…all to support one cause: children.
Samsung Hope for Children works directly with celebrities, athletes and business partners in order to help raise awareness of the company’s charitable giving initiatives. These partnerships have enabled Samsung and their business partners to raise over $25 million for over 300 schools, non-profits and charities throughout the United States. Samsung Hope for Children focuses on organizations which are dedicated to helping children enjoy life, learn and appreciate the environment.
Funds raised from the event went directly to the charities supported by the Samsung Hope for Children fund including Bill Clinton’s “The William J. Clinton Foundation” and Jennifer Lopez’s “The Maribel Foundation.”
During the event, Caroline Manzo tweeted: “Watching @Johnlegend perform @samsungs hope 4 children gala.
