WE ARE IN THE CRISIS OF THE CENTURY

THE NEED FOR HUMANITARIAN AID WORLDWIDE IS SEVERE AND TRAGIC. 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is a decisive turning point in world history. We are in the midst of an unprecedented Global Hunger Crisis. The future of humanity is in our hands.

I am calling on your visionary leadership with the greatest urgency to help our suffering human family. We have an Emmy-Award Wining team poised to produce the Women’s Day Live Global Multi-Platform Benefit Concert for an epic International Women’s Day Music Festival to help feed hungry children and their families.

Imagine the excitement! A live global mega-shed entertainment extravaganza! Music’s biggest International Stars using the power of music to bring the heartbeat of the world together in a global campfire to show we care and to share our common humanity, something we desperately need now.

The legendary Louis J. Horvitz will direct. (Oscars, Grammys, Live Aid). WDL Patron, Archbishop Desmond Tutu of blessed memory said let us make this “humanity’s finest hour”.

This is LIVE AID WOMEN. Global Engagement. Global Connectivity. We invite the global music industry players and media platforms, the worldwide communications industry, corporate and world leaders to galvanize a united global effort to combat hunger which is sweeping the world with catastrophic impact.

Help save the future for the world’s women and children or there will be a tragic set back of generations for Women and children. We cannot let this happen. Not on our watch. We must call on G20 World Leaders put women and children at the heart and center of global economic recovery efforts. Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron made a historic investment in women in 2018 and 2019, vowing to invest International Development Aid in Women’s Grassroots Funds where it has the greatest impact. This is a historic moment to implement 21stcentury solutions and help mobilize a global movement to make poverty history by empowering women.

This is a moon-shot moment for humanity to galvanize a bold Global Women’s Economic Empowerment plan to put the power of resources into women’s hands. The world knows women are the most potent force for global economic growth. It’s time to keep promises to women. Together we can launch the Women Aid International Pledge Fund, a robust Micro-Finance fund to support Women Entrepreneurs in America and worldwide. This would be modeled on Grameen America, which has been highly successful given the visionary leadership of Dr. Yunus and Andrea Jung. We stand poised at an absolutely revolutionary moment, with a transformational platform.

 

Civilization’s Great Shame. Where is our Humanity?

We need the world’s powerful economic players at the table now. To make a serious commitment to invest in the world’s women, girls and children. As Gandhi said “Poverty is the worst form of violence.” Women and girls are the poorest people on the earth. We can no longer accept this. It is intolerable. We can no longer look away. Where is it written that it is acceptable for society to put so little value on our greatest human resource?  It’s time to do the right by the world’s women and children.

It’s time for systemic change. It’s time to act. It’s time to mean it.

International Women’s Day is celebrated in 150 countries on March 8th, every year. The Heart in Action Global Humanitarian Campaign and Biggest Give Back Day Movement will continue through Mother’s Day to World Girls Day to launch the International Girls Day Music Festival on October 11th. We will build a global media platform to create a sustainable source of funding, which will help align women’s voice, power, and leadership to mobilize national and global advocacy.  We can do this.

Live Aid was a 16-hour musical events that proved the power of music to bring people together to act for a greater cause. It was one of the biggest and most successful charity events in the world. It happened in weeks. It has 40 Simultaneous Telethons around the world.

I have given my heart and soul to this mission. I’ve been all in since 2010 coming close 4 or five times. I had prophesied this Global Hunger crisis, the rise of a new fascism, this assault on women’s freedom, and on democracy. I dedicated my life to be ready to respond. To not stand up for the future of democracy and step up now for the world’s women and children would be too heartbreaking.

I said I could never give up on this mission because the stakes are too high. This is a cause worth dying for. I decided educated and empowered women were the answer to many of the critical issues facing humanity. I grew up in an oppressive communist regime. Only people who have experienced what it is like not to have freedom and live with a daily dose of corrosive fear know how precious it is. This fight for freedom and democracy has cost me no less than everything.

I wondered if I was a megalomaniac or a fool. I decided I am both. I have gone the distance. Will you help realize this bold mission? I have answered the call. Will you join me?

The future of our children and our grandchildren in in our hands. The question is what are we prepared to do?

Lili Fournier and her quote

"Each of us has the power and strength to overcome whatever challenges we face to become powerful social change agents. These times are calling for us to take a stand and find out what we are made of. We have to call on our fierce love for children, and not just our children. The future is in our hands. Let’s turn action into impact.""

- Lili FOURNIER, Women's Day Live Founder

We can produce a spectacular global event that will make a significant impact for the future benefit of humanity. Together we can lead a digital revolution in innovation with a powerful vision of the impossible future made possible.

Working together is the only great hope if we are to meet this great challenge at this defining and pivotal moment in world history.

We cannot let this momentous opportunity pass us by.

With warmest regard,

Lili Fournier.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT.
PUT YOUR HEART IN ACTION.
