We’re excited to be part of history, in collaboration with YouTube studios, to encourage our peers to “Get Covered” by affordable healthcare — aka, ObamaCare.
A-list celebrities are joining the latest push to get Americans educated and enrolled in Obamacare.
The “Tell a Friend — Get Covered” campaign is teaming up with YouTube to produce a live, six-hour variety show on Thursday, with content from Funny or Die, skits and educational segments meant to inform viewers of their affordable health care options.
The campaign has already confirmed Jennifer Hudson, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks for appearances in viral videos that will air during the event. A video featuring “Whose Line Is It Anyway” host Aisha Tyler was released Tuesday as part of the campaign to encourage young people to sign up for health care.
View the video above.
The marathon event comes after a Monday enrollment report revealed that young, healthy Americans are seeking coverage at a much lower rate than President Barack Obama’s administration initially projected. According to the report, less than a quarter of the 2.2 million Americans enrolled in Obamacare are between the ages of 18 and 34; the administration expected 38 percent of enrollees to be within that age range.
The general goal is to use entertainment and participatory media to raise awareness and inspire a number of the 35 million Americans now eligible for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act to #GetCovered. For more, go to http://www.tellafriendgetcovered.com/

Three years ago, Karen Civil launched her annual ‘Live Civil’ brunch with the focus of bringing together an intimate group of dynamic young women who are committed to their craft and dedicated to the progression of women everywhere.
Some of this year’s guests included Roslynn Cobarrubias, Miss Mykie, Karrueche Tran, Melody Thornton, Nicky G., Melissa Keklak, Sarah ViVan, Lola Monroe, and several others. Celebrating each other’s success and sharing stories of growth, these ladies spoke with us about obstacles they’ve overcome, advice to young women emerging in the industry, and the significance of creating more empowering movements that unite instead of perpetuate negative perceptions of women. As the official media partner, REVOLT captured the brunch and spoke with the honored guests.
It was an honor to have been invited for the second year and experience the great energy that was exuded from each woman there.

We were in the Bay over the weekend — and along with shaking our dreads, we ran into some pretty amazing people. Then we realized, you should know these cool ass people too! As you may already be aware of, the Yay Area is the home of hyphy creative folks who are true to themselves, ie: Fo’ty Water, Too $hort and Mac Dre — but now, there’s a new generation of cool, and here’s how they look like…
With this new year, a new you, new money & new love should come with it. Our friends, Jake&Papa, put in the perfect song, New Money. An upbeat, lighthearted song celebrating the beginning of a new year and speaking success into existence. The two singers told us,
“There’s an old tradition, going back generations… If you eat a spoon full of black eyed peas on New Year’s, it’s supposed to bring you good luck, money and blessings. Our older sister made them this year and pretty much inspired this song. A New Year, changes, progression, success… whatever 2013 has for us, we’re ready. We had our spoon full of black eyed peas this year, so that new money is coming. Cheers!”
We heard the anthem ahead of time, and it’s been on HELLA repeat since. Listen, download and enjoy this Dubb & Resource-produced feel-good record below.Readmore
