The #TwizzlerChallenge was started by Meredith Vieira after she saw a comedy segment on Night of Too Many Stars in which a Twitter user, @FredKatz, nominated Willie Geist (TODAY) & Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), to reenact the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp with a piece of licorice during the live telethon. Vieira then invited Geist on her own show to do the scene again, branded it “The Twizzler Challenge” and donated $5,000 to NYC4A.

The challenge has grabbed the attention of numerous celebrities, news personalities and thousands of people across the country inspired to make a difference.
