Another massive group of celebrities is joining together to try to raise money for charity during the Coronavirus outbreak.  

This time, it's a 24-hour long livestream of hope starting Friday night, May 1st.  It's called the "Call To Unite" and it's the brainchild of Special Olympics CEO Tim Shriver.   

He's expecting everyone from former President George W. Bush, Oprah, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner, and Quincy Jones to take part. There are more than 200 names on that list. 

All of them will give lessons, or perform, or just talk to you, according to reports.  

It's a fundraiser for Give Directly and the Points of Light Foundation.  

You'll be able to watch for 24 hours straight at Unite.US, or through its Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Twitch channels.
