Actor Jamie Foxx has lent his voice to a crisis helpline as part of his latest film’s social action campaign.
Following his successful National World Train promotion for his new film, The Soloist, in which people submitted videos to the Save The Music Foundation, Foxx has now recorded a message for Nineline, a crisis helpline run by Covenant House, an agency that works with homeless children.
“Now kids in crisis will not only hear a reassuring voice but a well-known, positive role model,” said Covenant House President Kevin Ryan. “I’m convinced that hearing Jamie’s voice will be the difference for kids who might otherwise get scared and hang up before we can help. This is a tremendous gift to our kids.”
The hotline received more than 45,000 calls from at-risk kids last year. To find out more about its services, visit the official site.
