“Think It Up” Telethon LIVE STREAM!
The first-ever “Think It Up” telethon takes place on Friday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. Watch below!
Created by the Entertainment Industry Foundation, the event will draw attention to the importance of the student-teacher relationship, and call for donations for crowdfunding education projects. The goal is to “inspire public school students in grades 7-12 to pursue their passions through student-powered, teacher-led learning projects.”
More than a dozen stars will be on hand at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport in California. The live, hour-long program will highlight worthy education causes, and include everything from comedy sketches to music performances. Justin Bieber will be one of the performers, along with Kacey Musgraves.
Among the stars slated to participate are Kristen Bell, Stephen Colbert, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ryan Seacrest, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Matthew McConaughey. Additional celebrities who have signed up include Austin Mahone, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Joe Manganiello, Seth Meyers, Terry Crews, Jason Bateman, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Big Sean and Taylor Lautner.
The telethon will air on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX, much like the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s other well-known telethon, Stand Up To cancer. It all gets underway at 8 p.m. Eastern. **The live stream has now ended. Watch Justin Bieber’s performance here.**
