SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (Salt Lake Tribune (blog)) - This month, celebrities and musicians are joining forces with UNICEF for the “Month of Giving” - - a large-scale social media campaign to help provide emergency relief for children in famine and drought-affected regions in Somalia and the Horn of Africa.

As part of the campaign, Selena Gomez will be showing a special video presentation during her upcoming concert at the Maverik Center.

Gomez joins a roster of musicians lending their voices for the children of Africa. Nas, Arcade Fire, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Lady Antebellum, Leon Russell, Elvis Costello, Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Go-Go’s, Brian Wilson, My Morning Jacket, Jackson Browne and many more are engaging with fans at their concerts, tweeting and posting content to their websites and Facebook pages. The “Month of Giving” coincides with the 40th anniversary of the legendary Concert for Bangladesh, the first major music benefit for a humanitarian cause.

Ways fans can join in the movement:

· Use the #4afriend hashtag to spread the word on social media.
· Text FRIEND to UNICEF (864233) to give $10 to the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF
· Download the Concert for Bangladesh album on iTunes (www.iTunes.com) or visit www.theconcertforbangladesh.com to donate and learn more

All proceeds will benefit the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF to immediately help the children in Africa.
