Network Giants Come Together to Stand Up To Cancer

An announcement was made this morning by the evening news anchors that all three networks - ABC, NBC and CBS are coming together to stand up to cancer. This September 5 at 8p all three networks will host a one hour specialized program on cancer to educate, create awareness and raise funds as well as appearances from some of Hollywood's finest.

Stand Up To Cancer is a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and was established by a group of media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders, whose lives have all been affected by cancer in significant ways. Stand Up To Cancer is bringing industry resources -- people, as well as mediums such as television and the web -- to bear in the fight against cancer as never before.

All fund generated will go towards various forms of cancer research. There are various ways to donate on your cell phone, on-line - http://www.standup2cancer.org, through sponsorship, by joining a team, or through a very cool interactive tribute site call Constellation where you can donate $1 or more to add a star in the name of a loved one to the constellation.

We love it when the networks play nice and come together to make a positive impact in the world!
