JoJo Wright Launches 'Make It Wright With JoJo'

Pop Culture Media Personality JoJo Wright Pledges Charity Involvement Throughout the Summer

LOS ANGELES, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- JoJo Wright, host of the nationally syndicated "JoJo on the Radio," announced today the launch of Make it Wright with JoJo, a summer-long initiative in which he will lend a hand to a different cause every weekday this summer, beginning Tuesday, July 6.  Starting today, JoJo is officially asking his friends, fans, followers and listeners, as well as any organizations looking for his support, to get in touch via Twitter and Facebook to suggest deserving causes.

"I was thinking about getting involved with one charity this summer," said Wright, "and then I thought, 'why pick just one?' There are a crazy number of organizations out there doing great things, and I want to help.  I'm just one guy, but I'm looking forward to making whatever difference I can, and inspiring others to do the same."  

The daily installments of Make it Wright with JoJo will require anywhere from a few minutes to an entire day of JoJo's time.  Whether he is heading down to the local food bank, tweeting a link to an upcoming event, or jumping out of an airplane to raise awareness for cancer research, JoJo's goal is to lead by example, and ultimately encourage people to give back to their community – even if it means just taking a few minutes a day to help support an organization doing great things.  

If each of JoJo's more than 25,000 Twitter followers were to spend just five minutes of one day doing something for their community, that would amount to more than 2080 hours of service, or the equivalent of one person working full-time (40 hours/week) for an entire year.  

Make it Wright with JoJo is kicking off with a diverse schedule of activities and partnerships including:

  • The DoSomething.org Awards airing on VH1 July 19, which recognize the best young world-changers, 25 and under.
  • Tweeting about items from the Television Academy Foundation's Primetime Emmy Season Online Auction that begins July 22 to benefit the Foundation's educational programs.
  • Leap for Life for LIVESTRONG – JoJo will take his commitment to service to new heights by jumping from a plane on August 22 to help support Lance Armstrong's cancer charity.

Though JoJo won't be able to do everything, there are still plenty of unclaimed days in Make it Wright with JoJo, so he is asking for his fans and worthy organizations around the world to tell him what great causes need his attention.  Anyone interested in JoJo's support is invited to get in touch by making a comment on his Facebook page, replying to @JoJoWright on Twitter with the hash tag #MakeitWright, and encouraging their friends and supporters to do the same.
