For almost a decade, Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am has used the Thursday before the Grammys to raise awareness and funds for charitable causes. This year’s benefit concert will include performances by will.i.am and other chart-topping guests from all genres of music.
will.i.am launched his i.am.angel foundation in 2009 around the idea of providing assistance to needy students wanting to attend college through a program entitled i.am scholarship Fund. In 2012, in response to individuals, corporations, and funders expressing interest in supporting similar charitable activities, will.i.am created “i.am.angel foundation”, which is seeking public charity status with the appropriate taxing authorities. The foundation will be striving to trans4m lives through education, inspiration and opportunity, including by providing funding for other charitable activities, such as i.am.College Track, i.am.scholarship, i.am.STEAM and i.am.home Fund.
The TRANS4M conference is an annual event that seeks out BIG, CHRONIC PROBLEMS and looks to solve them with new thinking and diverse approaches to TRANS4M and sustain communities.
The event will take place on 2.7.13. To sign up for ticket and venue info as it is released, click here.
