Even after all of Seacrest’s accomplishments him and his family came up with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) over dinner one night. The RSF is an organization that is non-profit 501(c)(3) who’s mission is to give inspiration to the youth of today through education and entertainment. Ryan Seacrest’s first goal is to build numerous broadcast media centers which will be named Seacrest Studios. Seacrest Studios will be within pediatric hospitals, this will allow patients to explore their creative via television, radio, and new media. RSF is hoping to lift the spirits of the children through their hospital stay, an uplifting spirit is definitely needed when going through an illness. Seacrest and family believes access to multimedia involvements will do just that.
According to nytimes.com, RSF works with local schools that gives students/patients with great experience through an internship program in programming, broadcasting, and operating multimedia center. The good thing is that patients who unable to physically participate can still get involved via watching through a closed-circuit network from their room TV screens. There is a plethora of great programs that are produced by the RSF Studios that the patients can be involved in and enjoy.
