Ryan Seacrest Donates Paycheck to Charity

at . Comments

Ryan Seacrest will be hosting Idol Gives Back tomorrow night. But his bank account won't know it.

The American Idol host has handed over his paycheck for the evening.

A source close to Seacrest told People Magazine that he wanted to show fans that he was serious about the cause. We think it's a great example from which others can learn a lot.

A Good Man

“When he and Simon went to Africa last year and saw the children, it was really life-altering for him,” said the insider. “He just knew he had to do his part and be willing to put his money where his mouth is.”

Idol Gives Back, which also features appearances from Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus and a slew of other celebrities, airs tomorrow night on FOX. We encourage all to watch and pledge money.
