Exclusive! Maria Shriver's $40M Mission to Save Arts Education

"Extra" caught up with Maria Shriver, who attended the launch of the California Arts Council Create a State Campaign, a cause which aims to save arts education in California through the sale of specialized arts license plates.


The organization's goal is to raise at least $40 million, and Shriver explained, "It's really easy... you have to have a license plate and with one sign of your name and one check, you can change another human's life."

Maria joined forces with sister-in-law Malissa Shriver, who said, "We're not into procrastination in the Shriver family! This is a really easy and simple way to support the arts."

When asked how her son Patrick was doing after his ski accident earlier this month in Idaho, Maria replied, "He's good... he's fine, don't worry about Patrick."
