At this inaugural Inspire a Difference event, held at the Edison Ballroom in New York City, ID honored Emily Deschanel, Kristin Chenoweth and Brittany Snow for their work with the following charities:
- Five Acres: Emily Deschanel is a supporter of Five Acres, which works to prevent child abuse and neglect and treat and educate emotionally fragile and abused children and their families via residential and outreach programs.
- Maddie’s Corner: Inspired by her love for her dog Maddie, singer, actress and comedienne Kristin Chenoweth founded Maddie’s Corner, an organization that supports not only animals in need, but also emotionally abused and at-risk children through the sponsorship and creation of pet therapy programs.
- Love is Louder: Actress Brittany Snow founded Love is Louder to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. Individuals, communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a way to address issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression.
This event is part of ID’s greater Inspire a Difference advertising partnership with Glamour magazine to celebrate incredible women across the country whose dedication to victim’s rights and healing are inspiring others to create a change. A four-page advertorial spread in the September issue highlights the powerful work of Deschanel, Chenoweth and Snow, and their chosen charities. Additionally, ID and Glamour put out a national call-to-action for readers to nominate an everyday hero. One reader will be honored in Glamour’s December issue, and their chosen charity will receive a $5,000 donation from ID.
The campaign, launched in April, will continue throughout the year with domestic violence PSAs featuring various Investigation Discovery talents sharing resources and support for victims of domestic violence.
