Robert Pattinson, Lily Collins, Haim and More Set For GO Campaign Virtual Fundraiser

GO Campaign — a nonprofit focused on serving orphans and vulnerable children around the world — is going for a virtual fundraiser for its 14th annual gala on Oct. 24.

Hosted by Robert Pattinson, Lily Collins and Ewan McGregor, the free online event will feature musical performances from Haim, Katharine McPhee and David Foster, Judith Hill, McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as well as McGregor’s daughter, Esther McGregor and her band French Thyme. All money raised will support GO Campaign’s continued efforts for global COVID-19 relief and racial equality in the United States.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney are also slated to appear, along with other special guests. The program will also include special prizes, raffle items and, for VIP attendees, treats from sponsors Beachbody Foundation, OXIGEN Water and more.

“I’m grateful that we can still come together virtually and now globally to help raise funds for GO Campaign and its mission to support families and children worldwide,” said Pattinson in a statement. Added Collins: “We have the power and platform to make really impactful changes to so many people’s lives. I love supporting the GO Campaign and am excited about helping children and families in all these communities.”

McGregor said the opportunity to give back on behalf of GO serves as a reminder that “we are all a part of a bigger” global family. “In this time when we are restricted in our travel, it’s fantastic that GO Campaign still allows us to make a meaningful impact around the world,” he added.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, GO Campaign has granted more than $176,000 in emergency relief to grassroots organizations, provided 1,085,760 meals and 46,155 masks to children and vulnerable communities, helped 3,899 families with groceries and household supplies and other efforts.

“When the world was hit with the COVID crisis, and again when the US was in crisis over racial inequality, GO had the unique advantage of being able to meet the needs of communities immediately. With our network of trusted Local Heroes, we’re not held back by political differences or bureaucracy, and we’re able to help impoverished and struggling families right now,” said Scott Fifer, CEO and founder.
