THE SOUND OF CHANGE LIVE gathered together some of the world’s
most talented artists and renowned activists to raise funds and
awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment. The four-hour concert
event, attended by more than 50,000 people, was presented by CHIME FOR
CHANGE, founded by Gucci, which campaigns for improved Education, Health
and Justice for women and girls worldwide. The concert took place on
June 1, 2013 at Twickenham Stadium in London.
The concert event raised $4.3 million in ticket sales alone, which will
fund approximately 200 projects in 70 countries around the world through
CHIME FOR CHANGE partner Catapult, the first crowd-funding
platform solely dedicated to advancing the lives of girls. Gucci
underwrote the concert event so that each ticket buyer could donate the
value of their ticket (less VAT and service fees) to a nonprofit
organization of their choice.
Viewers from around the world can also
donate online at chimeforchange.org and fb.com/chimeforchange and
through a mobile text-to-give campaign to fund additional projects.
