          The show features readings and performances by Audra McDonald, Jason Mraz, Karen O And They Might Be Giants. “I think kids are good protectors because it’s our future – and we’re the ones who can make and bring the change,” says ten-year-old Holley. This heartfelt musical special includes kids from around the world who are taking on our biggest environmental challenges, from endangered animals and pollution to a warming planet, showing how we can all protect the planet and everything on it. A mix of science, music and stories of wildlife in danger, the show is a call from kids to all of us to take better care of the earth.
          The debut of “SAVING MY TOMORROW: KIDS WHO LOVE THE EARTH” will be immediately preceded by a marathon presentation of the previous five “Saving My Tomorrow” specials, starting at 4:30 p.m. on HBO Family. From the children who will inherit the planet comes a collection of songs, activism and tips for protecting the earth. Featuring young people dedicated to making the earth a cleaner place, the special explores issues ranging from fracking and water pollution to the benefits of local food and reducing carbon footprints. It spotlights kids who attended the People’s Climate March and tells stories of other young people working for change around the world.

          Dedicated to the late Pete Seeger, “SAVING MY TOMORROW: KIDS WHO LOVE THE EARTH” also offers a segment about the historic cleanup of the Hudson River, which was spearheaded by the folk music legend. In addition to a song by Seeger, the show includes performances and readings by Audra McDonald, Jason Mraz, Karen O and They Might Be Giants. Eight-year-old Kevin says, “I describe the earth as a thing that we cannot live without. It’s a perfect place, but now it’s getting less perfect.”
