Overview

Self-reported by organization

The HOPE Campaign launched December 2006 and intially
worked to bring the crisis in Darfur, Sudan to the forefront of the
media by raising awareness through the Creative Class and developing
collaborative projects and funds to help educational and
social projects move forward in sustainability.

With the help of
contemporary artist Shepard Fairey and hundreds of participating HOPE Artists and groups, the HOPE Campaign has now raised awareness and funds
for important humanitarian and social issues to millions of people
across the world.

Through collaborations and contributions from the Creative
Class, the HOPE Campaign has highlighted ways people can learn about global issues and support educational workshops and programs across the globe or in their own backyard.

The
HOPE Campaign is expanding in the U.S. and abroad. After continued
growth in 2012, HOPE is enrolling new artists and partners to assist in
the form of talent, technology, products and funds for upcoming HOPE
Events. These contributions help fund all HOPE Projects which allow
creatives the ongoing opportunity to share their talents and time
through collaborations and workshops with identified educational
programs.

Join the HOPE Campaign and help artists and musicians support education projects around the world. www.hopecampaign.org
