Getting outside Salem.

“Days of 0ur Lives” fan favorite Kristian Alfonso (Hope) can be seen in the entertaining new public service announcements. She appears in a spot created by the Ad Council and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation on behalf of their national GED Achievement campaign. The campaign is designed to encourage high school dropouts to earn a GED diploma.

The PSAs draw a humorous parallel between daytime drama and the drama of not having GED credentials. For more information, visit AD Council. You can also see General Hospital’s John York in the ad series. Take a look at Alfonso’s video and let know what you think.

Make sure that you haven’t missed any of the action by checking out’s Days of our Lives news room.
