Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is ready to “restore the Shore”… And, she’s asking for your help to get it done.
The 24-year-old Chilean American reality television star, who gave birth to her first child this summer, and her Jersey Shore cast mates have signed up to support MTV’s live one-hour telethon special, Restore the Shore.
The event will benefit relief efforts in New Jersey, which was brutally damaged by Hurricane Sandy last week.
Featuring other celebrity guests, the fundraiser will encourage viewers to donate to help reconstruct the Seaside Heights boardwalk and support the re-building efforts of businesses and residents in the area.
MTV is joining forces with Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization that provides design and construction services after natural disasters.
“We are doing a live telethon to raise money to help rebuild,” so tweeted Snooki tweeted, who also encouraged her fans to donate cleaning supplies.
“Help donate cleanin supplies,gloves,brooms,batteries,flashlights 2 help people rebuild their homes on SI u can drop them off@ 401 Guyon ave.”
The MTV telethon will air live on Thursday, November 15 at 11:00 pm from MTV’s Times Square studio.
During and after the event, viewers will be able to donate online or via text message.
Last week, NBC held a Hurricane Sandy telethon featuring a host of A-list artists, including Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon and more to help victims of the debilitating storm. The event raised $23 million.
