tTo support the kids at home during March Break (and beyond), Survivor host Jeff Probst has joined the personalized video service Cameo to support charity.
There are a lot of young Survivor fans at home across the United States and Canada. The usual March Break week has been planned by parents for months, but few could expect the outbreak of the novel coronavirus spreading COVID-19 concerns, requiring local branches of government to require businesses, schools and general places where people gather in large crowds to shut down.
Thankfully, the show must go on at CBS, as Survivor: Winners at War episode 6 will air tonight at its usually scheduled time. For kids at home on their phones waiting for the show to come on and watch with their families at a safe social distance, the show’s host and executive producer, Jeff Probst, has extended himself outward in outreach to communicate with those who might be bored already.
As announced on his Twitter account, Jeff Probst has joined the Cameo video platform, with parents able to spend $20 to request the 20-year host to send a personalized video to their kids. As of press time, the service is currently unavailable, to which I suspect there is an abundance of requests in such a short time considering the number of responses already sent within the past few hours.
The No Kid Hungry website indicates the charity helps support the 1 in 7 children in America who go hungry each and every day, with more than 40 million meals already affected due to the coronavirus outbreak and the preventative measures. As indicated by the video, Jeff wants to extend the service on behalf of the kids, so please don’t clog up the lines if you’re an adult looking for a Cameo from Jeff Probst.
As noted, Cameo is not related to, nor has any affiliation with, No Kid Hungry, and only Jeff Probst’s portion of the fee will go to the charity. If you wish to donate to No Kid Hungry on your own, you can do so here.
