Organized by Global Citizen, "the world's largest movement of action-takers and impact-makers dedicated to ending extreme poverty by 2030," at the request of the UN and the World Health Organization, One World: Together at Home began, the Global Citizen website explains, as a series of online musical performances and Q&A sessions. The campaign and those involved encourage fans to stay home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, but also to educate themselves about the disease and learn about what's being done to help those affected.
One World: Together at Home is more of an awareness-raising event than a fundraiser; however, corporate partners' donations, the Global Citizen website reports, are going to the WHO's Solidarity Response Fund. The global organization has shipped more than 2 million pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies to 68 countries, and 1.5 million coronavirus tests to 120 countries.
