THE HUB NETWORK AND GOODWILL(R) PARTNER TO LAUNCH "HUB NETWORK'S SHARE TO SCARE" NATIONAL CHARITY INITIATIVE THIS HALLOWEEN

Partnership Encourages Consumers to Donate Gently Used Costumes to Goodwill

Hub Network Will Donate One Dollar to Goodwill for Each Click on Their Online 'Share to Scare' Banner

LOS ANGELES - Since launching on October 10, 2010, the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families, has used the month of October as a time to broadcast spooky programming the entire family can enjoy. Starting September 27, the Hub Network will partner with Goodwill Industries International to encourage viewers to participate in the "Hub Network's Share to Scare" charity program by donating gently used costumes and other items they no longer need to Goodwill. The campaign also asks people to visit the website hubworld.com/halloween from Friday, September 27 through Wednesday, October 31 and click on the "Share to Scare" banner. For each click, the Hub Network will donate $1 to Goodwill, up to $20,000, to support Goodwill's mission of helping people find jobs and care for their families. The partnership coincides with the network's upcoming "Hub Network's First Annual Halloween Bash," celebrating all things Halloween, including a nationwide costume competition. The star-studded special will be broadcast Saturday, October 26, 8-10 p.m. ET/5-7 p.m. PT.

"The Hub Network is very pleased to partner with Goodwill on 'Share to Scare,'" said Margaret Loesch, President & CEO, the Hub Network. "This worthwhile and relevant corporate philanthropic initiative perfectly fits with the Hub Network's brand mission to provide ways for kids and their families to spend more fun and meaningful time together."

Besides donating gently used costumes, the Hub Network and Goodwill encourage viewers to donate clothing and household items to Goodwill. Goodwill sells the items in its local stores, and the revenues fund programs to help people build their careers as well as to provide community-based services such as child care services, financial education, transportation and youth mentoring.

"Each day, Goodwill helps people with disabilities and disadvantages build their careers so they can better care for their families," said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. "We are grateful for the Hub Network's commitment to Goodwill's mission and encourage people to donate their gently used items and Halloween costumes to Goodwill."

To support the "Hub Network's Share to Scare" initiative, Screenvision, a leader in cinema advertising, will broadcast a month-long PSA in October in preshow before the movies in front of G, PG and PG-13 rated films. "Screenvision is pleased to support the Hub Network's commitment to Goodwill's mission, and we feel this message shown on movie screens will connect with moviegoers," added John McCauley, SVP Marketing, Screenvision.

"Hub Network's First Annual Halloween Bash" is a star-studded two-hour special celebrating the best of Halloween with a nationwide costume competition judged by a panel of celebrity presenters, including Halloween-expert Martha Stewart. The extravaganza will be hosted by "Saturday Night Live" actor and comedian, Kenan Thompson, and will feature chart-topping musical performances, including pop-star Cody Simpson, celebrity presenters such as Bailee Madison ("Trophy Wife"), Rico Rodriguez ("Modern Family"), Keean Johnson ("Spooksville") and Todd Newton ("Family Game Night"). The live-to-tape special will take place at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif. Bob Bain serves as executive producer and Paul Flattery is producer for Bob Bain Productions.

"The Halloween Bash" will also include a nationwide costume competition that anyone can enter and anyone can win. Submissions are being accepted until Sunday, September 29. Fifty semi-finalists representing each state in America will win a trip to Los Angeles to compete in the "Halloween Bash," where one lucky winner will take home $25,000 and will have a chance at a walk-on role on the Hub Network's Daytime Emmy(R) Award-winning series, "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series." Viewers can visit hubworld.com/halloween to view a two-minute tutorial with complete details and entry information about the nationwide costume competition.
