Who you're benefiting

Architecture for Humanity

MTV and Architecture for Humanity are teaming up to rebuild the boardwalk of Seaside Heights, which was was the hardest hit area of any coastal areas during Hurricane Sandy. The 18-block boardwalk, which is the economic lifeline of the area has been completely devastated.

So we have to step up and be the difference that rebuilds this area. With your help we can raise enough money to restore the boardwalk and save this area that is the home to 3,000 people and attracts 65,000 visitors every year.

The Celebrity

Vinny Guadagnino

Vinny Guadagnino

What do puppies, personal strength, and meatballs have in common? Vinny Guadagnino. Among his other accomplishments, everyone’s favorite Jersey Shore darling has been an advocate for animal rescue leagues and anti-bullying groups in-between serving time as a political aide in New York. Cool, huh? If the Jersey Shore is any indication, his Sicilian mother also cooks a mean lasagna. That’s why we’re stoked to personally extend an invite to Sunday dinner at Vinny’s house. There will be plenty of people to talk to which means it’s your turn to learn what bonds an Italian family and how the ziti compares to your Grandma’s while coyly admiring Vinny’s pearly whites.
