George Harrison was guitarist for The Beatles.

He organized the first ever multi-artist benefit concert – The Concert For Bangladesh – in 1971.

A major supporter of peace charities, Harrison established the Material World Foundation to support a number of different charities.

The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF is a joint undertaking between the Harrison family and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to support UNICEF programs that provide lifesaving assistance to children, including health, education, nutrition and emergency relief. In the tradition established by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar, The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF continues to support UNICEF programs in Bangladesh while expanding its influence to include other countries where children are in need.

Harrison passed away in November, 2001, but has left a lasting legacy on the history of celebrity charity giving.
