One World Together At Home So Far Has Raised $US128M

By David Farrell

International advocacy organization Global Citizen, together with Lady Gaga, has announced US$127.9M in commitments to date in support of healthcare workers in the fight against the global pandemic. The pre-recorded segments spliced together for Sunday’s six-hour One World Together At Home special was live-streamed across 175 countries by 60 global broadcast networks and nine digital platforms.


Canada’s Michael Bublé, Celine Dion and Shawn Mendes were a part of the galaxy of musical talents from across the planet who used various online platforms to contribute to the extravaganza that doubled as a reason to give us a ‘smile’ during the pandemic, as too a fund-raiser for global and local orgs in the front line in the war on the virus that is attributable for over 165K deaths worldwide and 1,587 in Canada.
