Pandora and brand Muse Halima Aden unite in support of UNICEF, as the Marley family reimagine iconic anthem One Love for global fundraising appeal.

 

July 16, 2020:   Model and activist Halima Aden has come together with Pandora in support of UNICEF’s One Love initiative, to reimagine a world fit for all children. With the goal of preventing the COVID-19 pandemic becoming a lasting crisis for the world’s most vulnerable children, Pandora will match every dollar donated through One Love up to the value of US$1 mil-lion.

Members of the Marley family are re-recording the late Bob Marley’s iconic anthem One Love in support of UNICEF. Tuff Gong International and Amplified Music will release a new version of the seminal song on 17 July with all proceeds from the song and related activi-ties directly supporting UNICEF’s Reimagine campaign.

Originally recorded in 1977 by Bob Marley and the Wailers, One Love/People Get Ready is an iconic song for millions across the globe with its everlasting message to come together as one. The reimagined version of the song will be a true global anthem for 2020 featuring members of the Marley family, established mu-sicians from all corners of the globe and artists from conflict zones around the world.

“Over forty years ago, my father wrote One Love about unity, peace and universal love during a time when there was much trouble in the world. Even in a time when we aren’t able to get together, his message remains true today, we can get through this global crisis if
 

we come together through one love and one heart” said Cedella Marley.

As an advocate for global change, model and activist Halima Aden is raising her voice for the One Love initiative, encouraging the public to support and engage with donating functions across social media. With the first US$1M donated by supporters across the world doubled by Pandora, the proceeds will help UNICEF provide necessary equipment and essential support to vulnerable children and young people.

“As a Pandora Muse, I am so excited that Pandora supports the efforts of an organiza-tion that is so personal to me, UNICEF. As a UNICEF Ambassador, who was once on the receiving end of the services they provide to children around the world whilst growing up in a refugee camp, I know how detrimental the impact of COVID-19 will be if it hits refugee camps,” said Halima Aden. “The loss will be unbearable. In camps, there is no such thing as social distancing. UNICEF needs our help today more than ever and I’m so grateful to my Pandora family, as well as the Marley family, for coming together for this important initiative.”

Stephen Fairchild, Chief Product Officer Pandora, comments, “Across the world, we need to stand together in these difficult times, not forgetting those who need it most. By coming together with Halima Aden and the Marley family in support of UNICEF, we can
 

contribute together towards ensuring that the post-pandemic world is fairer and more equal for every child.”

Throughout the month of July, Pandora and UNICEF will drive awareness by engaging with Pandora fans and influencers, raising funds in support of the One Love initiative. This includes a “swipe-up” donation matching func-tion, an AR Instagram filter where each interac-tion results in a UNICEF donation and matching of all funds raised through activations on TikTok supporting the song launch.

Pandora’s partnership with UNICEF is a global call to action in response to a UNICEF estimate that, without urgent action, COVID-19 could cause an additional 6,000 children to die from preventable causes every day over the next six months. The collabora-tion on One Love is an extension of Pandora’s ongoing partnership with UNICEF that aims to support young voices around the world.
