I couldn’t believe this was happening in America and I don’t think people understand how bad the situation is at our hospitals, so I decided to do something with my network, resources, and company.”

— Dominic Kalms, CEO of GVNG

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — GVNG and CharityBids announced a major celebrity campaign, partnering with Charitybuzz, to raise funds for critically needed medical supplies for hospitals around America. GVNG and CharityBids are auctioning off virtual experiences with celebrities, with funds going to EndCovid-19.org, a nonprofit project powered by GVNG, which is purchasing emergency medical equipment for hospitals. The campaign is live at http://ow.ly/CZfu50z2Psc with the first part of the auction ending on Friday, April 3, 2020.  
 
Celebrities who donated priceless opportunities for the auction campaign include David Blaine, Naomi Campbell, Jeremy Piven, Ne-Yo, Big Boi (OutKast), Val Kilmer, Katharine McPhee, George Lopez, Kenan Thompson, Christopher Mintz Platz, David Foster, Kristin Chenoweth, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mario Lopez, Pia Toscano, Lior Suchard, JaRule, Lolo Jones, Paul Greene, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Gloria Estefan, Oona Chaplin, Elon Gold, Harry Hamlin, Lisa Rinna and many more.
 
The team behind the campaign is headed up by Dominic Kalms, CEO of GVNG, alongside the CEO of CharityBids, Israel Schachter. 
 
Kalms co-founded the campaign after he received calls from doctors battling the COVID-19 virus, complaining about the dangerous conditions at hospitals, and the lack of medical equipment. Together Kalms and Israel reached out to their celebrity friends to get the campaign live, which is already generating tens of thousands of dollars in bids.
 
Kalms stated, “I couldn’t believe this was happening in America and I don’t think people understand how bad the situation is at our hospitals, so I decided to do something with my network, resources, and company. Now we have distributed our first grant to purchase Surgical Masks, KN95 Masks, Safety Goggles, Face Shields, and Medical Gowns for a large hospital in Washington State. We are already making an impact on the ground and helping doctors, nurses, and medical professionals across our country, and that is what I set out to do.”
 
Israel went on to say, “Everyone is sitting at home feeling helpless. Everyone would like to help. I figured this would be the best time to reach out to celebrity friends to ask for their support in this campaign. We are all in this together and must be there for the dedicated frontline doctors and nurses. I hope to continue adding more and more celebrities over the coming weeks so that we reach hospitals across the country.”
 
Charitybuzz President Ben Erwin adds, “The rapid, strategic response of EndCovid-19 and its coalition of partners is impressive and underscores why we exist as a digital auction platform for nonprofits. We’re grateful to be able to play a small role in helping so many generous individuals leverage their time for a vital cause.”
 
In addition to the celebrity auction, #FtheVirus bracelets are for sale at www.FtheVirus.org, where 100% of the profits are going to the same nonprofit EndCovid-19.org. Supporters are posting images of themselves on Instagram and Twitter wearing the bracelets with hash-tag #FtheVirus and tagging @FtheVirus as well. The campaign is sweeping across the country fast.

Survey Explores Viewpoints About Representation in Entertainment

Mary Pickford – Behind The Camera

Leah Rifkin – Award-Winning Author, Producer, and Director

Share your viewpoint with us: https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/qDb7cn

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the 92nd Annual Academy Awards in February, one could not help but notice the jabs against the “Academy” for the lack of female directors nominated for the Best Director Oscar. In fact, giving women and other underrepresented groups opportunities in front of and behind the camera is something that one rising film and television executive, Leah Rifkin, is tackling head on.

There is a survey which demonstrates the opinions people have about “Representation in Entertainment”. It is a strong starting point to a frank discussion about where the major motion picture and television industries are heading and how executives plan to create a more diverse working environment so that it becomes the new status-quo. This survey is part of research for a feature film that Leah is developing with her writing partner, Sonja Verpoort.

'America's Sweetheart' is a feature film biopic about an iconic figure in the history of film: Mary Pickford. Standing up for what is right, she demanded to be paid fairly for her work, which was unheard of at the time. But her growing success as an actress and her tenacity as a business-savvy producer came at a price. Mary Pickford had to use her passion and talent to achieve her goals, and as a result she helped build Hollywood from the ground up. She is a trailblazer that the world needs to be more aware of.

Leah Rifkin is the award-winning author of the book 'Beyond The Director’s Chair'. She is the director and executive producer of 'Out Of Frame', an award-winning edutainment web series for kids. Leah is the director of the short film, 'Dinner With Bernice', which was an Official Selection in the Toronto Shorts International Film Festival (Feb 2018). As a director and editor, Leah has also worked on multiple digital narratives, short films, YouTube series, and music videos that have earned millions of views.

Leah is an active member of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television and is a board member for the Independent Web Creators of Canada. Last year Leah was a finalist for the Netflix-Banff Diversity of Voices Initiative and was a runner-up for Armoza Formats’ Formagination Pitch Competition at Realscreen West.
