Ryan Seacrest Donates Media Center to Children’s Hospital

Despite recent personal drama and an insanely busy schedule, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest still finds time to do really, really cool things.

On Friday, Ryan's latest donation, a new media center, was unveiled at the Children's Hospital of Orange County.

Ryan's foundation, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation builds media centers inside Children's Hospitals with the goal of giving kids a break and distraction from their illnesses or recovery processes.

When asked, Seacrest explained his motivation for the idea and discussed how the patients in Children's Hospitals grow bored of being stuck in the hospital for extended periods.

“I started to think about what we could do to create a distraction and also something where they can learn and be active,” Seacrest said.

As of now, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation has opened 4 total centers (Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas and Orange County) across the country and is looking to build more.
