Once again, celebrities will be uniting for a good cause—and they weren’t asked by George Clooney to do so.

On Monday, CNN will broadcast a Larry King Live special focused on the BP oil spill. The telethon - Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help - will allow viewers to contribute to one of three different charities (The Nature Conservancy, United Way, or the National Wildlife Federation). Donations raised will “go to aid in rebuilding the Gulf Coast.”

Those helping King with the two-hour event include , Chelsea Handler, Sting, Tim McGraw, Kathy Griffin, Alyssa Milano, Deepak Chopra, Pete Wentz, Ted Danson, Robert Redford, Harry Connick Jr., Jenny McCarthy and Philippe Cousteau.

The special will air from 8 to 10 p.m. Eastern.
