The Hollywood Reporter celebrates celebrity philanthropists in their latest issue. Covering the magazine is Selena Gomez along with Ryan Seacrest, who fronts his family-run non-profit, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The organization’s mission is to build broadcast centers in children’s hospital so patients can learn about the radio and television industries.
“Parents would often say that their kids ran out of things to do,” Seacrest told THR. “They would get bored essentially being in their beds, so I tried to think of what we could do to create more activities in the hospital that didn’t leave anyone out.”
Selena Gomez has been working with Seacrest as the ambassador of the foundation since last year.
“To be able to escape their everyday struggles and have fun can make all the difference in the world,” she said of the organization. “Ryan makes the experience so uplifting and encouraging, even though the kids are going through such a difficult time.”
