ABOUT THE WE ARE THE WORLD FOUNDATION

Join our community. Be part of the solution. We Are the World.
The world premiere of ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’ will air during NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics this Friday, February 12, at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT.
The recording of ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’ embodies the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Through the contributions of the new voices to this rendition of ‘We Are The World,’ and with the help of our partners, the We Are The World Foundation will be committed to transparency and will help further the spirit of activism that was at the heart of the original song and movement.
We are developing mechanisms to permit our donors and members of the community to monitor the funds raised, the expenses paid, and the charitable grants funded by the We Are The World Foundation, a newly created not-for-profit organization founded by Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie who have invited Wyclef Jean, Paul Haggis, Randy Phillips, Peter Tortorici and Ambassador Luis Moreno of the Inter-American Development Bank to join them on the board. The Foundation is dedicated to raising money and to making grants to charitable organizations with meaningful and efficient relief and development programs that are responding to the continuing crisis in Haiti.


DONATE

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one.


HOW IT WORKS

All monetary donations are processed through Google Checkout for a safe, easy, and secure method of donation. Our goal is to maximize the portion of every dollar that can go to make a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti. Google Checkout is waiving all processing fees on donations.


DOWNLOAD TO DO YOUR PART:

The world premiere of ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’ will air during NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics this Friday, February 12th. Immediately following the premiere, click the Buy The Song on iTunes here to purchase the 25th Anniversary version of the song or accompanying video ‘We Are The World 25 for Haiti’. It’s not a donation, but proceeds of each download go to the Foundation to help those in need. The artists have agreed to forego payment, so the Foundation can receive a greater share of the proceeds. iTunes has even waived its share of the proceeds for downloads for the first months of the Foundation’s campaign.


WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

Donations are directed to We Are The World Foundation, a non-profit organization. The funds will be directed to worthwhile charities, hand-selected by the board of directors, which include Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie.

The We Are the World Foundation was formed on February 5, 2010, as a nonprofit public benefit corporation at the request of its founders, Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones. The Foundation is applying to the IRS for recognition of tax-exempt status, and our legal counsel is confident that our application will be approved. When the IRS recognizes our tax-exempt status, that recognition will be retroactive to the date the Foundation was formed.


THE SONG
THE STORY, THE VOICES, THE MESSAGE.

Recorded on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios) the new version, in which Jones and Richie serve as executive producers and producers, was created in collaboration with executive producers Wyclef Jean, Randy Phillips and Peter Tortorici; producers Humberto Gattica and RedOne; co-producers Rickey Minor, Mervyn Warren and Patti Austin; and project producers John Rubey and Adam Fell to benefit the Haitian earthquake relief efforts and the rebuilding of Haiti.
Academy Award-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), whose own personal efforts as well as those of Artists for Peace and Justice have already saved countless lives in Haiti, filmed the private recording session to create the accompanying video and “behind-the-scenes” production, and serves as Film Director and as an Executive Producer with Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips and Tortorici.

    Quincy said, “25 years ago, the entertainment industry showed the power of community to help our fellow man when we recorded ‘We Are The World’ to bring relief to those suffering from famine in Ethiopia. And while the need to assistant Africa continues, today the country of Haiti is suffering immeasurably from the destruction due to the recent earthquake and is in immediate need of relief that will last long after the television cameras have left. As artists, we have joined together on this 25th anniversary and in the spirit of ‘We Are The World’ to help meet that need.”
    “What an unbelievable group of people who have come together to give their voices, for a cause to start the healing of a people who have experienced a devastation of such magnitude,” said Richie. “We believe ‘We Are The World – 25 for Haiti’ can be the start of the healing process.”
    “I’m thrilled Quincy, Lionel and Randy invited me to be a part of something so wonderful in which we are standing side by side with Haitian artists and community to help them rebuild their broken nation,” stated Paul Haggis.
    “On January 12th, the people of Haiti were faced with a tragedy unlike anything the country has ever experienced,” said Wyclef Jean, songwriter and cofounder of the We Are The World Foundation. “Today, I am proud to be joined by so many members of the artistic community that want to support the region and have donated their time and talents to providing an effective way for the global community to get involved with helping the Haitian population.”

    “We Are the World” is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and co-produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album We Are the World. Honored numerous times — including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and a People’s Choice Award — the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of “We Are the World”, which was eventually named the biggest-selling single of all time.
    In the years that have followed, USA for Africa has raised and distributed more than $63 million in revenue from the sales of more than 7 million units of the album, single and cassettes, plus nearly 2 million digital sales and related merchandise. Just over half the total was spent on emergency relief (food, medicine, and refugee services) and the balance was used to support more than 500 different relief, rehabilitation and development projects in 18 different countries in sub-Saharan Africa.


    OUR EFFORTS
    DONATE: MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE


    Visit this page often to see the good work YOUR dollars fund. A team of 15 Haitian film students are charged with following the work of the Foundation. Videos telling the story of where the money goes and who it helps will be posted here for all to view.
    The We Are the World Foundation is committed to transparency. We are developing mechanisms to permit our donors and members of the community to monitor the funds raised, the expenses paid, and the charitable grants funded. Our goal is to maximize the portion of every dollar that can go to make a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.
    The Foundation is dedicated to raising money for charitable purposes and to making grants to charitable organizations with meaningful and efficient relief and development programs that are responding to the continuing crisis in Haiti. We are identifying charities whose relief programs best fit the Foundation’s vision of marshaling the support of the community for the benefit of the victims of disaster and poverty. We will begin soon to make grants and will start to see the funds put to work in charitable and relief efforts. Until then, we’ll hold and guard the funds dedicated to this important work.

    WOW!!!!  I LOVE IT !!!

    They did awesome.  I was so scared that it wasn't going to feel inspiring or something and just another celeb hype, or maybe that Michael would be forgotten in some way that he had a part in the original.  I'm happy, happy that he was in this, so sooo happy.  My favourite part of course but I got a little choked up hearing his voice, missing him still.  

    I love Jennifer Hudson's voice and Wyclef Jean was full of emotion...
    and Lil' Wayne.... "just you and ME" was cute !  They were all great though.  Love the clips of the Haitian children and the little boy in blue and red dancing.. too cute !  

    I pray that everyone continues to support Haiti and they are not forgotten months, years from now.    

    Thanks Souza for posting.

    In the section, ARTISTS FOR HAITI, it leaves off Michael and Janet. They were artists even if they weren't there in person. Right?

    I think that the list of 70 includes those that were there for the recording in person.
    Quincy mentioned that there were 70 and a total of 88 people involved with the production.
    7 + 0 = 7 (of course) 8 + 8 + 16...1 + 6 = 7. Don't know what of the other 7. Maybe the less obvious 7 suggests Michael.

    meanwhile, this project is wonderful & just as inspiring as 25 years ago; if not more.
    please pray for Haiti and do what you can to help the children of Haiti, all her people and this spiritual land.

    We need to give Michael a living legacy of true honor.
    "Stand-up, stand-up" to clear his name.
    Isn\'t this the least we can do for him ?

    Tarryl on the Grammys is very different from the one at the Dynasty program. Also it seems odd that he exits on the reality show and allows us to just see a snippet of him - while the other two remain to talk about Michael.

    Also what is with Taj's twitter background - Michael Jackson - not now - never.jpg (or something like that)

    O my god this version of we are the world gave me goosebumps and it brought such warmness to my heart. I have already donated to haiti through text message a while ago and was glad I got to do my part. We will continue to spread love and help to Haiti and I will always hold those people close to my heart. I just have to say I love the old and the new version of we are the world, it's a trully amazing song.

    Consciousness expresses itself through creation.
    Dancers come and go in a twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on.
    I\'ve felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists.
    I become the stars and the moon.
    The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy.

      “We Are the World” is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and co-produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album We Are the World. Honored numerous times — including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and a People’s Choice Award — the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of “We Are the World”, which was eventually named the biggest-selling single of all time.
      In the years that have followed, USA for Africa has raised and distributed more than $63 million in revenue from the sales of more than 7 million units of the album, single and cassettes, plus nearly 2 million digital sales and related merchandise. Just over half the total was spent on emergency relief (food, medicine, and refugee services) and the balance was used to support more than 500 different relief, rehabilitation and development projects in 18 different countries in sub-Saharan Africa.


      OUR EFFORTS
      DONATE: MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE


      Visit this page often to see the good work YOUR dollars fund. A team of 15 Haitian film students are charged with following the work of the Foundation. Videos telling the story of where the money goes and who it helps will be posted here for all to view.
      The We Are the World Foundation is committed to transparency. We are developing mechanisms to permit our donors and members of the community to monitor the funds raised, the expenses paid, and the charitable grants funded. Our goal is to maximize the portion of every dollar that can go to make a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.
      The Foundation is dedicated to raising money for charitable purposes and to making grants to charitable organizations with meaningful and efficient relief and development programs that are responding to the continuing crisis in Haiti. We are identifying charities whose relief programs best fit the Foundation’s vision of marshaling the support of the community for the benefit of the victims of disaster and poverty. We will begin soon to make grants and will start to see the funds put to work in charitable and relief efforts. Until then, we’ll hold and guard the funds dedicated to this important work.

      I am a bit wary of this due to these facts:

       MJs "HEAL THE WORLD" foundation - WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO IT??

      See website:  http://www.healtheworld.us/members/htwf

      Quote from their site:  For now, HTWF will NOT be putting donation funds toward any of our OWN initiatives, for hunger, homelessness. etc., but rather fortifying the charity and supporting other established charities who do address these critical issues of our day.



      Instead all the profits from the Haiti song is to go to a NEW charity foundation called "WE ARE THE WORLD"

      "We Are The World Foundation, a newly created not-for-profit
      organization made up of board members Quincy Jones, Lionel Richie,
      Wyclef Jean, Paul Haggis, Randy Phillips and Ambassador Louis Moreno of
      the Inter-American Development Bank. "
