As COVID-19 has spread around the world, so has solidarity among people everywhere – with acts of kindness helping those in need and celebrating the frontline heroes. Arts Help proudly partnered with the United Nations SDG Action Campaign to produce original content for the Global Day of Solidarity on May 22, 2020.
In alignment with #GlobalGoals, Global Day of Solidarity celebrates acts of kindness and the sacrifices of frontline workers around the world. Danila Kozlovsky, actor and director, opened with words of strength, emphasizing a new appreciation for simple things and social interaction. His message highlighted the essential values of the #StrongerTogether movement: solidarity, hope, and togetherness.
Dr. Bassem Youssef, Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, and CEO of the Economic Club of Canada Rhiannon Rosalind also sent personal messages, contributing their own words of unity to the cause. Sophie Brussaux, Artistic Director of Arts Help, concluded the video with the campaign's central message: “Because we are #StrongerTogether.”
