Think It Up: Celebrities cover the red carpet to raise money for education

Celebrities covered the red carpet in Santa Monica Friday afternoon at the Santa Monica Airport . They weren't just there for an entertainment event, but this time, also for an educational one.

The project they're supporting is called Think it Up. The idea is for kids between 7th and 12th grade to dream up projects they're passionate about bringing to their classrooms and apply to make them a reality.

The projects can range from a telescope for a science class, or editing software to make a film for a school project.

Actor Terry Cruz, rapper Big Sean, talk show host Julie Chen and singer all attended the show which was televised across the country Friday. The project's founders hope to raise money through the telecast to fund the projects.
