  • A number of stars attended last month's amfAR Inspiration Gala New York.

    HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo, Calvin Klein Collection designers Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli, amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, Sarah Jessica Parker, Josh Duhamel, Fergie, Matt Bomer, Franca Sozzani, Karolina Kurkova, Zachary Quinto, Alan Cumming, Joseph Altuzarra, Thom Browne, Zac Posen, and M·A·C AIDS Fund Chairman John Demsey were among those who gathered at the Plaza to support amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, at the fifth annual Inspiration Gala New York.

    Crown Princess Mette-Marit, HBO, and Calvin Klein Collection were honored at the event for their exceptional contributions to the fight against AIDS. Mr. Duhamel hosted the black-tie benefit and celebration of men's style, which raised more than $1.2 million for amfAR's life-saving AIDS research initiatives.

    The Crown Princess was presented with the amfAR Award of Inspiration by amfAR Trustee Dr. Mervyn Silverman and Vogue Italia Editor in Chief Franca Sozzani, in recognition of her steadfast activism and service on behalf of people living with AIDS around the world. In a poignant acceptance speech, the Crown Princess graciously dedicated her award to the diverse faces of the AIDS epidemic, recognizing "the mothers of Malawi who made a devastating impression on [her], the sex workers in Nicaragua who are still fighting for the right to live a dignified life, the gay communities around the world who have been on the barricades for more than 30 years, and the health workers on the ground who don't wear gloves when they wipe their patients' tears, and [her] incredible young HIV-positive friends who demand an AIDS-free next generation."

    Longtime amfAR supporter Sarah Jessica Parker presented the Award of Inspiration to Michael Lombardo, who accepted on behalf of HBO. Ms. Parker praised HBO's generous corporate support of amfAR, as well as Mr. Lombardo and the company's commitment to keeping AIDS in the public eye by featuring bold programming through the years that has helped to demystify and destigmatize the disease. Upon accepting the award, Mr. Lombardo acknowledged amfAR Founding Chairman Dr. Mathilde Krim for "providing a much needed beacon of light" by demanding a medical response in the early days of the AIDS epidemic.

    Matt Bomer, recently highly acclaimed for his performance in HBO's The Normal Heart, was joined by dedicated amfAR supporter Fergie Duhamel onstage to co-present the Award of Inspiration to Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli, who accepted on behalf of Calvin Klein Collection. Both Mr. Costa and Mr. Zucchelli spoke with hope about the great progress that has been made towards finding a cure for AIDS, due in large part to the fashion community's committed partnership with charitable organizations such as amfAR.

    During the night, host Josh Duhamel gave guests a chance to contribute to amfAR's exciting new Countdown to a Cure initiative by texting to pledge. When HBO generously agreed to match any contributions up to $25,000, a total of $83,000 was raised for the initiative, which aims to find a broadly applicable cure for AIDS by 2020.

    M·A·C AIDS Fund Chairman John Demsey introduced a rare intimate performance by legendary, influential British rock band New Order, who have enjoyed enduring critical acclaim and sold out myriad stadiums over their more than three decades-long career. The entire crowd danced the night away in the Plaza's Grand Ballroom to a set of the group's much-adored songs including "Bizarre Love Triangle," "Your Silent Face," and "Blue Monday."

    The black-tie benefit, produced by Josh Wood Productions, also featured a gala dinner, a live auction of luxury goods conducted by Paddle 8's Alexander Gilkes, and a full-scale menswear runway show, held in the Plaza's historic Palm Court.

    This year, the world's top menswear designers offered custom-made looks for the runway show featuring the theme of prints. Participating designers included 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Bottega Veneta, Calvin Klein Collection, Christopher Kane, CoSTUME NATIONAL, Diesel Black Gold, Dior Homme, DKNY, Dries Van Noten, Duckie Brown, Etro, Fendi, Hood By Air, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jil Sander, Jonathan Saunders, Kenneth Cole, Kenzo, Kris Van Assche, Lanvin, Lucio Castro, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, McQ By Alexander McQueen, Michael Bastian, Michael Kors, Missoni, Moncler Gamme Bleu, Moschino, Opening Ceremony, Phillip Treacy, Ports 1961, Raf Simons, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, Richard Chai, Rick Owens, Robert Geller, Rodrigo Otazu, Salvatore Ferragamo, Shipley & Halmos, Thom Browne, Tim Hamilton, Todd Snyder, Versace, and Viktor & Rolf. Trew Productions was responsible for the runway production and casting. The runway looks were styled by William Graper. Makeup was be provided by M·A·C Cosmetics, and hair styling was provided by L'Oréal/Hairdressers Against AIDS. Fashion show music was provided by Javier Peral. DJ Mad Marj provided music during dinner.

    The Inspiration Gala was chaired by Matt Bomer, Thom Browne, Adrianna Burrows, Andy Cohen, Alan Cumming, Robert De Niro, John Demsey, Laura Dern, Simon Doonan, James Franco, Cheyenne Jackson, André Leon Talley, Jennifer Lopez, Thakoon Panichgul, Jim Parsons, Vin Roberti, and Patrick Wilson.

    Since its launch in 2010, the Inspiration series has raised $15 million for amfAR, and has been held in such cities as Los Angeles, São Paulo, Paris, Toronto, and Miami. Inspiration events have seen performances from such legendary artists as Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Jennifer Hudson, Scissor Sisters, Cyndi Lauper, Courtney Love, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Sinead O0Connor. Recipients of the event series' Award of Inspiration have included Jennifer Lopez, Alan Cumming, Valentino Garavani, James Franco, Kevin Huvane, Francisco Costa, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Fergie, Michael Kors, Ricky Martin, and Robert Duffy/Marc Jacobs International.

    The Inspiration Gala was presented by M·A·C Viva Glam. Microsoft was the event's Official Technology Partner. Calvin Klein Collection was the event's Gold Sponsor and HBO was the Silver Sponsor. FIJI Water was the event's Official Water Sponsor. The Plaza was the event's Hotel Sponsor. Gloria Ferrer was the Wine and Champagne Sponsor. Delta Air Lines is the Official Airline of amfAR.

  • On July 16-23, President Bill Clinton will travel to India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Australia to visit the work of the Clinton Foundation and deliver remarks at the 20th International AIDS Conference.

    The trip will highlight President Clinton's longstanding commitment to the Asia/Pacific region, as well as the work of the Clinton Foundation on a number of issues that are critical to the region, including global health and improved access to medicines; climate change; and economic development.

    President Clinton has a long commitment to the Asia/Pacific region. As President, he helped enhance global economic growth by responding quickly to the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997, and promoted economic development by elevating the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to a head-of-state event. President Clinton also encouraged inclusive, democratic governance across the region, and worked to promote peace and defuse conflict.

    Since leaving office, President Clinton has focused on the Asia/Pacific region -- working to improve access to life saving medication through the Clinton Health Access Initiative; supporting commitments to global philanthropy through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI); and addressing the causes of climate change through the Clinton Climate Initiative. After the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, President Clinton was named U.N. Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery. Along with President George H.W. Bush, he headed an international effort to help countries devastated by the disaster recover, rebuild, and enjoy stronger economic opportunities. President Clinton traveled to the Asia-Pacific region fourteen times -- eleven as President, and three times as U.N. Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery.

  • Keira Knightley has spoken to The Telegraph about her recent trip to visit refugees in South Sudan with Oxfam.

    "We look at people in faraway countries, on television and we can't quite believe they are the same as us, but they are," she said. "They love their children as we do, they want an education for them, they want to give them a secure home and the freedom to run about in safety. Instead, they watch, powerless, as their toddlers play by the sewage -- there's nowhere else for them."

  • On Friday 4th July the great and the good from the music industry came together at the London Hilton on Park Lane for the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards and Lunch.

    Artists, celebrities and guests turned out in force to support music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, with over £500,000 raised on the day for our work transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults across the UK.

    The Awards kicked off with the Raymond Weil International Award which was presented to superstar Pharrell Williams by surprise guest Bono from U2.

  • UN Women, the United Nations organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women, has announced the appointment of British actress, Emma Watson, as Goodwill Ambassador.

    Best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the ‘Harry Potter' film series, the accomplished actress, humanitarian, and recent graduate of Ivy League institution Brown University, will dedicate her efforts as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador towards the empowerment of young women and will serve as an advocate for UN Women's HeForShe campaign in promoting gender equality.

    "We are thrilled and honoured to work with Emma, whom we believe embodies the values of UN Women," stated Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director, UN Women. "The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century, and I am convinced that Emma's intellect and passion will enable UN Women's messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally," added Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka.

    Ms. Watson has been involved in the promotion of girls' education for several years, and previously visited Bangladesh and Zambia as part of her humanitarian efforts.

    "Being asked to serve as UN Women's Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling. The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly. Women's rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can't imagine an opportunity more exciting. I still have so much to learn, but as I progress I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role," said Ms. Watson.

    Ms. Watson is the first Goodwill Ambassador appointment under Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka's leadership.

  • Over the 4th of July weekend, actor, producer and jewelry designer Adam Shulman and his wife, actress Anne Hathaway, met paparazzi with cardboard signs covering their faces that told viewers to support World of Children Award, a nonprofit that improves the lives of vulnerable children by funding and elevating the most effective changemakers for children worldwide.

    Hathaway's sign read: Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield had a great idea! Please check out www.GirlEffect.org, www.Feeding America.org, www.WorldOfChildren.

    Shulman completed the message with "Happy 4th of July!"

    Last year, Shulman partnered with World of Children Award to design a Limited Edition Key Necklace that featured the nonprofit's signature logo. The necklace was released at the 2013 World of Children Awards Ceremony. 100% of the profits supported World of Children Award's programs serving the needs of vulnerable children.

    Shulman plans to design a new key for this year's World of Children Awards Ceremony in November, which will take place in New York City. To learn more about the Awards Ceremony, visit worldofchildren.org/awardsceremony.

    
World of Children Award improves the lives of vulnerable children by funding and elevating the most effective changemakers for children worldwide.

    Since 1998, World of Children Award has granted more than $6 million in cash grants and program support to 100 humanitarian leaders who are the driving force behind programs serving children worldwide. The organization's exhaustive research and vetting of individuals has been hailed by leading philanthropic organizations. The media often refers to World of Children Award as the Nobel Prize for child advocacy.

    World of Children Award has been featured on The New York Times, The Huffington Post, People, Town & Country, and Harper's Bazaar. World of Children Award Honorees have also been featured by The New York Times, CNN, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fast Company Magazine, People, Glamour, TEEN Vogue, TIME for Kids, USA Today and the Christian Science Monitor, among several other national and international media.

    Most recently, The Huffington Post named World of Children Award's Founders, Harry Leibowitz and Kay Isaacson-Leibowitz, one of the United States' most inspiring "power couples" for their lifetime commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children around the world.

  • Melanie C is giving her support to a project that aims to bring clean energy to places without electricity through the power of music.

    Video: Melanie C (The Spice Girls) - Shake Your Power

    SPARK is a percussion shaker that converts the energy from playing it into electricity. The project is being led by Sudha Kheterpal, percussionist for Faithless.

    "SPARK enables people to generate electricity so that they can plug in a light or charge up a mobile phone, simply through having a music jam," writes Sudha. "In places like Kenya, where 75% of the population live without access to electricity, having the ability to read at night or charge up a mobile phone gives people the chance of a better education and also access to services like the revolutionary mobile phone banking system, M-PESA.

    "I've tested the prototype with a number of different communities in Kenya and have proven it is incredibly useful to people. Children, teachers and village elders have all embraced it.

    "I've been the percussionist with the band Faithless for 15 years, and I've often wondered whether the huge amounts of energy produced from playing at gigs could be harnessed and used. I passionately believe we need to look at how to harness alternative sources of renewable energy that are good for people and the planet.

    "At it's heart this is a project about inter-dependence and togetherness; an invitation for all of us to rise up as guardians of nature and bring power to those who need it. For me, this project is also about connecting people and bringing them together through music. Through the joy of playing music we can create something really useful, changing the world one beat and one shake at a time."

    The Kickstarter campaign needs to raise £50,000 by Thursday, July 10. To find out more and give your support, click here.

  • John Varvatos is proud to feature, on his 74th birthday, Ringo Starr in the Fall 2014 advertising campaign.

    John Varvatos and Ringo Starr Announce Fall 2014 Ad Campaign and Charitable Initiative
    John Varvatos and Ringo Starr Announce Fall 2014 Ad Campaign and Charitable Initiative

    This launch kicks off an initiative that combines the campaign, a short film and a social media component to support The Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund.

    Video: Ringo Starr & Friends for John Varvatos Fall/Winter 2014

    This integrated program raises awareness for the Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund which, through the David Lynch Foundation, helps implement stress-reducing modalities for at-risk populations suffering from epidemic levels of chronic stress and stress-related disorders that fuel violence, crime and soaring health costs.

    The social media components revolve around #PEACEROCKS. This call-to-action encourages participants to share photos of themselves flashing the iconic peace sign via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. For each #PEACEROCKS tagged photo, $1 will be donated through the end of 2014.

    The campaign images were shot by rock photographer Danny Clinch in Los Angeles. Inspired by vintage photographs, Ringo Starr sits on a carved wooden chair with a white dove perched above while flashing his infamous peace sign, thus becoming the signature of the campaign.

    "I've waited a long time to become a male model," Ringo said with a laugh, "and what a great way to do it – all for a good cause. I urge everyone to join us and use #PeaceRocks. For every upload, John will donate a dollar to the Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund that through the David Lynch Foundation teaches meditation to people at risk and suffering. I want to thank John for this campaign and all he has done – what a nice guy, inside and out. So remember, #PeaceRocks and Love Rolls! Peace & Love."

    "Ringo has been a true icon of mine since I was a kid. His music and heart are unique not only in the rock n' roll world but the world in general. Knowing and working with him has been one of the most motivating and stimulating experiences in my life," says Varvatos.

    Friends of Ringo Starr came together to show their support in a 3-minute documentary-style short film which debuts today on johnvarvatos.com/peacerocks.

  • Staples and global pop music superstar Katy Perry continue to "Make Roar Happen" in Manhattan today by announcing 144 local classroom projects have been funded as part of Staples' $1 million donation to DonorsChoose.org.

    Staples fully funded every DonorsChoose.org classroom project from schools located in Manhattan today. This $149,430.51 donation helped 103 teachers fulfill classroom needs and helped more than 11,000 students in Manhattan. For example, Jennifer Nelson at the Future Leaders Institute Charter School will receive funding for a three day field trip to Washington, D.C.; and Christine Fryer at the High School Law Advocacy/Community Justice will receive dictionaries, books and supplies for her Advanced Placement World History class.

    "I'm glad to partner with Staples on my Prismatic World Tour to raise awareness and funds for DonorsChoose.org, and to remind my fans that a small gesture can have a huge impact on the very basic materials classrooms need for teachers to help students reach their full potential," said Katy Perry.

    Staples and Katy Perry teamed up to "Make Roar Happen" and support teachers. Through the "Make Roar Happen" program, Katy Perry will help Staples raise awareness of how to help teachers with a $1 donation either in store or on Staples.com. As part of the program, Staples, the presenting sponsor of the North American leg of the Katy Perry Prismatic World Tour, donated $1 million to DonorsChoose.org, a charity which has helped fund more than 450,000 classroom projects for teachers and impacted more than 11 million students. $149,430.51 of that donation went to Manhattan classrooms today.

  • SportsAid has launched its Elton John Sports Fund with more than £300,000 raised at an acclaimed concert by Elton John at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire on Saturday June 28.

    The fund will support some of Britain's brightest prospects from more than 50 sports by providing annual awards of £2,000 to help with essential training and competition costs.

    "Thanks to your support," Elton said to a crowd of 5,000 fans during the concert, "we will be able to fund young athletes for the next eight years to help make their dreams come true. Thank you!"

    One of the first SportsAid athletes to benefit from the Elton John Sports Fund is 16-year-old rower Molly Harding from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire who had the privilege of receiving her cheque from Elton just before he went on stage.

    Molly said, "Never would I have thought that I would be receiving this award, let alone receiving it from the man himself! To know that SportsAid and others see this potential in me really gives me that encouragement to believe that I will be next. The whole experience was very overwhelming."

    She added, "This support has come at a time that I need it most. With events that I'm hoping to be selected for such as the world junior rowing championships I'm going to need this money to help pay for the costs of travelling."

    Also receiving £2,000 cheques from Elton on the night were 17-year-old sprinter Daryll Neita from Lee in south east London, 14-year-old swimmer Holly Hibbott from Southport in Merseyside, 17-year-old sprinter James Arnott from Plymouth in Devon and 15-year-old cyclist Fred Wright from Herne Hill in London.

    On meeting them Elton said, "It was a special moment to meet the first five young athletes to benefit from the fund. Their successes are already very impressive, and with a little extra help and recognition who knows what they could go on to achieve. They are the reason we were all at Stoke Park for the concert. Working with SportsAid, we know we are helping the right athletes at the right time."

    Former SportsAid beneficiaries who were there to pledge their support included Steve Redgrave, Katherine Grainger, Keri-Anne Payne, Ade Adepitan, Mark Foster, Derek Redmond, Gail Emms, Duncan Goodhew, Danny Crates, Anna Watkins, Mark Hunter, Zac Purchase, Richard Hounslow, Sarah Winckless, Shelley Rudman, Heather Stanning, Karen Pickering, Beth Rodford and Steve Williams.

    Zac Purchase said, "I remember receiving my first SportsAid Award as a young athlete and it is one of those wonderful moments in life when someone turns around to you and says, ‘you know what, we think you could be good'. And now you look back at SportsAid's alumni and how many of them go on to achieve great things, and it just goes to show that SportsAid gets it so right when selecting which athletes to support, giving them the confidence boost to go out and perform even better in the future."

    During a superb performance Elton John treated the crowd to many of his best hits -- including Your Song, Rocket Man and Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me -- to a fantastic reception.

    "Such a great show at Stoke Park last night," said Rob Smith from Laurent-Perrier. "Great support for SportsAid and a night that will live long in the memory."

    World canoe-slalom champion Richard Hounslow tweeted, "The @TeamSportsAid & @eltonjohndotcom put on an amazing show last night. #ForTheNextGeneration."

    "We had a great night on Saturday," Elton said after the concert. "The place was buzzing and it was fun to see so many Olympians and Paralympians dancing in amongst the crowd. What a great way to help our next generation of champions."

  • Mia Farrow, renowned actress, activist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, has just completed her fourth visit to the Central African Republic where she saw the impact of extreme violence and met people with stories of inspiring courage.

    Video: In the Central African Republic with Mia Farrow

    "In 2007, I made the first of what would now be four visits to the Central African Republic. I must have left a part of my heart here," Farrow said, speaking from Bangui. "The courage and resilience of defenceless people facing shocking and unacceptable levels of violence is unforgettable and profoundly inspiring."

    In the town of Boda, more than four hours' drive from the capital, Farrow met with internally displaced Muslim families trapped in an enclave surrounded by armed groups hostile to them, who spoke of living in constant fear of attacks. At the only school still functioning in town, some 400 children were crammed into three classrooms. Parents were volunteering to teach after most of the school's teachers fled for their lives.

    In Bangui, Farrow spoke to a health worker who, for security reasons, was no longer able to get to her job at the main hospital and was instead volunteering to treat women and children in a health centre in her community.

    More than 2.3 million children are suffering the consequences of the crisis rocking the country. Children have been directly targeted. On average, at least one child has been maimed or killed in clashes every day in the past six months. Malnutrition rates are high and the number of children associated with armed groups could be as high as 10,000, according to the Ministry of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration. One in three children who were enrolled in the last school year did not go back to school this year.

    "We need the support of the international community to help provide security so that schools can be rebuilt and children can safely return to them," Farrow said.

    During a meeting with Central African Interim President Catherine Samba-Panza, Farrow stressed the importance of security, education and the urgent need for access to basic services so that families can rebuild their lives and children can hope for a brighter future.

    Across the country, UNICEF has provided over 43,000 students with school supplies and set up temporary learning spaces for 24,000 children since the beginning of the year. UNICEF is also improving health services, including by distributing insecticide-treated mosquito nets, providing safe drinking water, offering HIV counselling to pregnant women and vaccinating children against polio and measles. Since January, more than 10,000 children under the age of five received treatment for severe malnutrition.

    After over two years of violence, growing needs and limited funding, more support is urgently needed to save children's lives.

    The Royals joined Jamal Edwards – internet entrepreneur and founder of the youth channel SBTV – to kick off the Queen's Young Leaders programme to find inspirational young people who are making a difference.

    On behalf of The Queen, Their Royal Highnesses were launching the awards which have been set up in recognition of Her Majesty's 60 years of service to the Commonwealth.

    Exceptional people aged 18-29 will receive awards for leading the way where they live and the awards scheme will support them to do even more life-changing work in their communities.

    Grants will be made to organisations in selected Commonwealth countries that can show they are improving the lives of young people. The grants will help individuals gain new skills, employment and a voice in their communities. The programme is a partnership between Comic Relief, The Diamond Jubilee Trust and the Royal Commonwealth Society.

  • The Global Citizen movement continues its campaign to achieve a world without extreme poverty by 2030 with the third annual Global Citizen Festival, a free ticketed concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park.

    The 2014 Global Citizen Festival will be headlined by JAY Z, No Doubt, Carrie Underwood, fun., The Roots and Tiesto, on Saturday, September 27, 2014.

    MSNBC and NBC News will serve as official media partners for this year's Festival. For the first time ever, the Festival will air live on television with MSNBC carrying the full concert on cable and msnbc.com. In addition, NBC News will produce a one-hour primetime special of the event to air on NBC at 9 p.m. on September 27. MSNBC and NBC News will also highlight the issues surrounding global poverty in the coming months.

    Starting today, free tickets to the Festival are available by participating in online actions here, where users take "action" to earn their admission. By signing petitions, emailing world leaders and sharing content with their social networks, fans become active participants in campaigning for positive change as they earn points that can be used to enter the prize draw to win free tickets. Ticket draws will occur throughout the summer and fans will be notified via Ticketmaster when they have been selected. A limited number of VIP tickets will also be available for purchase through Ticketmaster. For the third year in a row, Citi is proud partner of the Global Citizen Festival and Citi credit card members will have exclusive access to VIP offers at the early bird pricing.

    The Festival coincides with the UN General Assembly and will serve as a high-profile platform to call for tangible commitments from world leaders in the areas of vaccines, education and sanitation. Major campaigns tied to this year's Festival include: securing contributions for the GAVI Alliance and the Global Partnership for Education, and building momentum by citizens for the Water for the World Act, a Congressional bill that will support efforts to benefit the 1.25 billion women and girls that currently go without safe access to sanitation.

    This year's Festival will also focus on ensuring that all the world's children and young people can survive and thrive. It will support a UNFPA-led global campaign to ensure the rights of adolescents and youth, especially girls, are firmly included in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Global Citizens will be calling on all governments to prioritize investments for young people across crucial areas of education, reproductive health and safety from violence.

    The Festival is only possible due to the incredible support from Mayor Bill de Blasio and his administration, which is creating new educational opportunities this fall for thousands of New York City's children with the introduction of universal pre-kindergarten and expanded after-school programs across the five boroughs.

    "In the last 15 years, the world has seen the most successful anti-poverty push in history," said Hugh Evans, CEO of The Global Poverty Project. "Thanks to the political leadership, global investment and significant policy changes generated over the last several years, ending extreme poverty by 2030 is within our reach, but we need to continue to change the systems that contribute to the social injustice of extreme poverty. To do so, we must engage Global Citizens to create a groundswell of support our world leaders cannot ignore."

    Shawn "JAY Z" Carter stated, "Change only takes place when and where there is action. I'm joining the 2014 Global Citizen Festival because I believe through actions, whether it be by raising awareness, getting involved or educating ourselves, the goal to end extreme poverty by 2030 is possible."

    No Doubt issued a statement saying, "Our earliest musical influences were artists from around the world who made us aware of issues beyond our own backyards. We hope to continue that tradition of raising awareness by joining an incredible group of performers on stage at the Global Citizen Festival to shine a light on the unacceptable fact that over 1.2 billion people on our planet still live in extreme poverty."

    "I believe we all have the ability to make our world a better place. Positive change is possible when we work together, and this Festival is a hopeful opportunity for all of us to help see an end to extreme poverty," said Carrie Underwood.

    On their participation in the Festival, fun. stated, "We believe that everyone should have equal rights. We look forward to performing with these incredible artists as we rally our fans to join us in helping to make the world a better, more equal place."

    In a statement from The Roots, the group said, "Every day we hear stories of people who are looking for a helping hand. We look forward to joining the thousands of global citizens on the Great Lawn who recognize we live in an interdependent world where our actions can positively affect the lives of others across the globe."

    World renowned EDM headliner Tiesto stated, "I am very excited to perform at this year's Global Citizen Festival and continue my support for protecting the world's children. I'm asking my fans to join me and call on our world leaders to bring about real change that will help our children live healthy, strong lives."

    One of the first "actions" fans can complete is the signing of a petition calling on world leaders to contribute $7.5 billion to the GAVI Alliance, which provides lifesaving vaccines to children in poor countries. This funding would enable the GAVI Alliance to help immunize 300 million children by 2020, which will help save the lives of 5 million to 6 million children worldwide.

    "The GAVI Alliance is striving to see every child, everywhere is immunized with life-saving vaccines," said Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance. "With funding, we can massively increase the impact of immunization in the poorest countries by 2020. By signing this important petition and becoming a Global Citizen, you will ensure that children get the vaccines they need to be healthy, go to school and help pull their communities out of poverty."

    This year's Festival will build on previous Global Citizen Festivals, which in 2013, included performances by Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Kings Of Leon, and Elvis Costello, and in 2012, was headlined by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, K0naan and John Legend, and will aim to generate more than two million actions in support of the world's poor. Since the Festival's inception in 2012, actions taken by concertgoers have resulted in $1.3 billion dollars in new funding and 35 commitments from world leaders that directly benefit the world's poor.

    The proud partners of the 2014 Global Citizen Festival are Caterpillar Inc., Citi, World Childhood Foundation, The Riot House, Noise 4 Good, EKOCYCLE and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. The Festival has also partnered with leading non-profit groups, including: UNFPA, the Global Partnership for Education, GAVI Alliance, The Malala Fund, WaterAid America, Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council, WASH Advocates, U.S. Fund for UNICEF, and more.

    "The Global Citizen Festival brings together a stellar lineup to support an immensely important cause, at an iconic venue in Central Park," said Jennifer Breithaupt, SVP of Entertainment Marketing at Citi. "We are honored to sponsor again for the third year, to be the presenting partner of the VIP tent and offer our cardmembers VIP access to what will certainly be an impactful and memorable event."

    People everywhere are invited to sign-up, take actions, and enter the prize draws for free tickets. In total, 48,000 free tickets to the Festival will be given out to Global Citizens. For more information about the artists, schedules, and event, please visit www.globalcitizenfestival.com.

  • Building on three historic fundraising telecasts in 2008, 2010 and 2012, the groundbreaking grassroots movement Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), will return to primetime television on Friday, September 5, 2014, at 8 pm ET & PT / 7 pm CT.

    Returning for the second time as Executive Producers of the September 5th telecast are Emmy-winning producer Joel Gallen, president of Tenth Planet Productions, and Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Gallen and Paltrow will be joined by the SU2C Production Team to deliver a one-of-a-kind show featuring performances from top recording artists and celebrities from film and television, engaging viewers with powerful stories of remarkable progress being made by SU2C-funded research.

    ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, along with American Forces Network, Bravo, Cooking Channel, Discovery Fit & Health, E!, Encore, Encore Espanol, EPIX, ESPNews, FOX Sports 2, FXM, HBO, HBO Latino, ION Television, Lifetime Movie Network, Logo TV, MLB Network, National Geographic Channel, Oxygen, Palladia, Pivot, SHOWTIME, Smithsonian Channel, Starz, TNT and VH1 are donating one hour of simultaneous commercial-free primetime for the nationally televised fundraising special on Friday, September 5, to be broadcast live from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

    "We are all in this mission together: to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors. It is an honor to be part of a show and a movement that sets a great challenge and works tirelessly to meet it," Gallen said. "This terrible disease has taken too many loved ones and on this special night, we're working together to raise awareness and funds for the groundbreaking research that is saving people's lives. This year, our commitment is stronger than ever -- we expect the top names in film, television, and music, to join us on September 5th."

    "Cancer profoundly touched my life when I lost my father to the disease twelve years ago, and Stand Up To Cancer gives me a powerful platform to fight for a cause that I'm passionate about," said Paltrow. "I am thrilled to join Joel Gallen to executive produce the Stand Up To Cancer telecast again this year, and honored to continue standing up in my father's memory," she said.

    This star-studded appeal will continue to build public support to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly to save lives and make cancer patients long-term cancer survivors. SU2C brings together scientists from different disciplines across institutions and international boundaries to work collaboratively on promising new treatments that will impact a wide range of cancer types.

    During the broadcast, celebrities will use an on-stage digital lounge to interact with viewers via social media. Viewers will be able to donate via a toll-free number, standup2cancer.org and text-to-give. One hundred percent of the donations received from the public during the show go to support collaborative cancer research programs.

    For the first time, there will be a Canadian co-broadcast of the 2014 telecast presenting Canada-specific content, which will air simultaneously on all four major English-language Canadian networks: CBC, City, CTV and Global. All funds received from the Canadian general public during the Stand Up To Cancer Canada broadcast will be directed towards the creation of collaborative research teams, as well as education and awareness programs conducted in Canada.

    Gallen previously produced several extremely successful televised fundraising specials including "America: A Tribute to Heroes" (after 9/11), "Shelter from the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast," and "Hope for Haiti Now." Music was a key element of each. He also produced and directed the "25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert."

    The legendary film producer Laura Ziskin, who was a co-founder of SU2C, executive produced the first two telecasts in 2008 and 2010. Ziskin lived with breast cancer for seven years before it took her life in June of 2011.

    Talent participation in the 2014 SU2C broadcast will be announced throughout the summer. Past participants in the SU2C broadcasts include: Jennifer Aniston, Christina Applegate, Halle Berry, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Jack Black, Mary J. Blige, Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Coldplay, Katie Couric, Sheryl Crow, Matt Damon, Ellen DeGeneres, Dana Delany, Michael Douglas, Kirsten Dunst, Melissa Etheridge, Jimmy Fallon, Fergie, Jennifer Garner, Charles Gibson, Tom Hanks, Salma Hayek, Marg Helgenberger, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Samuel L. Jackson, Ken Jeong, Scarlett Johansson, Minka Kelly, Alicia Keys, Jamie King, Lady Antebellum, Jay Leno, Tobey Maguire, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, Jillian Michaels, Jim Parsons, Keanu Reeves, Jeremy Renner, Rihanna, Julia Roberts, Robin Roberts, Seth Rogen, Ray Romano, Adam Sandler, Diane Sawyer, Ryan Seacrest, Will Smith, Emma Stone, Eric Stonestreet, Meryl Streep, Alison Sweeney, Taylor Swift, James Taylor, Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Sofia Vergara, Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Brian Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Stevie Wonder, Renee Zellweger, the late Patrick Swayze and others.

    "When we launched Stand Up To Cancer, our goal was to approach the struggle against cancer in a different way. Just six years into this movement, the incredible generosity of our donors -- of every level -- has enabled major progress in developing new treatments," said Katie Couric, a co-founder of SU2C. "This program offers a unique opp‎ortunity to share the story of our progress and to remind viewers that each and every individual can play a role in supporting these scientists and their tireless work on behalf of patients," she added.

    "None of SU2C's groundbreaking research accomplishments would have been possible without the ongoing support of the entertainment industry," said Sherry Lansing, also a co-founder of SU2C, as well as founder of the Sherry Lansing Foundation and chair of the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Board of Directors. "From the network and cable executives donating unprecedented "roadblock" airtime, to the hundreds of stars who volunteer their time and talent to help us engage the public in this effort, we are profoundly grateful to the entire entertainment community and humbled by the impact that is possible when we unite in support of a cause that affects us all," she said.

    The first three SU2C telecasts took place on September 5, 2008, September 10, 2010 and September 7, 2012, and were made available to more than 190 countries. To date, more than $261 million has been pledged to support SU2C's innovative cancer research programs. Since 2008, SU2C has funded 12 "Dream Teams" of researchers and two translational research teams, as well as 26 young innovative scientists whose high-risk, potentially high-reward projects are aimed at ending cancer's reign as a leading cause of death worldwide.

    SU2C was founded on the belief that collaboration would play an integral role in advancing cancer research. To date, Stand Up To Cancer has brought together more than 750 of the best and the brightest research scientists from 112 institutions in six countries to work together in order to save lives now. SU2C-funded researchers have planned, launched or completed more than 140 clinical trials.

    One in two men and one in three women in the U.S. are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, and almost eight million people worldwide die from cancer every year.

    Researchers supported by SU2C are investigating a wide variety of new approaches to various malignancies, including cancers of the breast, ovary, endometrium, lung, prostate, pancreas, and colon; metastatic melanoma; childhood cancers including leukemia and lymphoma; and cancers resulting from human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, among other forms of cancer.

    Work by SU2C-supported researchers has led to approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of a new combination treatment for pancreatic cancer, as well as FDA "breakthrough therapy" designation — intended to expedite development of especially promising medicines — for a new breast cancer drug.

    The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research and its mission to prevent and cure cancer, is the official Scientific Partner of Stand Up To Cancer. In the United States, AACR is responsible for administering the grants and providing scientific oversight in conjunction with the SU2C Scientific Advisory Committee, chaired by Nobel Laureate Phillip A. Sharp, Ph.D., Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. Vice chairs of the SAC are Arnold J. Levine, Ph.D., Professor, Institute for Advanced Study and Cancer Institute of New Jersey; and William G. Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore.

    As SU2C's founding donor, Major League Baseball has provided both financial support and countless opportunities to build the Stand Up To Cancer grassroots movement by encouraging fans all over the country to get involved. In addition to MLB, SU2C's "Visionary" donors include Cancer Treatment Centers of America, MasterCard, and The Sidney Kimmel Foundation for Cancer Research.

    "Stand Up To Cancer could not have made such rapid progress towards improving patient care and saving lives without the unparalleled commitment of our major donors," said SU2C co-founder Rusty Robertson. "They've believed in SU2C's collaborative funding model since the outset, and have played a critical role in helping grow SU2C's movement. We couldn't be more grateful," added SU2C co-founder Sue Schwartz.

    "While it's gratifying to know that SU2C has already brought hope to thousands of patients, we know there's still so much more to do to make everyone diagnosed with cancer a long-term survivor," said Sung Poblete, Ph.D., R.N., president and CEO of Stand Up To Cancer. "Every individual can make a difference in that effort, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to bring that message to the public again with this year's telecast."

  • DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit organization for young people and social change, and pop quintet Fifth Harmony (Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello, and Dinah Hansen) announce the launch of the #ImABoss campaign that encourages fans to share with their friends what makes them amazing, unique, or strong.

    The campaign is in the spirit of Fifth Harmony's new single "BO$$" from their upcoming debut full-length album which will be released this Fall.

    Seven in ten girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members. Owning and sharing personal traits and skills is proven to improve self worth and boost confidence, which is why DoSomething.org and Fifth Harmony are encouraging fans to help their friends find out what they're the boss of.

    The campaign runs from July 9 to September 9 and asks young people to make a sign for their friend that says "I'm the boss of…" and snap a photo of them holding up a sign to share why their friends think they're unique. The campaign will run throughout their summer tour with Austin Mahone.

    "We believe that everyone is the boss of something," said Ally Brooke. "The #ImABoss campaign is exactly in line with our new single BO$$ because it's all about owning and sharing what makes you confident and strong."

    "We're fangirling over working with Fifth Harmony this summer and excited to see Harmonizers across the country take action on an important cause," said Naomi Hirabayashi, Chief Marketing Officer at DoSomething.org. "As the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change, working with Fifth Harmony is the perfect fit to encourage young people to spread message of self worth and confidence with their friends."

    As a part of the #ImABoss campaign, fans can enter to win prizes including the chance to meet Fifth Harmony and act as their "boss" for the day, a total of $12,500 in scholarship money, and the chance for their picture to be featured on the #ImABoss microsite.

    To participate, young people can sign up and share their photos at www.dosomething.org/boss or text BOSS to 38383.

  • Viacom Velocity Creative has partnered with Mariska Hargitay, founder of the Joyful Heart Foundation, to create a star-studded NO MORE PSA Campaign.

    NO MORE is a public awareness movement aimed to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault. The PSAs will feature a unique collaboration of celebrities including: Courteney Cox, Dave Navarro, Sophia Bush, Sway Calloway, Nick Lachey, Bow Wow, Danny Pino, Debra Messing, Samantha Ronson and Ice-T.

    The new Viacom Velocity-produced PSAs will air throughout the summer across Viacom's networks – MTV, Spike, Comedy Central, TV Land, BET and more.

    "For the first time in history, the domestic violence and sexual assault movements are coming together under one symbol and one unifying message: "NO MORE. Together we can end domestic violence and sexual assault." You can't overstate the significance of that unity," said Mariska. "Because these issues have been so underfunded, organizations have had to stand out — and, by definition, stand alone — to receive support: "We're not like that organization over there, so please honor our grant request, and not theirs." It's not that explicitly stated, but that's the spirit in which they've had no choice but to work.

    "But that is changing. It's not a coincidence that the first word in the NO MORE declaration is "Together." That's very good news for those working to end this violence. At the same time, that unity is bad news for perpetrators. They benefit from silence, from a spirit of scarcity in the movement, from fractured efforts against them. To all of that, we say: NO MORE. Over the next three years, the PSA campaign will roll out across the country in local and national markets via print, broadcast, online and outdoor advertising, in movie theaters across the country, and in major airports and medical facilities.

    "In other words, it will be impossible to ignore. It will also allow us to develop new and meaningful partnerships with visionary organizations like Viacom to spread this message. And most importantly, it will give the field of hardworking organizations that have done so much with so little over the past 40 years a tool to highlight and validate their own work, their own local media relationships, and their own fight to be heard."

    Additional celebrities in the PSAs include: Blythe Danner, Anthony Edwards, Tim Gunn, Jemima Kirke, Natasha Lyonne, Christopher Meloni and Blair Underwood.

  • Usher0s New Look, the non-profit organization founded by Usher Raymond IV committed to developing future leaders, will celebrate its 15th anniversary at the 2014 President's Circle Awards Luncheon on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at the St. Regis, Atlanta.

    Rapper and Actor Ludacris will join Usher to emcee the event, and Josh Kaufman, season 6 winner of ‘The Voice,' will perform. The Luncheon is an opportunity for New Look's supporters, community influencers, and high-profile individuals to come together and recognize the power of New Look and the incredible work that has transformed the lives of thousands of young people around the globe over the past 15 years.

    "What started as an annual week-long camp for kids from underserved communities to come together, make lasting friendships and feel empowered to become something one day, has evolved into a global organization that has impacted thousands of youth around the world," said Usher Raymond IV. "I'm unbelievably proud of the accomplishments of each and every New Look youth leader, and I feel confident that we are truly shaping the next generation of leaders."

    Each year, New Look honors and recognizes the diverse ways individuals, organizations and corporations are empowering youth as leaders and change agents around the world.

    Mayor Kasim Reed will be presented with New Look's Service Legacy Award for his unwavering commitment to investing in initiatives that support youth education and their futures. Cory Nettles, New Look Board Member and founder and Managing Director of Generation Growth Capital, Inc., will be honored with the Servant Leadership Award for his guidance and expertise in the strategic development of New Look's goals. General Electric will receive the Youth Catalyst Award for their ongoing commitment to providing New Look youth leaders with incredible opportunities through their internship program. Kami Luigs, Executive of Citizenship and Volunteerism at GE will accept the award on GE's behalf.

    Mary-Pat Hector and Jasmine Pollard, two dynamic New Look youth leaders, will be presented with the Global Youth Leadership Award. Mary-Pat first became involved with New Look in 2011 and since then, has become a true model of New Look's mission. From her steadfast dedication to activism and youth-targeted service projects, she has made it her duty to make the world a better place for young people. In 2013, she launched her own anti-gun violence initiative called ‘Think Twice', a campaign using statistics and graphic images about gun violence to encourage young people to say no to guns. She was awarded a $50k grant for this work from Peace First, a national nonprofit dedicated to teaching peacemaking skills to young people.

    Jasmine became involved with New Look in 2006 as a seventh grader, and despite hardships and many obstacles she has faced along the way, Jasmine's story has become one of New Look's most uplifting success stories. She is constantly using her talent as a singer to create change in her community and raise awareness for a variety of causes that are important to her. This spring, Jasmine will graduate from Georgia Southern University as a first generation college grad.

    Supporters of the 2014 President's Circle Awards Luncheon include: Accenture, Bank of America, The Coca-Cola Company, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, Georgia Power Company, PayPal, Inc., Quarles & Brady, LLP, and Southwest Airlines.

  • Mandy Moore has teamed up with the Purina Cat Chow "Building Better Lives" program to help increase cat adoptions.

    Every cat has a tale and for many, it starts at a shelter. All cats deserve a forever home where they can greet their owners at the door, bask in a sunbeam and nap on their favorite perch.

    Today, Purina Cat Chow announced that through its Purina Cat Chow "Building Better Lives" program the brand will donate $275,000 to 50 shelters nationwide -- one in every state -- in renovation and adoption support, product and monetary donations, as well as a possible $50,000 donation to The Petfinder Foundation, for a total contribution of up to $325,000.

    The Purina Cat Chow "Building Better Lives" program is committed to helping improve the lives of cats across the United States by providing high-quality, affordable nutrition; improving shelters; and finding more cats forever homes. This year, Purina Cat Chow will help support the participating 50 cat-focused shelters by:

    * Contributing up to $50,000 to The Petfinder Foundation if 1,500 cat adoption stories are shared;
    * Conducting three shelter renovations and cat adoption events at $50,000 apiece, totaling $150,000; and
    * Donating $2,500 in cash and Purina Cat Chow brand cat food per shelter, totaling $125,000.

    In two years, Purina Cat Chow will donate more than $500,000 to more than 100 local cat-focused shelters nationwide to help improve the lives of cats.

    Share Your Cat Rescue Story to Help Petfinder Shelters
    
Purina Cat Chow will donate up to $50,000 to The Petfinder Foundation if from now until Sept. 2, at least 1,500 stories are shared with the brand's social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) using the hashtag #myrescuestory. This donation will be used to support 50 Petfinder.com shelters to help support future cat adoption fees.

    "With millions of cats entering animal welfare organizations each year, we know there is a lot of work to do and we're committed to supporting the shelters that care for these cats," said Vincent Biroscak, Purina Cat Chow brand director. "We want rescue cats to have a great place to live and high-quality nutrition while they're awaiting their forever homes and to provide the much-needed support to the dedicated animal welfare organizations that care for these cats.

    "In addition, we know there are millions of cat adoption stories that take place every year, and we're excited to hear these heartwarming tales that owners share with us using #myrescuestory."

    Mandy Moore, well-known actress and singer-songwriter who is also a passionate cat owner, teamed up with the Purina Cat Chow "Building Better Lives" program to help increase cat adoptions and encourage cat people nationwide to share their cat rescue stories to support the shelters that help cats every day. Moore shares her home with four rescue cats: Theo, Vincent, Maddie and Addison as well as two rescue dogs. She is a long-time supporter of animal rescue organizations.

    "I have four rescue cats and believe in the importance of supporting local animal welfare organizations," said Moore. "Everyone who has ever adopted or rescued a cat can share how it has impacted their life. Rescue cats have a lot to offer their potential adopters, and I hope these stories encourage more people to consider adding a cat to their home."

    Committed to Shelters, Adoptions and Nutrition
    
Transforming shelters through renovations and adoption events: Purina Cat Chow will make over three shelters between July and August, 2014, valued at $50,000 each or $150,000 total.

    Renovations will include custom changes and upgrades, such as building free-roam cat rooms, painting and refreshing lobbies, to meet the specific needs for each facility. To celebrate the completion of each makeover, Purina Cat Chow will conduct a "Building Better Lives" adoption event at each shelter whereby the brand will help local cats find a new home during the event. Members of the Purina Cat Chow brand team will volunteer their time and talents during each renovation and adoption event.

    The renovation and adoption events are occurring at:
    * MaxFund Animal Adoption Center Denver, Co. July 11-12, 2014
    * City of Rogers Animal Shelter Rogers, Ark. July 24, 2014
    * Animal Humane Society Golden Valley, Minn. August 20, 2014

    Transforming Cats' Lives through Nutrition and Resources
    
Purina Cat Chow will also support 50 shelters nationwide -- one in every state -- via cash and cat food donations. Each participating shelter will receive a donation valued at $2,500 -- $2,000 in cash to support future cat adoptions and $500 worth of Purina Cat Chow brand cat food.

    Purina Cat Chow is dedicated to helping shelters feed cats high-quality food while awaiting forever homes. In addition to the cash donation to subsidize adoption fees, Purina Cat Chow will send each shelter Purina Cat Chow Complete Formula brand cat food to make sure each cat is fed high-quality, nutritious food.

    The Purina Cat Chow "Building Better Lives" program is building on the 2013 "50 Years. 50 Shelters." program that touched the lives of more than 13,200 cats through four shelter renovations; delivered more than 12,000 pounds of Purina Cat Chow brand cat food and 8,000 cat care supply items; and gave a total of $75,000 in cash donations among 50 shelters.

  • The Metropolitan Police Service Wildlife Crime Unit, in partnership with animal welfare and conservation NGOs, has announced a call for Londoners to donate items made from elephant ivory and other wildlife products from endangered species.

    The call for donations will run across London police stations until the end of the month and is supported by actor Ricky Gervais.

    "This is an opportunity for Londoners to show their support and to protect animals from the illegal wildlife trade by giving away any unwanted items made from endangered species such as elephants, tigers and rhinos," says Ricky Gervais, an active animal supporter.

    DC Sarah Bailey, Metropolitan Police Wildlife Crime Unit, adds: "Members of the public are encouraged to take unwanted items to their local police station, so that the items can be destroyed or used for educating the public about the illegal trade in animal parts and its impact on species in the wild."

    The call comes from Operation Charm, a partnership between the Met Police Wildlife Crime Unit and NGOs to combat the illegal trade in endangered species in London. The call for donations of ivory and other endangered wildlife products is a positive and supportive response to the declaration made to combat illegal wildlife trade at the Government-hosted London Conference held in February 2014.

    At the Conference, Heads of State, Ministers and high-level representatives of 41 countries discussed the illegal wildlife trade and its effect on species such as elephants, tigers and rhinos, recognising the importance of tackling wildlife crime at an international level. The conference highlighted that reducing consumer demand for illegal wildlife products, in addition to strengthening law enforcement and the criminal justice system, are key tools in combating the illegal trade.

    DC Bailey continued: "Many people may have unwanted wildlife products such as family heirlooms or souvenirs from trips abroad that they no longer wish to own or sell but are unsure how to dispose of them. Items could include ivory carvings, rhino horn, big cat skins and furs, tortoiseshell, reptile skin accessories, taxidermy of endangered species, amongst others."

    DS Adam Dean from the WCU added: "If anyone has any information regarding wildlife crime in the capital please contact us 0207 230 8898 or wildlife@met.police.co.uk or anonymously at Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

    Facts about the Illegal Wildlife Trade

    · The illegal wildlife trade is estimated to be worth more than £11.5billion globally
    · One elephant is killed every fifteen minutes
    · Rhino poaching increased over 7500% between 2007 and 2013
    · There are as few as 3,200 tigers remaining in the wild, and trade in their parts and products is a major threat.

  • Award-winning Journalist Soledad O0Brien – along with her husband Brad Raymond – will host the annual fundraising event, "New Orleans to New York City Gala" on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at Espace in New York.

    The celebration is the biggest night of the year for the Starfish Foundation, created to provide promising young women a bridge between obstacles and opportunities. Party guests will enjoy a cocktail reception followed by the evening's festivities which will include a special music performance by members of the Grammy Award-Winning trumpeter Irvin Mayfield and members of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. The event is proudly sponsored by American Family Insurance.

    "We are excited to host The New Orleans to New York City Gala for the fourth consecutive year," said O'Brien. "It is always a great gathering as we honor our scholars and the commitment they've shown to pursuing their education. I look forward to celebrating with them and our supporters in a festive evening."

    The annual gala will begin with an outdoor cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m., preceded by main event and concert at 7:00 p.m. All proceeds from ticket sales for the "New Orleans to New York City Gala" will fund scholarships for young women awarded by the Soledad O'Brien and Brad Raymond Starfish Foundation.

    After witnessing the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina in 2006, O'Brien and Raymond began privately awarding scholarships to young women who didn't have the resources for success. As their efforts grew, they officially formed the Starfish Foundation to expand their reach and help even more young women. Today the Starfish Foundation provides scholarships to disadvantaged young women in under-served communities and is committed to giving more than just financial assistance to its scholarship honorees. The Foundation creates a customized support program for each participant that reflects that person's specific needs. To date, they have provided support to 28 young women.

    O'Brien is an award-winning journalist -- she has been a writer, producer, reporter and a TV news anchor for NBC stations locally, NBC network news and CNN. About a year ago, O'Brien left CNN to start her own production and distribution company called Starfish Media Group. The company focuses on telling stories that often fly under the radar. O'Brien has won many awards including three Emmys she won for reporting in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and the 2012 election. She's travelled the globe telling stories, but her two favorite places are New Orleans where her Foundation was launched after Hurricane Katrina and New York City where she lives with her husband and four kids.

  • The Prince of Wales, President of Business in the Community was joined by his sons The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry earlier this week as he attended the annual responsible business awards.

    As they arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the evening event, they were greeted by hosts comedian David Walliams and F1 presenter Natalie Pinkham.

    Some 1,400 guests gathered for the event which featured performances by the Military Wives Choir and poet George Mpanga.

    The Prince of Wales, who is President of the Business in the Community (BITC) charity, gave a keynote speech and urged business leaders to create more training and job opportunities for former military personnel.
    


    He said: "I want to look at a situation, which is just as big a concern to my sons as it is to me, where fortune very often does not favour the brave.
    


    "And that is in the opportunities available to our troops when they return home and seek employment outside the armed forces. Loyalty, integrity, teamwork and the ability to work calmly and with discipline and good humour under intense pressure are qualities that any business must surely value highly.

    
"However the transition is by no means easy, and we should not pretend it is, even for the able-bodied. For those who have been wounded, of course, the difficulties are greater still."

The Prince, who has served with the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, added: "One of the biggest differences the corporate sector can make, is the development of the skills needed to fill the skills gaps and create the employment and economic independence that enable individuals to contribute fully to the community in which they live.

    "Employers must look for new ways to unlock talent – the extra steps they must take to find it and, most importantly, what they must do to ensure that their own practices do not disadvantage talented individuals because of the circumstances in which they find themselves."

    His Royal Highness, who visited the flood-hit Somerset Levels earlier in the day, said more had to be done to create a "genuinely sustainable economy".

    

"The prosperity of business and society and the whole of the natural environment on which we depend for our ultimate survival are intimately tied together. One cannot succeed without the other," he said. "For the three of them to flourish we must create a more circular and genuinely sustainable economy.



    "The recent flooding events across Great Britain demonstrate how vulnerable our economies and communities can be.



    "I have seen the effects of this first hand, after floods in places like Braunton, Yalding and the Somerset Levels, which I revised only today, to see how people are recovering from the after effects."

    During his speech, The Prince revealed that Marks and Spencer chief executive Marc Bolland would be the new Prince's National Ambassador for Responsible Business. He will work with regional ambassadors to encourage responsible business practices across the UK.

    The awards, which celebrate companies that show innovation, creativity and a sustained commitment to corporate responsibility, are presented across 13 categories including the Responsible Business of the Year 2014.

    A Clarence House spokeswoman said: "For more than 30 years, The Prince of Wales has believed that being a responsible business goes far beyond the financial bottom line.

    "Through his charity, Business in the Community (BITC), established in 1982, His Royal Highness seeks to help businesses recognise their wider role in society and how they can help to tackle some of our most pressing social and environmental issues."
