Grey’s Anatomy’s Jason George Campaigns to Reconcile Cultural Differences
The 44-year-old actor is working with the Multiracial Americans of Southern California non-profit for a new Prizeo fundraiser.
“In the real world, there’s a lot of conflict about cultural differences, especially in this election year,” Jason tells Los Angeles’ FOX 11. “[MASC’s] sole purpose is to reconcile cultural differences … so we can peacefully coexist.”
The timing of this campaign is no coincidence. June 12 is Loving Day, the annual holiday marking Loving v. Virginia, the 1967 Supreme Court ruling that made it unconstitutional for any state to ban interracial marriage. (And Jason has a personal stake in the cause: Since 1998, he’s been married to Vandana Khanna, an Indian-American poet.)
The Ben Warren portrayer even rounded up his Grey’s co-stars for the video you see below.
Donating money toward such a good cause is reward enough already, but there are some amazing prizes at stake — t-shirts, thank you videos, Skype calls with Jason, a dinner with Jason, and even a full day with Jason on the Thursday of the Season 13 premiere (including airfare and accommodations).
He might even take you to the Grey’s Anatomy set. “If I have to go to work, you’ll have to go to work with me,” he tells FOX 11.
But even if not, you’ll definitely meet other cast members — the ABC star will take you to the cast’s live-tweeting party for the season premiere.
All it takes to enter the sweepstakes for that grand prize is a $10 donation, so hie yourself over to Prizeo with your wallet at the ready!
Grey’s Anatomy returns for Season 13 this fall on ABC.
