E.R. star Anthony Edwards has announced that $1 from every ticket sold to his new film Motherhood via website – during the film’s first two weeks – will go to charity.

The actor has revealed how his sister is a breast cancer survivor and he is thrilled the campaign will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. 

“It’s fantastic,” he said. "Obviously breast cancer affects a lot of women in America. I have a sister who’s a survivor. People uniting together and raising money and awareness this way is hugely important and it seems right on with Motherhood.

“It’s not a gimmick. It’s a real thing and we can celebrate motherhood and the challenges that go right along with it, so I think Fandango stepping up and Susan Komen being the benefactor is fantastic.”

Edwards has also revealed that he will take part in the New York Marathon on November 1 for Shoe4Africa – an organization for which he sits on the Board of Directors – which aims for empowerment through sports & education, creating unique health initiatives, and promoting Aids awareness. 

“The big project in my life right now is raising money to build the first public children’s hospital in Kenya through an organization called Shoe4Africa. We use running as a medium to bring women together and empower women in Africa to run for health initiatives and AIDS education. I’m running on November 1st with 30 people to raise awareness and funds.”
