We are thrilled with the success of Tuesday night’s launch event with the cast of 'Roswell, New Mexico.' We could not have picked a better cast to join us in supporting Feeding America. We’re already hard at work planning future Cast4Good online chats to benefit other worthy causes.

Cast4Good was founded by Todd Krim, President & CEO of The Krim Group, as a creative new fundraising initiative in response to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, but will soon be expanded to support a wide range of charities and causes including climate change, humanitarian relief, social justice reform and gender equality. With the advent of social distancing and so many individuals turning towards entertainment for comfort and solace, Cast4Good unites cast members from beloved television series and films for exclusive one-hour moderated discussions and fan Q&As that audiences globally can watch and participate in from the comfort of their own homes – all while raising funds for charity and fostering a sense of community during these unprecedented times. Proceeds raised from the ticket sales are donated to the charity organization being highlighted.

The debut Cast4Good event took place on Tuesday, April 21st with the cast of The CW’s "Roswell, New Mexico," as well as the creator and producer Carina Adly MacKenzie. Immediately following the panel, fans had the opportunity to have 1-on-1 video chats with select cast members via the digital platform, Looped. Proceeds raised from this inaugural event are being donated to Feeding America® and their COVID-19 Response Fund, a national food-and-fundraising effort to support people facing hunger and local food banks who help them.

“We are so thrilled with the success of last night’s launch event with the cast of 'Roswell, New Mexico.' We could not have picked a better cast to join us in our ‘give back’ efforts and the fan engagement was through the roof. We’re already hard at work planning future ‘cast chats’ to benefit other worthy causes,” said Cast4Good founder Todd Krim.
