MTV Raises More Than $1 Million For Seaside Heights

'Restore the Shore' aired at 11 p.m. Friday

Dozens of stars, artists and organizations helped raise more than $1 million in a one-hour MTV-driven fundraising special to help rebuild Seaside Heights.

The event is scheduled aired live at 11 p.m. Friday on MTV, MTV.com, MTV mobile and MTV radio, according to the network.

The cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" - as well as stars from other top MTV shows including "Awkward," "Teen Wolf," "Teen Mom," "The Challenge," and "The Real World" - were live in MTV's Times Square studio, calling donors to thank them for giving, according to MTV.

Stars contributing messages of support who were to be featured on-air included One Direction, Mac Miller, Pharrell, Kim Kardashian, Ne-Yo, Bruno Mars, fun., the Jonas Brothers, All Time Low and Sean Kingston, according to MTV.

"Restore the Shore" also featured live performances from Gym Class Heroes performing the comeback anthem "The Fighter," as well as "American Idol" Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips performing his stirring hit "Home," according to MTV.

MTV asked people to donate $25 or more here and receive an MTV "Restore the Shore" song bundle, which includes 30 songs from the past six seasons of "Jersey Shore."

All funds raised will go to Architecture for Humanity, an internationally recognized non-profit that led rebuilding efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, according to MTV.

I live or lived rather in SSH until this storm happend, I am a fan of this show, as I stated above, I am grateful for the time they have put in. HOWEVER, i think they need to put up the dough or the time there cleaning up. Not asking their fans to put the dough up. I went to one benefit for the sandy victims and my family and I are ones ourselves. Will I see any of the money I put in or will I see anything from this show? No probably not on either acct., as much as I need the help I am not going around asking for it. My home was a rental so we won't be going back as much as I would like to. I loved my town, with all of its quirks and all of the negative vibes ppl had of it. I loved being able to walk up the block to sit on the bench at the boardwalk, or lay on the beach, or play in the surf right on my block. For the record, I never had any problems walking the boards when they were around, i just avoided it. :)

its not meant for ppl directly from what the show said, its to fix homes, and businesses and the shore itself.

I hope that the money DOES go to rebuild homes, not just businesses and boardwalks. I know they are essential, but just divide up evenly. Also, all these other fundraisers, how do we find out where their money is going and how to get some to the homeowners also? Would love the help to rebuild my home also.
