One World Together At Home is going to be the event of the decade and will be used to raise money to fight Covid-19.
One World Concert will raise money for health care workers through corporate contributions only, but even before this big show Lady Gaga and Global Citizen have been able to raise 35$ million for the World Health Organisation: all money that will be used to buy needed protective equipment for all healthcare workers.
Lady Gaga said: “We have raised the money ahead of time and we’re going to continue fundraising before the show. So when you guys introduce the whole special, you can tell everyone to put your wallets away, put your money away because we don’t need it — we raised the money already!”
Announcing the COVID-19 concert last week, as we also reported here, Lady Gaga said she wants “to highlight this global, kind community that’s coming together right now. It’s this valiant effort that we’re all witnessing in the medical community, take a second to marvel at the bravery. I also want to highlight that this isn’t just a historical moment, but there’s a cultural moment that’s occurring as well, and it’s a kind one. The third thing on my list for this special is celebrate the courage of the human spirit.”
