New Jersey was one of the hardest hit places by Hurricane Sandy last week with much of its shoreline decimated. So is it any surprise that the people who helped bring newfound fame to the Garden State's beaches are "trying" to do their part to help? Fist pump! The Jersey Shore kids are doing a telethon. Gym. Tan. Laundry. Telethons. Oh, yeah.

Now we doubt the Shore kids can pull in the kinds of bucks that, say, a Bruce Springsteen telethon can, but we have to appreciate the effort? Here's the basic info, so mark your calendars:

MTV has teamed with Architecture for Humanity for a live benefit special to help raise funds to rebuild areas of the Jersey Shore that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. "Restore the Shore" will air live on November 15th at 11 p.m. EST, and will feature cast members of Jersey Shore with other guests to be announced.
