ABC’s “Day of Giving” is a network-wide telethon to raise money for the American Red Cross and support their efforts to help the communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. The fundraising begins in the early morning hours Thursday and will continue throughout the day on all local ABC stations, Freeform, Disney Channel, ESPN, A&E, History, Lifetime, ABC Radio, and Radio Disney. Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC, said, “With this ‘Day of Giving’ across all our networks and platforms, the men and women of Disney|ABC, ESPN and the A+E Networks are answering the call to stand up and support the communities hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey. In 2012, we rallied to support relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy, helping raise more than $18 million dollars. Now, we stand alongside the residents of Texas and the Gulf states who are battling the floods and devastation of Harvey.”
