The fourth annual Go Go Gala will benefit the Go Campaign, an organization dedicated to empowering orphans and vulnerable children throughout the world to secure a better future. The Go Campaign is a youth-driven nonprofit that cuts out the red tape and provides a direct connection to deserving grass-roots organizations serving children in need.
This year, Ewan will join the Go Campaign in honoring Chris Mburu. Chris grew up in Kenya having his $15 a month school fees sponsored by a schoolteacher in Sweden – a Holocaust survivor who felt it was important to give back. She had no idea how her small act of paying it forward would change the life of this boy she had never met. Chris not only excelled in school, but upon graduating from Harvard Law, Chris started a foundation in the name of his benefactor, continuing this chain of paying it forward in a remarkable way. Chris, now a United Nations advocate for human rights, is the subject of the HBO Emmy-nominated documentary A Small Act.
The event will take place at The London Hotel in West Hollywood on November 10. For more information, click here.
