Last weekend New York City’s Central Park made enough noise to be heard across the globe – all for a good cause. Over 60,000 people filled the Great Lawn for a star-studded concert that raised support for major issues like world hunger and childhood education.
Hosted by Hugh Jackman, the event featured performances by Tiësto, The Roots, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, No Doubt, and even Jay Z (with a “surprise” cameo by Beyoncé!) Everyone who attended had one goal in mind: To end global poverty by 2030.
The impact was phenomenal – a call to action to leaders from around the world. Even India’s Prime Minister graced the stage, commending Global Citizen for its efforts. The concert brought awareness to drought, pollution, lack of vaccinations and common diseases going untreated.
The best part about the concert is that, though tickets were free of charge, you had to earn them. Young activists were encouraged to share their thoughts on global issues via social media in order to earn points to get tickets.
The night was a great success. No better way to end the summer than to give back in Caché style!
