Stand Up to Cancer 2010 telethon is just around the corner. Bring tissues. And your checkbook.

A couple of weeks ago, just before heading out to the Cape, I posted a video of some of the top names in the music industry performing the song “Just Stand Up!” at the 2008 “Stand Up to Cancer” telethon. It’s a bit cheesy, admittedly, like “Do they know it’s Christmas?”, the flagship song of 1984’s BandAid initiative—but both of them brought tears to my eyes. With the 2010 Stand Up to Cancer telethon right around the corner—Friday, September 10, from 8pm to 9pm EDT—I’m getting prepared, with my fuzzy blanket, a big, poofy pillow, and two boxes of tissues. And not only because some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry will be there, but also because Stand Up to Cancer has actually done some amazing stuff with the $100 million they raised in 2008, I’ll have my checkbook next to me as well.


VIDEO: “Just Stand Up!”

I’ve got to hand it to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s “Stand Up 2 Cancer” initiative. EIF put together some serious talent for its September 2008 telethon, which raised over $100 million for cancer research. The initiative’s flag song, “Just Stand Up!”, is performed here by Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood, Leona Lewis, Miley Cyrus, Fergie, Natasha Bedingfield, Rihanna, and Ciara (all of whom I dated until recently).

Zac Efron’s Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) PSA

I love public service announcements, especially when they’re for causes closest to my heart. Here you can watch girls swoon over Zac Efron as he steps into an elevator. This happens to me all the time.
