Soap opera stars team up with Red Cross.
Several stars from “General Hospital” are donating their time today to help take calls for the Red Cross as part of ABC’s “Day of Giving” to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief in Texas, Soaps.com has learned. Billy Miller (Jason Morgan) and Ashley Jones (Parker Forsyth), both who hail from Texas, will be joined in taking donations by Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos), Ryan Paevey (Nathan West), Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), Nicholas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Scorpio-Drake), Donnell Turner (Curtis Ashford), Brytni Sarpy (Valerie Spencer), Anthony Montgomery (Andre Maddox), Vinessa Antoine (Jordan Ashford), and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller). The stars are answering the phones at the ABC studios in LA from 3:00 PM until 6:30 PM PT. You can call 1-877-KABC7-LA to make a donation. You can also use your cell phone to text HARVEY to 90999 to give a $10 donation to the Red Cross, call 1-855-999-GIVE, or visit the Red Cross.
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.”
Extremely proud of the GH cast for pitching in to help those in need. #GH
