How do you raise $1M to feed hungry kids? Celebrity trainer, choreographer and Broadway dancer Isaac Calpito joins Debbie and Billy Shore to talk about using his platform to amplify support for No Kid Hungry. Calpito developed a workout called Torch’d on Instagram TV every day when the pandemic hit and encouraged his followers to make donations to No Kid Hungry. “So many wonderful things are happening because people are showing up, not only for their bodies and their minds, but with this beautiful connection that we have for giving,” he explains. “There’s something so intrinsically basic about a child eating. It’s deeply important to me and clearly deeply important to my followers,” he says.
“The fact that we can still raise over $20K in 45 minutes after doing this every day for six months is a testament to the fact that there is good in the world,” says Calpito. So far, he has raised more than $800K of his $1M goal. “Who knows what the future holds, but my followers are stuck with me. We’re just going to watch this thing grow and the sky is the limit,” he concludes.
