Throughout my life I’ve visited numerous hospitals across the country that have the weighty task of caring for children facing life-threatening illness or injury. I have consistently been amazed by the courage of the children and their families and in awe of the tireless dedication and brilliance of the doctors and hospital staff. As a result of my experiences at these hospitals, I wanted to have a more lasting impact on children’s lives.
Over a dinner with my family, I decided I wanted to create a foundation that would lift the spirits of hospitalized kids. Along with my parents and my sister, I created the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF), a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education focused initiatives. Our foundation’s first initiative is to build broadcast media centers, named Seacrest Studios, in children’s hospitals across the country, allowing for patients to interact with a state-of-the-art radio/TV studio and meet some of the biggest stars in entertainment.
The aim of Seacrest Studios is to contribute positively to the healing process for children and their families during their stay (and visits) to the children’s hospitals. I have heard from many families that the studios are an uplifting distraction from the difficulties these children face on a daily basis, and I am so thrilled to see how positively they have been received by the hospital community.
My family’s goal is to continue to build these studios across the nation (and even one day the world) to reach as many children as possible. Thank you for taking the time to look around our website and learn more about what we do at RSF. We are truly grateful for your support.
