When the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) was founded, there was tremendous enthusiasm among those who were involved in the process of bringing its concept to fruition. The enthusiastic concept for RSF began from a casual conversation between Ryan Seacrest and family members during dinner. Ryan’s idea was to have a segmented media center to inspire children while they’re receiving life-saving treatment at pediatric hospitals.
The RSF builds multimedia centers for pediatric hospitals all across the nation. The foundation is dedicated to inspiring youth, as well as providing knowledge about the multimedia and the entertainment industry. Through education initiatives, the RSF connects with children of all ages. The goal is to have an atmosphere for them to explore the aspects of radio, television, and new media outlets while experiencing a positive pivot from their healing process. The multimedia centers, named Seacrest Studios, encourage optimism, stimulating excitement and an uplifting environment for both the children and their families. The fun concept has been a welcoming experience. In 2016, the RSF received the Cynopsis Social Good Award.
According to Ryan, in June, the RSF received support from the actor, Blake Cooper, who visited Seacrest Studios at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Both Ryan and Blake share a bond because they’re both Atlanta natives. Blake shared his time with the children and parents in the Seacrest Studio, while actively participating in the learning and education process. He also shared a private screening with the children of his upcoming movie, “Measure of a Man,” in which he plays the part of a bullied teen.
Ryan Seacrest, the TV and radio show host, who also is the Chairman of the foundation, has been a public figure for more than a decade; however, the RSF is a commitment that he chose above the celebrity nature of public success. Ryan has put a spotlight on pediatric treatment and the need to bring a sense of normalcy to the lives of children, while they’re going through the unimaginable. The RSF recently opened its 10th multimedia center, with aspirations to expand worldwide. The foundation also offers an eNewsletter for people to continue their interest in knowing updates and volunteer information. For more updates, visit Ryan’s Twitter account here.
