NEW YORK, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --America's leading crime and justice
television channel, Investigation Discovery (ID), has announced an advertising
partnership with Glamour magazine to bolster national awareness for ID's new
public affairs initiative, INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE. Launched in April, INSPIRE A
DIFFERENCE weaves together ID's ongoing awareness efforts to encourage a
national dialogue about victims' rights and healing.ID will formally roll out
the campaign on September 9^th at the inaugural INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE Honors
Event at the Edison Ballroom in New York City, where it will co-host an
evening with Glamour to recognize the powerful work of honorees -- Emily
Deschanel, Kristin Chenoweth and Brittany Snow -- and the charities they
partner with to bring some of these important issues to the forefront.

The inaugural INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE event will honor Deschanel, Chenoweth and
Snow for their work with the following charities:

  oFIVE ACRES: Emily Deschanel is a supporter of Five Acres, which works to
    prevent child abuse and neglect and treat and educate emotionally fragile
    and abused children and their families via residential and outreach
    programs.
  oMADDIE'S CORNER: Inspired by her love for her dog Maddie, singer, actress
    and comedienne Kristin Chenoweth founded Maddie's Corner, an organization
    that supports not only animals in need, but also emotionally abused and
    at-risk children through the sponsorship and creation of pet therapy
    programs.
  oLOVE IS LOUDER: Actress Brittany Snow founded Love is Louder to support
    anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. Individuals,
    communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a
    way to address issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination,
    loneliness and depression.

In addition to the inaugural awards ceremony, ID embarked on an advertising
partnership with Glamour to help shout the cause to its readers, celebrating
incredible women across the U.S. whose dedication to victim's rights and
healing are inspiring others to create a change. A four-page advertorial
spread in the September issue (on newsstands now) highlights the powerful work
of Deschanel, Chenoweth and Snow, and their chosen charities. In addition, ID
and Glamour put out a national call-to-action for readers to nominate an
everyday hero. One reader will be honored in Glamour's December issue, and
their chosen charity will receive a $5,000 donation from ID.

"We are thrilled to have the support of Glamour and its readers to help us
formally launch INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE as we  celebrate the work of our
celebrity honorees," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager,
Investigation Discovery. "Emily, Kristin and Brittany have clearly lent their
voices to issues where it might have been traditionally difficult to speak up,
and at ID it is our hope that their acceptance of the INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE
award further encourages our audience and Glamour's readership to help put an
end to insensible acts of injustice that still affect women every single day."

Focusing on topics such as violence against women, domestic abuse,
anti-bullying, sexual assault and Civil Rights, INSPIRE A DIFFERENCE is
designed to help empower viewers to make an impact in their own communities.
This multi-media campaign employs all of ID's promotional assets, including
on-air PSAs, digital resources, and local and national events. The campaign
launched in April, 2013 with a partnership with the National Center for
Victims of Crime (NCVC), and featured Paula Zahn, host of ID's ON THE CASE
WITH PAULA ZAHN (Sundays at 10p/9p C), discussing the issue of stalking in the
U.S. The current PSA on-air is in support of the premiere of ID's all-new
series, SURVIVING EVIL (World Premiere: Wednesday, August 28 at 10p/9p C), and
features series host Charisma Carpenter, providing resources to individuals,
families, and communities harmed by crime through resources offered by NCVC.
Tamron Hall, host of ID's new series, DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL (World
Premiere: Sunday, September 1 at 9p/8p C) will be featured in the October PSA
in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV).
