Actor and World Hunger activist David Arquette is to live in a plastic box in New York City to help raise money for the hungry.
The 37-year-old plans to stay in a plexiglass box above the Madison Square Garden marquee for about eight hours each day on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Arquette is aiming to raise $250,000 for Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief charity. Donations can be made via a special Facebook page set up by Snickers, who are sponsoring the stunt. Until September 7, Snickers will donate $1 for every person to join the Facebook page, and also match every dollar donated by supporters.
Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. As the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, our network members supply food to more than 25 million Americans each year, including 9 million children and 3 million seniors. Serving the entire United States, more than 200 member food banks support 63,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
