Celebrities Read The Night Before Christmas for Charity
From modern day Hercules Kevin Sorbo, comedian Carlos Mencia and NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson to American Idol Adam Lambert and the voice of Desperate Housewives Brenda Strong – all took a few minutes out of their day, wherever they happened to be, to share this story with our children "The Night Before Christmas". Each celebrity read a page from the beloved poem and some of them were able to autograph a copy of the book, which was auctioned (2009) eBay to benefit the National Foundation for Autism Research’s San Diego Autism Teachers Grant program. ( www.nfar.org ) Everyone donated time and talent so that 100% of the proceeds of the book auction went towards making a difference.
