Hardwell’s United We Are Foundation exceeds donation expectations for Mumbai charity concert
In what was arguably the biggest charity event by an EDM artist, Hardwell and his United We Are Foundation shattered all initial goals of aiming to help 3000 underprivileged children. Exceeding expectations by a staggering 17,000 children, the foundation was able to generate money enough to educate over 20,000 kids.
The money raised from the Mumbai show, that saw over 125,000 fans pre-register to secure a free place on Hardwell’s personal guest list, is to be used for funding and educational tools for the slum kids of Mumbai. Not only did the event help gather 5 figure sums, but also played a vital role in creating much-needed visibility and awareness around the cause of youth education in India.
All the proceeds from the concert will be put back into the charity project with Magicbus, and will further be used to create a drastic change towards the education of children in India. Ernst & Young, one of the world’s ‘Big Four’ accounting firms, will also audit the event.
