Toni Collette, has joined the international humanitarian organization, Concern Worldwide, as its first official Global Ambassador.
I am deeply honored to join Concern as their first Global Ambassador,” says Ms. Collette. “I know I am becoming part of a global team of men and women committed to transforming care and empathy into real, direct and effective action that creates lasting change in the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
As a Global Ambassador, Ms. Collette will work to shine a light on the challenges facing those impacted by poverty, war, conflict, and natural disaster. In this role, Ms. Collette will travel to Concern’s program areas, which include 25 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Caribbean, to bring much-needed attention to the conditions of those living in extreme poverty and in emergency and conflict environments. “We’re so grateful that Toni has agreed to make Concern Worldwide her chosen cause because we know that she can have a transformative impact on our work,” says Dr. Joseph Cahalan, CEO of Concern Worldwide U.S., the organization’s affiliate headquartered in New York City. “Toni has a rare ability to translate concern into action, having helped us reach countless new friends and donors as part of our Concern Gifts program in the last two years. Now, as our ambassador, she can help us reach millions more and strengthen our effort to change the lives of the world’s poorest people.” In 2012, Ms. Collette lent her celebrity to Concern’s global campaign to fight malnutrition and hunger and later to a holiday appeal to make a difference to families across the world through gifts such as livestock, clean water, and health care. Together, the campaigns raised money that helped Concern fight poverty, hunger, and disease, and ultimately save lives.
