Asking Celebs to Read for a Cause



    Asking Celebs to Read for a Cause

    Local photographer Chris Morrow documents events in and around San Diego all year long. This year, she decided to produce a video involving some of the many celebrities she meets in the hopes of raising money to fight autism.

    Morrow asked celebrities like Carlos Mencia, Jimmie Johnson, Max Ryan, Adrian Paul and artist Wyland to read a portion of the famous poem "The Night Before Christmas."

    Piecing together their performances, she created a short video to increase the awareness of the power of sharing a book with a child.

    The project took a slight turn however when Morrow realized the book she had all the celebrities autograph could help raise money for another cause that's dear to her heart - autism.

    Right now, you can bid on the book on eBay to help raise money for the National Foundation for Autism Research's San Diego Autism Teachers Grant Program.

    "I believe it is important to give back and help make a difference, especially during these tough economic times," Morrow posted on her blog. "Through this project, I discovered that your time can be just as valuable as donations."
