A series of guest hosts are filling in at Jeopardy!’s lectern for charity this season, and the week of April 19th through the 23rd, Hôpital Albert Schweitzer will be the big winner!
Award winning journalist and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will take his turn running the game starting April 19th and he has selected HAS as his designated charity for that week. Anderson has long felt a connection to Haiti and the resilience and dignity of its people. When he first visited Haiti as a young journalist, Anderson saw the challenges many people faced every day and admired the buoyant spirit with which struggles were faced. He was there in Haiti in the hours following the 2010 earthquake and gained an even deeper appreciation for the determination of the Haitian people – and the many medical needs that are unmet.
Jeopardy! will make a contribution to HAS matching the cumulative winnings of all contestants who compete during this week, so please tune in every day to watch the total grow!
We send our gratitude to Anderson and to Jeopardy! for joining our thousands of friends and supporters around the globe in championing the work of HAS and the amazing people we serve.
Mèsi Anpil! Thank you!
