Larry King Oil Spill Telethon
CNN’s Larry King will host a two-hour, “two-screen” telethon for the victims of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help, airing on CNN’s Larry King Live Monday, June 21 @ 8PM EDT, will feature guest stars Lenny Kravitz, Justin Bieber, Chelsea Handler, Ryan Seacrest, Kathy Griffin, Cameron Diaz, Ian Somerhalder, and Jenny McCarthy, the network said in a statement Friday.
The telethon will raise funds for non-profit organizations United Way, The National Wildlife Federation, and The Nature Conservancy, which are providing aid to the people and wildlife hurt by the oil spill along the US Gulf Coast region.
The “second screen” aspect of the telethon, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, involves the use of computers, where viewers can participate via social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
