Our mission is to build a multi-year global social action campaign to galvanize unprecedented investment to empower women and girls worldwide. Women’s Day Live will use the power of media, celebrity and technology each year on International Women’s Day to build a sustainable fund-raising platform that keeps giving back to the future.

The "Heart in Action" Global Humanitarian campaign will bring the heartbeat of the world together for the most significant Global Humanitarian Campaign in modern history. It is about people helping people during this severe humanitarian crisis. Never have alternative sources of funding been more critical for relief in the short term.

Join us for a unifying day for humanity. Millions of Global Citizens will stand united, connected and willing to put their heart in action because they care. What will you do?

THE WORLD IS A GLOBAL VILLAGE
Non-Profits Face an Unprecedented Challenge

Globe Spanning Transformative Philanthropy

The Benefit Concert  will raise funds for charities on the front lines of grassroots global women’s empowerment.

Women’s Day Live will help support and strength the major Women’s Grassroots Funds who are devoted to advancing gender equity.   The beneficiaries featured on the broadcast will be 6 Funds such as the Global Fund for Women, the MATCH International Women’s Fund, The Canadian Women’s Foundation, The Women’s Funding Network, The African Women’s Development Fund, AWDF, and U.N. Women. Finals to be determined. The Stand up to Cancer Benefit used this model to great success.  The Online platform and 24 hour Telethon will feature more of the world’s leading women and girl’s funds.

A Steering Committee featuring the CEO’S of the major Women’s Grassroots Foundations in the world  will help disseminate the funds raised and supervise implementation and impact. 

WOMEN’S DAY LIVE - BUILD A GLOBAL CHARITABLE PLATFORM FOR SUSTAINABLE FUND-RAISING

Countries or Charities that decide to do their own Women’s Day Live benefit concert and link up to our live event can benefit country specific funds. The Times Group in India is poised to produce the stage in Mumbai. In India, Tata Trusts offered to disburse funds raised, which will support the Girl Child Initiative. In Brazil TV Globo said they could do a concert on Copacabana Beach to benefit Viva Rio, a leading NGO in Brazil. The 1st Lady of Rwanda, offered to do same for her Imbuto Foundation, given International Women’s Day is a national holiday in Rwanda.

WOMEN RAISING BILLIONS. LET’S MAKE PHILANTHROPIC HISTORY.

Transformational change is possible and it is coming from Canada. Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy committed $150 million to women’s funds in the grassroots, putting power into the hands of women for the first time where it can have the greatest impact. With this act, Canada has stepped up, positioning itself as the gender equality leader on the world stage. This is historic. It’s never been done before. This is a game-changer.

The MATCH International Women’s Fund and the Nobel Women’s Initiative are launching the Canadian Feminist Action Lab with the aim of bringing a bold and more impactful way to deliver international aid to women’s grass-roots organizations where it can best support real solutions. We will support their expansion and implementation.

GLOBAL CALL TO ACTION TO WORLD LEADERS AT THE G7 TO MOBILIZE RESOURCES AND IMPACT POLICY

Canada is hosting the G7 in June 2018. We have a historic opportunity to invite leaders around the world to also put women and girls at the HEART of their International Development Agenda. By working together we can claim that power.

A Word Bank Senior Gender Analyst said "that they are very inspired by this exciting and bold initiative which would help them enormously in getting Finance Ministers of member world nations to implement promises and funds for gender related issues. He clearly stated that If we work together from the grassroots up, and they work from the top down, we will see change happen." This powerful base for global advocacy will influence key stakeholders to accelerate investment in women’s social, economic and political participation.

WHY WE ARE NEEDED?

Less than 7% of all philanthropic dollars fund programs specifically for women and girls. Women in the grassroots receive less than 2% of funding. Although education, gender inequality, poverty, violence against women, access to health care, water, technology and equal opportunity have emerged as pressing global issues, funding to tackle them is evidently vastly inadequate.

The Heart in Action campaign will launch on International Women’s Day to trigger unprecedented investment in women’s and girls’ funds globally, and inspire the biggest “give back” day on International Women’s Day. We will take social networking and local activism to a new level.

A NEW APPROACH TO GLOBAL PHILANTHROPY

Our goal is to create the world’s biggest online Shopping Day of the Year on International Women’s Day by galvanizing global brands to support the biggest “Giving Day” in history. Ali Baba did it with Singles Day in China, making one billion the first year, and 14 billion last year.

 
   
  • Platform to run multiple campaigns, track progress
  • Searchable directories for sign-ups and to lead events
  • Live 24-hour celebrity telethon—web, broadcast, social media, mobile 
  • Lead NGO Partners will be featured and promoted during telethon
Philanthropy is a shared responsibility and each of us should have a chance to give and to receive.
Who is responsible for this change? You are. I am. We are voters. We make 87 per cent of the purchasing decisions. We have the power of our purse to make sure the companies we buy from treat their employees fairly.
To realize this vision we’ll have to step it up – step up our commitment to finishing this, the great unfinished business of the 21st century.

Our approach is one more of social responsibility and social change philanthropy vs. ‘cause marketing’ as we aim to build long-term commitment that serves as a sustainable program model that can be evaluated and improved over time.
