10 Charity Concerts You Might Haven’t Heard About

concert

Tragedies happen every now and then, but as sad as it is, there is always people who are willing to help in any way they can and artists are not the exception; they use the global attention that is upon them to create awareness, to ask for aid and to raise money for good causes.

People like to follow their idol’s example and they also participate in these charities and spread the voice. These are some of the most important charity concerts ever:

1985

We Are the World

We all have heard this single once (or more) in our lives, but most people do not know the purpose of it. This single was released to raise money to alleviate poverty in Africa and the U.S. Up to this date, it has raised over 100 million dollars in more than 30 years.

Farm Aid

These times were difficult ones for farmers, they were facing economic issues due to the high corporate rates. This concert raised 9 million dollars and raised awareness by making the Congress hear their concerns and helping farmers avoid foreclosure. Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp were the singers involved in this movement.

Live Aid

It is one of the biggest benefit concerts ever made. With two stages, one at the Wembley Stadium in London and the other at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, it raised over 245 million dollars to fight famine in Ethiopia. The concert had 162,000 fans in the stadiums and was streamed worldwide on TV with 1.5 billion spectators.

2001

The concert for New York

After the devastating 9/11, Paul McCartney gathered actors, athletes, and artists to honor and pay tribute to all those who died in the terrorist attack alongside with the family members of the victims. They raised over 30 million dollars.

America: A tribute to heroes

In this occasion, George Clooney ran a telethon recorded in Los Angeles, New York, and London with Tom Hanks and Stevie Wonder to raise funds to the families of fallen first responders. They raised over 140 million dollars.

2005

A concert of Hurricane Relief

After Hurricane Katrina, NBC gathered artists around the country in a televised benefit concert to gather funds for families and victims. It raised over 50 million dollars.

Shelter from the Storm: A concert for the Gulf Coast

After the concert for Hurricane Relief, celebrities got together in another televised benefit concert streamed in over 100 countries to gather funds to the American Red Cross and Salvation Army. This concert raised over 30 million dollars.

2010

Hope for Haiti now

After a magnitude 7.0 earthquake left most of the country in ruins, artists gathered once more to run a telethon to raise funds for aid and relief to Haiti. Names such as Beyoncé, George Clooney, Rihanna, Wyclef Jean, among others were part of the two-hour event in MTV. The telethon raised more than 61 million dollars.

2017

One Love Manchester

This concert took place after a bombing attack near an Arianna Grande’s concert in Manchester. After the attack she gathered huge artists like Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Coldplay and other to raise funds for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council. It was streamed alive and raised over 3 million dollars.

These are proof that in bad times if people stay together can help a lot more than doing it alone. Use your resources, spread your voice, support the cause and always be grateful for what you have.

6 Fundraising Events You Can Do on a Tight Budget

rolled-papers

Many people think that fundraising events need to be expensive, but with these 6 ideas, you will see that you do not need a lot of money for your donors to have a great time and to raise funds.

Candy in a jar

candy

This is a fun way of raising money. All you need is a clear jar and candies. Try to pick candies that everybody loves like M&M’s or Jellybeans. The fun part is that people have to guess how much candy is in the jar.

You can charge for people to be able to guess or ask for a donation, have in mind that people may give less than you thought or surprise you with more than you expected. Remember to count candies before the event.

Weight Loss-a-Thon

runner

This is a healthy and fitness choice for an event. Participants can sign up individually or in groups. The main object is to lose a certain amount of weight during the event.

People can set an amount of money for when they reach their target loss or set an amount per pound lost. You can find instructors or nutritionists to help you with the event, they will be the participants’ mentors.

Daily Indulge Drop

In this opportunity, you need to encourage people to quit something they do daily. For example, if they buy a chocolate every day, they would save the money they normally use to buy chocolate for a month and at the end donate it to your charity.

This way people can see how far money goes and also help others.

Dollars for dares

dollars

Nowadays this is a trend. Everybody heard about the “Ice Bucket Challenge” or any other dares in order to raise money for good causes. You need to establish a dare and an amount of money. When the amount is reached you need to do the dare. You can stream it or do it in a public event and raise even more money for your cause.

Flash Mob

dutch

This is a fun way to get people to donate and participate to help your cause. You need to get organized about what to do, pick a location, preferably public and get the choreographer for the mob.

To raise money, you can ask people for a fee to participate and ask them to spread the voice to keep adding donors. The more people participate, the more money you will raise, but remember it has to be a surprise.

50/50 Raffle

lottery-loose

The spin-off in this kind of raffles is that instead of giving all the money to the winner, the money raised goes 50% to the winner and 50% to your cause.

You need to have as many people as you can. Try to do discounts for groups and have many options to pay. In each ticket write the name and phone of the donor so you can contact them without any problem.

All of these are good options to raise money for tight budget events. You can use them to drive attention to your cause and to create awareness while having fun. You can even combine some of them in your event and have more things to do. There is always a way to help others, do not quit.

Thanks to today’s technology, it is easier to help others with whatever is in their possibilities. In fact, there are so many options and ways to do it that you can choose, from donating online to searching for events close to you where you can have an active participation in the process.

If your goal is to help others, you can participate in many social events. Here we will show you some of these events.

Oxfam’s Dressed by the Kids Day

Kids get to dress you up as foolish as they want and raise awareness on sustainable clothing and poverty.

Starve a Vampire. Donate Blood

Donate blood and feel like a cool vampire fighter in the process.

These events raise money either to create awareness regarding health issues or to fight against poverty. They are the best option to help people around the globe.

But, if you want to help those without a voice and protect animal welfare, these are the events for you:

Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale.Show off your delicious vegan recipes and raise awareness against animal cruelty at the same time.

Great Gorilla Run

Get to save Gorillas by dressing up as one and running through a marathon. Have fun while creating awareness against animal cruelty and raise funds for causes related to these objectives.

If you prefer protecting people, animals, the environment or all together, then you will want to try to actively participate in making a change in the world. The most important thing is that you actually start doing something. And little by little, there will be a lot of results.

England vs Slovakia – Betting Preview

  • When: 7:45PM, Monday, September 4th, 2017
  • Where: Wembley Stadium, London, England

England moved a step closer to qualification for next summers World Cup Finals with a 4-0 win against Malta on Friday night. The scoreline flatters England somewhat and the Three Lions were booed off by the travelling fans at half time after failing to score. Three late goals from Harry Kane, Ryan Bertrand and Danny Welbeck added some gloss to the scoreline on a night where England made hard work of breaking down a stubborn Maltese team.

Monday night sees England welcome second placed Slovakia to Wembley Stadium in a game that should provide a much sterner test of Southgate’s sides credentials. Slovakia overcame Slovenia 1-0 on Friday night thanks to a late goal from Adam Nemec and that result moved them four points clear of Scotland behind them. If England can win on Monday night they will move five points clear at the top of Group F, but if Slovakia manage to grab an away win, they would leapfrog England at the top of the group with just two games remaining.

Team News

Gareth Southgate surprised many people by keeping faith in under fire goalkeeper Joe Hart on Friday against Malta and that selection would suggest he still views the new West Ham United goalkeeper as his number one. Southgate is expected to name a largely unchanged team on Monday, with the only likely change being Marcus Rashford replacing Raheem Sterling. Rashford came on for Sterling at half time on Friday after a largely unimpressive showing from the Manchester City winger. Rashford impressed immediately though, continually beating his man down the left hand side and he has likely done enough to warrant a starting berth against Slovakia. Jordan Henderson captained the Three Lions on Friday, but Southgate said he would share the captaincy around so we may see Joe Hart or Gary Cahill take over the armband on Monday.

Prediction

England won the reverse fixture out in Slovakia 1-0 thanks to a 95th minute goal from Adam Lallana. Martin Skrtel was sent off just before the hour mark for Slovakia on that night, but England struggled to find a goal until almost the last kick of the game. Southgate will be confident that his side can keep Slovakia at bay and if the midfield is able to nullify the threat of star man Marek Hamsik, then you would expect England to pick up another victory here.

Betting Preview

England start this game as the favourites to pick up a win and are available at odds of 4/11 at 10Bet Review, whilst an away win for Slovakia is 7/1 and the draw is 15/4. I think England will edge this one, but it’ll be a tight game so Draw/England at 11/4 could be a good bet as England have struggled to make an early breakthrough in recent games, often relying on late goals. There was only one goal scored in the reverse fixture between these two sides and I think Under 2.5 goals at 17/20 looks like a sure thing here.

Goals Under 2.5 – 17/20
