Kelly Monaco and Co. Give Back





Three of Daytime TV’s biggest stars – Susan Lucci of "AMC", Anthony Geary and Kelly Monaco of "GH"- will travel to Kenya next month with Feed the Children, an international, non-profit relief organization that supports more than 100,000 children in Kenya’s slums. The three will document their journey with their own cameras as they aid Feed the Children founders Larry and Frances Jones in delivering food and items to the needy and accompany them on visits to local schools as well as an abandoned baby center built by Feed the Children.

Part of the footage they shoot while over there will air as a segment entitled “Daytime Gives Back” during the Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, airing Sunday, August 30th at 8:00p.m. ET/PT on the CW Television Network. All My Children will also incorporate the trip in to their show, in a yet to be determined storyline involving Lucci’s character Erica Kane.

Lucci, Monaco and Geary will be traveling to Kenya with other celebrities including Montel Williams, Devon Werkheiser (Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide"), Christopher Massey, Kyle Massey and Erik Estrada to shoot a full length documentary that will be produced and distributed by Emmy Award winning production company Associated Television International. The documentary will provide the American public with an up-close and personal look at Kenya and its wonderful people thru the eyes of these popular celebrities.

Feed The Children, founded in 1979 by Larry and Frances Jones, is a Christian, international, nonprofit relief organization that delivers food, medicine, clothing and other necessities to individuals, children and families who lack these essentials due to famine, war, poverty or natural disasters. Since its founding, the organization has reached out to help children and their families in all 50 states and 118 countries around the globe.

Jamey thanks for covering this. Its projects like this that make me like La Lucci and KeMo even more. (I still have my snit on about TG forming a pay alliance with SBu and MB when he didnt offer that same loyalty to GF....yeah I know I shouldt LOL) but such a generous and wonderful thing these stars are doing.

glad they are giving back. but i disagree, is kelly manaco one of their 3 'biggest stars?" She hasn't put in the time that geary and lucci have. where's erica slezak or strasser for third?

Oh boy..now the hating is really stretching LOL.

C'mon this is a great project so lets be positive. Its nice to see all 3 doing this and yes, they were picked because of they are 3 of the biggest...not THE 3 biggest necessarily, but 3 of the biggest in terms of being a lead on their respective shows and being well known and respected in the genre and out.

Jamey - me likey the big sis - little sis dynamic too. And I cant wait for them to click their fingers and activate their wonder twin powers to save Alexis. I am glad that gh is finally acknowledging the family dynamic on the show - showing mac more with robin and maxie, the Cs, the Qs and now the Davis/Cassadine clan.

I'm just wondering why an OLTL actor/actress wasn't picked? A representative from all three would have been nice.

Kelly actually works on the show most of the year, that's more than I can say for Tony Geary. He is the biggest waste of money at ABC Daytime at this point. Bleh
