George Harrison Fund for UNICEF/'Month of Giving'

  • George Harrison Fund for UNICEF/'Month of Giving'
    Posted by siteadmin  |  August 19, 2011

    On August 1, 1971, George Harrison of The Beatles and Ravi Shankar brought together a star-studded cast of musicians for The Concert for Bangladesh, which became one of the most ambitious humanitarian efforts in music history. In honor of the 40th anniversary of the concert, the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF has designated August as the ‘Month of Giving’ to raise funds for the crisis in the Horn of Africa. In the humanitarian spirit of George Harrison, to show that musicians and fans can still make an impact around the world, I am asking you to join me in continuing to support the Month of Giving with UNICEF USA. Please visit TheConcertforBangladesh.org where you can watch the latest video, learn more about the original concert, and discover the many ways YOU can get involved to help save children’s lives. http://bit.ly/4-a-friend
