Oprah, Julia Roberts Among Celebrities Joining Together For 'Call To Unite' Coronavirus Fundraiser


Another massive group of celebrities is joining together to try to raise money for charity during the coronavirus outbreak.

This time, it's a 24-hour long livestream of hope starting Friday night, May 1st. It's called the "Call To Unite" and it's the brainchild of Special Olympics CEO Tim Shriver.

He's expecting everyone from former President George W. Bush, Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner, and Quincy Jones to take part. There are more than 200 names on that list.

"Throughout the event, global leaders will join citizens of the world in sharing practices, prayers, songs, reflections, and more to help you turn the pain of this moment into possibility for tomorrow," said the event's website.

All of participants will give lessons, or perform, or just talk to you, according to reports.

It's a fundraiser for Give Directly and the Points of Light Foundation.  

You'll be able to watch for 24 hours straight at Unite.US, or through its Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Twitch channels.
