Brigham Young University’s UNICEF club will host a “Believe in Zero” benefit concert and dance party to raise money for underprivileged children throughout the world, Saturday, Dec. 6 from 7 to 11 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Ballroom.
The evening will feature performances by Imagine Dragons, Sharks Speed and Kid You Nauts. Tickets are $6 and can be purchased at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk or at the door.
According to UNICEF, 25,000 children die every day from preventable causes. Access to clean water, basic medical care and mosquito bed netting could make a significant difference for these children. UNICEF’s goal is to reduce the number of daily casualties from 25,000 to zero.
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF, in partnership with the Association of College Unions International and The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF, has issued a fund-raising challenge on college campuses across America, encouraging students to raise awareness and funds for children around the world who die from preventable diseases. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF up to $150,000.
