Sound of Change LIVE’s echo – ever new projects getting fully funded

Sound of Change LIVE

And it truly was a magical evening. Beyoncé and Jay Z lit up an electric atmosphere, while Jennifer Lopez and Mary J Blige were able to raise the level of energy to a whole new level. Rita Ora, Laura Pausini, Jessie J and all of the other extraordinary performers and presenters also mastered the stage to the degree of having the audience standing for the virtual entire duration of the concert. Testimony to it are the popular videos uploaded by the public, streaming on the internet, and sharing the Sound of Change LIVE enthusiasm. But it appears to be more than that what they actually shared – the Chime for Change spirit – the absolute brightest aura shining from the event.

Prince Harry sent a message full of determination to be chimed through the huge screens at the Sound of Change.

And UNICEF took notice of the exceptional nature of the Chime for Change global initiative, recognized the magnitude of the steps and leaps it is striving to make, and is showing full support for the effort founded by Gucci and, thanks to the Italian house, open to each and every one of us.

Next to the tens of thousands of concert tickets seeing their full value being directed to projects directly chosen by those having bought them, people from around the world touched by the Chime for Change message continue donating.

Projects addressing specific problems with efficient solutions identified by 33 NGOs around the world are making global issues with local solutions solvable through donations from opposite corners of the planet.

Celebrities and activists whose work is internationally recognised and acclaimed endorse causes close to their heart and vital for the girls and women they are aimed for.

Become part of the chain of change. Donate, choose new projects from among those spoken for by Ellie Goulding, Jada Pinkett Smith, Timbaland, Freida Pinto, Leymah Gbowee, Gloria Steinem, HAIM, Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana, John Legend, Florence + The Machine, Laura Pausini, Mpho Tutu, Rita Ora, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Iggy Azalea, Jessica Chastain or James Franco and keep up with the rate at which, thanks to all of us, new projects become fully funded *.

Keep raising your voice for girls and women everywhere and make the Chime for Change echo resonate even further!
