Sue Scheff: We Are The World - 2010

As the 2010 Winter Olympics open, the release of We Are The World, twenty-five years later is launched. This time it is for the victims of Haiti.

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.


Watch this inspiring new video. Michael Jackson is joined by his sister Janet in a remarkable duet that only today's technology could bring us. Donate and give what you can today. Teach your children to donate, be an example for them.
