So, you may or may not have heard about this cause called Japan Calls
. Some of your favorite celebrities may have been tweeting about the project lately. If you have no idea what it is, I'll tell you a little more about it. If you have
, well this is just a refresher course for you! ;)
, who are actually very good friends of mine, started this project. With the recent devastation that has hit Japan recently (today they had another earthquake...it's all so devastating :(), a lot of people have been wanting to help, but they aren't sure how. It started with an idea and Japan Calls
This is their objective:
"Our goal is to use the voices of admired entertainers as motivation to get others to donate to a worthy cause. We will hold open auctions for people to bid in receiving a personalized 15-second voice recording from a celebrity of their choice. (anything more/less is dependent on circumstances/willingness of the voice)"
In the past couple of weeks, we have been trying our hardest to put the interest out there: tweeting celebs, writing on their fan pages, etc. It really has been a team effort. I have been helping out where I can to spread the word about this and it's grown beyond any of our expectations!!! We have generated an impressive list of confirmed entertainers. Some examples include Eliza Dushku, Kristen Bell, Mark Ruffalo, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jeremy Piven, Michael Urie, cast members from Queer as Folk, cast members from As The World Turns, Rick Fox, American Idol alums, Imogen Heap, Jay Brannan, Sia, The Veronicas
and many, many more! Please check this page
for the entire established list.
Bidding for this charity auction begins tomorrow, Monday, March 28th
and goes until Monday, April 4th at 11:59 PM EST
. It will last for a week. Please check japan_calls
