There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one.
How it Works
All monetary donations are processed through Braintree for a safe, easy, and secure method of donation. Our goal is to maximize the portion of every dollar that can go to make a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.
DOWNLOAD TO DO YOUR PART:
The world premiere of ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’ will air during NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics this Friday, February 12th. Immediately following the premiere, click the Buy The Song on iTunes here to purchase the 25th Anniversary version of the song or accompanying video ‘We Are The World 25 for Haiti’. It’s not a donation, but proceeds of each download go to the Foundation to help those in need. The artists have agreed to forego payment, so the Foundation can receive a greater share of the proceeds. iTunes has even waived its share of the proceeds for downloads for the first months of the Foundation’s campaign.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Donations are directed to We Are The World Foundation, a non-profit organization. The funds will be directed to worthwhile charities, hand-selected by the board of directors, which include Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie.
The We Are The World Foundation does not receive nor will it accept donations from residents of the states of Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.
The We Are the World Foundation was formed in August 2010, as a nonprofit public benefit corporation at the request of its founders, Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones.
The We Are the World Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as being tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the US tax code.
