Jimmy Fallon is celebrating five years at The Tonight Show by spreading the love.

The talk show host is inviting ambassadors of important social causes and issues next week onto his show to discuss their personal causes and the difference their organizations have made in the world.

Kicking off the special week on Monday is Sesame Street’s Big Bird, who will be shining a light on Sesame Workshop, a nonprofit organization that encourages children to be kinder and stronger through education.

Then on Feb. 12, TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie will join Fallon, 44, to share an update on TOMS’ End Gun Violence Together Campaign, which has been working to reduce gun violence and urge Congress to pass universal background check legislation.

Newly engaged Tim Tebow will be paying Fallon a visit mid-week to chat about his passion in assisting children with special needs through his foundation.

On Valentine’s Day, the show will focus on Girl Scouts of Greater New York’s Troop 6000, which was formed at a homeless shelter in 2017 and has continued to grow in size in New York City.

Rounding out the week will be show favorites Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin, who will return to the show to discuss their Wildlife Warriors initiative.
