see Tina Fey teach Alec Baldwin (à la “30 Rock”) CPR, sound your voice here!
