"In today's tough economic times, it's more important than ever -- but more difficult than ever -- to raise money to help those in need," offered Fox president of alternative Mike Darnell. "With this season's Idol Gives Back, we're focused on raising awareness about the challenges that so many children and families currently face and demonstrating how even small donations can make a difference and help save lives."

Currently, Idol Gives Back has raised more than $140 million.
