Band From TV is taking their latest charitable fundraiser to the Internet.

The music group -- which includes Heroes' Greg Grunberg, Desperate Housewives' James Denton, former Bachelor Bob Guiney, House's Jesse Spencer and TV actress Bonnie Somerville -- will donate funds raised from every $1.99 Amazon.com sale of their Hoggin All The Covers album to charity.

Members of the band have requested that funds from Wednesday's one-day-only sale go directly to the National Epilepsy Foundation, TalkAboutIt.org, Save the Children, The Conservation Fund, The Art of Elysium, the Child Abuse Prevention Program and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Making their first appearance as a group at a 2006 Emmy afterparty, Band From TV donates every dollar raised from their performances to charity, with the Amazon.com partnership being their most recent philanthropic effort.

"My oldest son has epilepsy and I saw this band as a wonderful vehicle to help raise money for the National Epilepsy Foundation," Grunberg, who founded the cover band, has said. "Having band mates who also happen to be in some of the most popular shows on television creates an amazing opportunity to really reach out to our fans to help support these wonderful causes."

Fans can download a digital copy of the 13-track album, dubbed an MP3 Daily Deal, at Amazon.com before midnight to help the group in their effort to give back.
