Selena Gomez Takes on an Official Role with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation
Selena Gomez has been named the ambassador to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF), the non-profit organization dedicated to helping seriously ill and injured children. Seacrest revealed Gomez’ new involvement on his radio show, “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest,” on April 20, 2012.
Gomez helped out the charity in July 2011, appearing at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with Seacrest as he hosted a broadcast from the hospital’s multimedia center installed by RSF. She’ll continue helping and inspiring sick children in her official capacity as ambassador.
“From the beginning, I could tell that Selena really understood our mission. I’m so grateful that she’s decided to take on this larger role with us, joining our efforts to bring hope and spirit to seriously ill and injured kids,” said Seacrest, founder and chairman of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. “With her as ambassador, we will continue to expand our programs at children’s hospitals throughout the country.”
“The Ryan Seacrest Foundation does such incredible work and I’m thrilled to be a part of it,” said Gomez. “I’m particularly excited about helping to launch a media center in my hometown of Dallas at the Children’s Medical Center and giving back to the kids there.”
The foundation provides young patients with an opportunity to engage in activities related to radio, television and new media, ranging from broadcasting like a disc jockey and playing their favorite songs to watching live artists perform and interviewing celebrities.
