Broadway Kids Care to Perform on GOOD MORNING AMERICA, 12/17

Broadway Kids Care (BKC), the organization of theater kids for kids (and others), will appear on "Good Morning America" on Friday, December 17, 2010 during the 8:30 a.m. half hour as part of GMA's 'Warm Coats & Warm Hearts' Drive.

In addition to donating coats, kids from such shows as A Little Night Music, Billy Elliot and Mary Poppins will be performing holiday carols.

"I'm really excited to be able to help with the coat drive this year," said Alex Ko. Alex is the BKC Spokesperson for the fundraiser and is also currently performing as Billy in Billy Elliot. "There's nothing worse than being cold if you can't get warm.  Even though all of us are very busy with our jobs and school, it's really important to help people.  I know all of us are happy to be a part of Broadway Kids Care and to share with those in need."

Broadway Kids Care was founded in 2007 by Kelly Gonda, President of East of Doheny as a way to bring together children from current and past Broadway shows while allowing them the opportunity to perform community service. During its brief history, BKC's members have participated in a variety of charitable works including: creating Halloween and Easter baskets for the children of Freedom House NYC, knitting scarves for the residents at the Lillian Booth Actor's Home, making peace/friendship bracelets for the troops in Iraq, creating hats for children undergoing chemotherapy at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and raising money for the UNICEF / Pampers One Pack=One Vaccine Program, among other projects.

BKC's dream is to become a nationwide organization, and ultimately, a global one. For more information about Broadway Kids Care, visit their website at www.bwaykidscare.com.
