Happy Birthday to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation!

We are happy to announce that the Ryan Seacrest Foundation is a year old! We launched our first media center, named The Voice, one year ago and have received overwhelming support from the hospital community and celebrities like Selena Gomez, Joe Jonas and Cee Lo Green (just to name a few!) The mission of our organization is to enhance the quality of life for seriously ill and injured children. We do this by creating unique programs that use radio, television and new media to enlighten, entertain and educate.

The organization also works with local journalism schools and universities to train and educate students interested in broadcast media. In just one year, the foundation has launched two interactive media centers in children’s hospitals with plans to build more across the county. Currently The Voiceâ„ is located at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Foundation has received an amazing response from the children and families that have visited The Voice.These families have shared that the experiences their children have had in these centers are a positive distraction from their every day struggles.

Parents have commented on how much it means to them to see their child smile, whether it’s from meeting a celebrity, watching a live musical performance or getting to play DJ to the whole hospital.

Here's to many more birthdays (and smiles) to come!
