and the MTV Family Come Together to Help Rebuild Seaside Heights

Gym Class Heroes with Oh Land and Phillip Phillips to Perform Live in Studio

People can Donate to Architecture for Humanity’s Seaside Rebuilding Fund at RestoretheShore.MTV.com,

on Indiegogo.com, by Texting SHORE to 85944, or by purchasing the MTV “Restore the Shore” T-shirt on Shop.MTV.com or at Modell’s Sporting Goods

NEW YORK – November 14, 2012 – MTV (a division of Viacom Inc., NASDAQ: VIAB) today announced that dozens of stars, artists and organizations have joined in the effort to #restoretheshore and help rebuild Seaside Heights, New Jersey – the heart of the Jersey Shore, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  Generations have grown up enjoying the iconic Seaside boardwalk, but with the city condemned and many local businesses and homes ruined, Seaside needs urgent help to get back on its feet.  Thankfully, some of entertainment’s biggest stars are answering the call to action and will be part of MTV’s “Restore the Shore,” a one-hour fundraising special to air live at 11pm ET (tape-delayed PT) on MTV, MTV.com, MTV mobile and MTV radio on Thursday, November 15th.

From 4 pm until midnight (ET) on Thursday, the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” – as well as stars from other top MTV shows including “Awkward,” “Teen Wolf,” “Teen Mom,” “The Challenge,” and “The Real World” – will be live in MTV’s Times Square studio, calling donors to thank them for giving.  Unlike a conventional telethon where viewers call in and hope to speak with a celebrity, MTV’s “Restore the Shore” will feature stars personally calling individuals who donate via Indiegogo at RestoretheShore.MTV.com or make a $10 donation by texting SHORE to 85944.  All funds raised will go to Architecture for Humanity, an internationally recognized non-profit that led rebuilding efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.  They are now setting out to help rebuild the famed boardwalk, local businesses and homes in Seaside Heights ravaged by the storm.

“Restore the Shore” will feature live performances from Gym Class Heroes (with special guest Oh Land) performing the comeback anthem “The Fighter,” as well as “American Idol” Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips performing his stirring hit “Home.”

Stars contributing messages of support who will be featured on-air include One Direction, Alicia Keys, Mac Miller, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Pharrell, P!nk, Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian, Ne-Yo, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, No Doubt, fun., Carly Rae Jepsen, Swizz Beats, the Jonas Brothers, Ludacris, All Time Low, Sean Kingston, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly of “The Voice,” Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” Jay Leno, the cast of “The View,” Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Wendy Williams and many more.

Everyone who donates $25 or more will receive an exclusive MTV “Restore the Shore” song bundle, which includes 30 songs from the past six seasons of “Jersey Shore.”  Online crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.com has created a special campaign donation page (RestoretheShore.Indiegogo.com) for MTV’s “Restore the Shore,” and in conjunction with PayPal.com, will be waiving 100% of the fees on all donations.  The MTV Shop, as well as select Modell’s locations in NY, NJ, PA, DE and modells.com, will be selling the official MTV “Restore the Shore” t-shirt for $20, with all net proceeds going to Architecture for Humanity’s Seaside rebuilding fund.  In addition, Viacom will donate $100,000 to Architecture for Humanity in support of the “Restore the Shore” fund, as part of its $1 million Viacommunity pledge to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

“We’re very proud to be partnering with the cast of ‘Jersey Shore’, 495 Productions, Architecture for Humanity, some of the biggest names in entertainment and our audience to help rebuild Seaside Heights – a community that is dear to MTV and urgently needs assistance,” said Stephen Friedman, President, MTV.

For the fundraising and rebuilding effort, MTV is partnering with Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization that provides design and construction services to communities in need. The organization has created a “Restore the Shore” fund to collect donations that will be principally directed toward the rebuilding of the Seaside Heights boardwalk – the commercial artery of the community – as well as supporting the rebuilding efforts of in-need businesses and residents in Seaside. Architecture for Humanity has been helping communities rebuild after natural disasters for more than a decade, including major efforts in Biloxi and New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, and in Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010.

About Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has earned herself millions of devoted fans thanks to her feisty, straight-talking lyrics. Clarkson’s hits such as “Miss Independent,” “Since U Been Gone,”  “Walk Away,” “Never Again,” and now “Mr. Know It All,” are bold empowerment anthems, which she sings to the fullest with her soulful, powerhouse voice.

 

As is well known by now, Clarkson first appeared on the public’s radar in 2002 during the first season of AMERICAN IDOL. Of course, Clarkson won and went on to become an international pop icon, selling over 20 million albums worldwide and notching nine Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

About Bruno Mars

Singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Bruno Mars feels most at home when he’s performing. Born to a musical family in Honolulu, HI, Mars practically was raised on the stage, due to his father, a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn, having organized a Vegas-style revue that featured the entire family, including his mother, a vocalist.

 

As soon as he graduated high school, Mars left Hawaii for Los Angeles with dreams of launching his career as a performer. Those dreams got put on hold, however, when The Smeezingtons, the songwriting/production team he founded with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine, suddenly took off. The trio has crafted major hits for a diverse roster of talent, including Flo Rida’s “Right Round”, Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”, and Brandy’s “Long Distance.”

 

With the 2010 release of his debut album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” Mars has gone on to become an international star. He has sold 30 million singles worldwide, and was honored with a place on the 2011 Time 100 list. For more information, visit www.brunomars.com.
