Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2016
The Charity Network today announced a new partnership with the United Nations Foundation to showcase the breadth of UN Foundation campaigns and initiatives that meet urgent needs across the globe, from fighting climate change, disease, inequality, and extreme poverty, to empowering girls and women. Through the partnership, the Charity Network will utilize two of its top digital fundraising platforms – Charitybuzz and Chideo – to harness the power of celebrity, technology, and media to raise awareness and funds for the UN Foundation, a public charity that connects people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems and advance the Sustainable Development Goals.
The campaign will feature an array of online auctions on Charitybuzz and unique cause-related content will be distributed across Chideo. From now through the campaign’s end on November 15, 2016, donors will have the opportunity to win one-of-a-kind experiences that support 18 different UN Foundation initiatives. Some of the UN Foundation initiatives that will benefit from the Charitybuzz auctions include but are not limited to: Nothing But Nets, the world’s largest, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria; Girl Up, an initiative that promotes health, safety, education, and leadership of girls in developing countries; and the Global Entrepreneurs Council(GEC), a strategic advisory council designed to bring together successful, high-profile, entrepreneurs and thought leaders who are committed to finding innovative solutions to global problems. Some of the experiences available on Charitybuzz in support of the UN Foundation campaign include:
