IMTA alum Ashton Kutcher was one of the celebrity friends invited to celebrate the Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C.. Ashton and his beautiful wife, Demi Moore were guests at the most exclusive festivities including 'The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural' Ball and The 'Be The Change' Inaugural Youth Ball.
In honor of Barack Obama’s Inauguration, Kutcher and Moore have set out to get pledges of service from the American people, including their celebrity friends. In a video, directed by Demi Moore and produced by MySpace and Ashton Kutcher's Katalyst Media, Ashton and many top celebrities appear making their promise to help improve our nation.
More than 50 A-list stars such as Jason Bateman, Dakota Fanning, Nicole Richie, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Kevin Connolly, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz, and Molly Sims pledge their service to Barack Obama and encourage others to do the same by going to USAService.Org and finding a cause.
"We are honored to be working with MySpace to rally the entertainment industry to answer President-elect Barack Obama's call to service," Kutcher said in a statement. "The 'Presidential Pledge' is a platform for people across the nation and throughout the world to make a first-person commitment of service to our new president, articulating a specific intent or action to become an agent of positive change."
