The cast of ABC’s “Scandal” put their characters’ differences aside to raise funds for the Screen Actors Guild Foundation with a new holiday video.
Stars of Shonda Rhimes‘s popular drama wore reindeer antlers, Santa Claus hats and mittens as they recited their own spin of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” called “Givemas.”
The one-minute poem includes help fro Kerry Washington, Scott Foley,Tony Goldwyn, Kate Burton, Portia De Rossi, Paul Adelstein, Joe Morton, George Newbern, Jeff Perry, Darby Stanchfield, Jon Tenney and Bellamy Young.
In the video, castmembers took turns reciting a line each to inspire donations.
“Kerry Washington and the cast of “Scandal” have made us feel like George Bailey at the end of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Executive Director of the SAG Foundation Cyd Wilson said. “They came in with the best attitudes and brought this idea of Givemas to life. They gave us the greatest gift of their support this season.”
The foundation provides emergency assistance, health care, scholarships and free educational programs for SAG-AFTRA performers and their families.
