Project Main Details

Feed the Children 
This is a long form TV show for Feed the Children to raise money. There is one show for US hunger and one for International hunger. This segment is the call to action segment. We would also like the same voice to do the show open.

I'm including a portion of the CTA for US hunger and the show open. The amount of material is similar for the International show.

We are looking for a mature male with texture in the voice. Authoritative but not too slick. Not grandfatherly. Want it to sound like a real person not an announcer.

The tempo of the read should be urgent.

Domestic Call to Action
It’s the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
Millions of struggling families can’t afford to put enough food on the table – and their children are going to bed hungry. Right here in America. You can reach out in love to desperate children and give them the food they urgently need.

Call Feed the Children now. You can help provide nourishing food for four children every month. For just 62 cents a day, only $19 a month.

How can 62 cents a day do so much good? Feed the Children has received millions of dollars’ worth of food and essentials from leading corporations and food suppliers. Thanks to this donated food, your monthly gift of $19 multiplies 5 times to ship and deliver $95 worth of food and essentials. That’s enough to help feed four hungry children, month after month.

Call now or search Feed the Children. No child in America should have to go to bed hungry, night after night. Your call– your act of kindness -- can be the answer to a hungry child's prayer. Don’t wait.

Call the number on your screen now. Or search: Feed the Children.
