We’ll take you on the ground to explore the transformative impact of your support in places like Ethiopia and Kenya. Hear from our honoree - Alison Taylor of Archer Daniels Midland - and experience the sights, sounds and beauty of the communities we partner with. We hope you’ll stand with us through this hardship and help us reach our
$2M year-end goal so we can continue to serve the most vulnerable people around the world - our strength lies in unity and in our common humanity

We’ve combined four of our signature events:

the Seeds of Hope Annual Award Dinner,

Women of Concer Awards Luncheon,

Thanks for Giving Gala and Winter Ball

to bring together a diverse group of 2,000+ dedicated supporters for a powerful program with lively entertainment to raise the critical funds needed to close
the gap and address the increasing hunger crisis made more dire due the COVID-19 pandemic. 50 years ago, Concern was founded to address famine in Africa. 20 years ago, we helped pioneer a breakthrough in nutrition delivery that ushered in a steady decline in global starvation rates for the first time in history. Now, this progress is in danger of being reversed because of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Please stand with us through this hardship and help us reach our $2M goal so we can continue to serve the most vulnerable people around the world. Our strength lies in unity and in our common humanity.

TOGETHER WE CAN STILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, CONCERN WILL HOST ITS FIRST-EVER GLOBAL GALA
Hosted by: BRIAN D’ARCY JAMES with

Special Guests Judy Collins, Toni Collette and Irish Dancer Morgan Bullock



COVID-19 is not just a health crisis but also an economic crisis for the world’s poorest communities. The consequences are projected to be even more devastating with higher unemployment levels, decreased resources as well as rising hunger levels. These ripple effects threaten to reverse decades of the hard-fought
gains we’ve made in eliminating extreme poverty. We are up against the biggest challenge we’ve ever seen, but we can’t let COVID-19 win!
This tumultuous year has forced us to cancel our in-person events that would have raised over $2 million in crucial funds that ensure our life-saving work reaches the millions of people we serve each year. With this in mind we’ve created a very special event, not only to support Concern but to take our supporters on a virtual journey around the globe -- to explore the transformative impact of your support in places like Ethiopia and Kenya. Hear from our honoree - Alison Taylor of Archer Daniels Midland - and experience the sights, sounds and beauty of the communities we partner with.
