One World Beat Charity Profile
One World Beat is a non-profit organization that unites musicians of all genres to unite and convey a message of hope through their music.
Bands from around the world perform gigs under the One World Beat banner and use their place in the spotlight to do more than just sing about changing the world - they actually do it. By raising funds and awareness for the One World Beat help projects they inspire people and music fans to step out of the shade and take action.
In only three, the One World Beat community has grown from a visionary idea to a network of people and artists around the world.
"The idea of giving musicians the possibility to be part of a humanitarian project in a direct way was a natural one to me," says Andy Aidan Treichler, founder of One World Beat. "After all, so much music is about changing the world, about making it better. I see One World Beat as a way to allow musicians like myself to do something more than just sing about making a difference. Now, we have an opportunity to actually do it."
Supported by the United Nations Education Consortium Organization (UNESCO), and artists such as Phil Collins, Mark King, The Cardigans, Westlife, Paula Abdul and hundreds more musicians, One World Beat has successfully staged the Global Music Festival 2003, 2004 and 2005.
The idea behind One World Beat is to unite musicians around the world for a good cause and thousands have supported the project. One World Beat 2003 generated benefits for nonprofits like United Planet, an Internet-based charity devoted to peace-building around the world through community and technology- based programs and intercultural education. Other local charities were able to raise funds for people hurt in bushfires in Australia, children in need in Lithuania, victims of violence in Alaska, youth education programs in the USA and Japan, for villagers in El Salvador to maintain their heritage, landslide survivors in Bolivia, and youth affected by HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.
