Jamie Foxx is lending his voice to a crisis help line.
He recorded a message for Covenant House’s Nineline. The organization is a national agency that helps homless children. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s part of Participant Media’s campaign for The Soloist.
"Our social action campaigns are designed to take the issues in our films off the screen and into the community, and we join forces with the leading organizations working on these issues for initiatives to make a difference," said John Schreiber, Participant Media’s executive vp social action.
"Now kids in crisis will not only hear a reassuring voice but a well-known, positive role model," said Kevin Ryan, the president of Covenant House. "I’m convinced that hearing Jamie’s voice will be the difference for kids who might otherwise get scared and hang up before we can help. This is a tremendous gift to our kids."
There are several other agencies also working in conjunction with The Soloist to provide information and resources to the community.
