New York, NY, January 11, 2011 – National nonprofit organization HomeAid has signed an agreement with diversified media company Be The Media to host a virtual benefit event to help keep families in their homes, to be held in November 2011 during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.

Celebrities, artists, and performers from across the country are contributing exclusive video content that will be streamed on the website. Since sponsors will cover the costs of the event, 100% of donations raised will go to HomeAid and other nonprofits that fight homelessness.
