Cast and Crew of Hit ABC and Disney Channel Shows Create Exclusive Wooden Hearts to Raise Funds for The Help Group Through DisneyAuctions.com, Starting Monday, October 24

Teaming up to help children with special needs, the casts and crews of ten hit Disney-ABC Television Group series have created exclusive, one-of-a-kind wooden hearts to be auctioned off October 24 - November 3 at DisneyAuctions.com.

All proceeds from the online auction will benefit The Help Group, an organization dedicated to serving children with special needs related to autism, Asperger�s disorder, learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, mental retardation, abuse and emotional problems. The inspiration for the hearts comes directly from the children of The Help Group schools. Help Group students paint hearts and other canvases as part of an art therapy program designed to promote self-esteem as well as visual motor skills in children with special needs.

Unique, detailed pieces of art capturing the essence of shows -- including ABC�s �Alias,� �Desperate Housewives,� �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,� �General Hospital,� �The View,� �Good Morning America,� �Grey�s Anatomy,� �Lost,� Disney Channel�s �The Suite Life of Zack & Cody� and �That�s So Raven� -- are part of the unprecedented ABC auction.

�Alias� � autographed by Jennifer Garner, this silver heart features two doors that open to reveal a detailed fake time bomb and unique images.

�Desperate Housewives� � covered in wisteria, this heart includes photos of America�s most famous housewives and is signed by Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria and Nicollette Sheridan.

�Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� � an intricately carved house filled with tiny people is the centerpiece of this heart, which also includes the show�s logo, the sun and moon.

�General Hospital� � �My Heart Belongs to General Hospital� is emblazoned on this red heart pierced by a hand-painted arrow and decorated with roses � a must have for fans of this ABC and SOAPNet favorite.

�Good Morning America� � featuring photos of both the weekday and weekend casts, this heart�s backdrop are the Stars and Stripes of America.

�Grey�s Anatomy� � signed by Patrick Dempsey, this heart brings to life various elements of the hit show, including scenes of Seattle, diagrams of the heart and brain, a group photo and character quotes.

�Lost� � this heart features photos of America�s favorite castaways, along with scenes from the island they inhabit.

�The Suite Life of Zack & Cody� � this heart, signed by Dylan and Cole Sprouse, Brenda Strong and Ashley Tisdale of the Disney Channel hit series which recently premiered on ABC Kids, features behind-the-scenes photos and pages from an episodic script, and typifies the young cast�s favorite things, sports and beauty items.

�That�s So Raven� � Raven-Symone, star of the hit Disney Channel and ABC Kids series, personally transformed this heart into a beautiful face filled with emotion.

�The View� � decorated with photos of ABC�s five queens of daytime, this heart includes some of the ladies� trademark quotes.
