Have Mercy! This past weekend, actor John Stamos took time out of his busy schedule to host an event benefiting mothers with HIV.

The organization, mothers2mothers International, reaches out to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV through education and awareness to mothers who are HIV positive.

“My dear friend Debbie Bickerstaff is really involved with mothers2mothers and she asked me to host it and I knew that she wouldn’t take no for an answer,” he said in an interview with ET Online. “So, I studied the organization and I mean I love to get involved with anything involving children. You know babies, kids that’s really where I spend all my charitable time.”

In addition to his hosting duties, the singer/actor also performed a set with the band America. He even explained how they want to make at least $80 million. Joking aside, he and mothers2mothers hope to drive people towards the website.

Stamos also took to his Twitter page and tweeted, “great night hosting http://m2m.org @NiaVardalos @JodieTweetin @ScottGrimes @annabethgish @candacecbure @jerrycferrara @americaband.”

Be sure to watch the video below, to hear more from Stamos!
