Each Emmy Award, which is handed out during the show on Sunday, will be offered with something extra – a $ 100,000 donation to combat child hunger.
The TV Academy announced on Friday that every network and streaming service competing on the TV show had promised a donation for every Emmy they won.
With the distribution of 23 Emmys and the academy committing $ 500,000, this will mean a $ 2.8 million donation to No Kid Hungry, a group working to alleviate childhood hunger caused by the coronavirus crisis.
The 72 Emmy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday at 8:00 PM EST on ABC.
