The United Nations, humanitarian aid organizations and musician Beyonce launched a video to begin a global campaign to shine a spotlight on humanitarian work and encourage people around the world to get involved by doing something good for others.
Pop singer and songwriter Diane Warren will also donate a video of "I Was Here" that will be filmed in the U.N. General Assembly Hall in New York in front of a live audience. The video will premiere August 19 on World Humanitarian Day and the U.N. hopes it will help the campaign reach one billion people.
A news release said the campaign website launched on Thursday (August 2) and allows people to share individual acts of compassion. Beyonce said in the statement that World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity to work together.
