Music Aid has supported children in need since it was launched in 1998. But no organization in the world does more for children globally than UNICEF – The United Nations International Children´s Emergency Fund.

UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives. It works tirelessly to defend their rights, and works to help them fulfill their potential from early childhood through adolescence. We ask all musicians and industry professionals, especially those working on benefit events and benefit music releases, to consider UNICEF as their worthy cause. Visit the official United Nation website here to discover more about UNICEF´s work. There is a large amount of information there to help you and guide you, and also a direct UNICEF donate button on their website. 

We support all musicians and businesses that directly raise funds for, or promote, UNICEF – The United Nations International Children´s Emergency Fund. If you release a benefit track or album, stage a benefit event, donate income from live streams to UNICEF or sell merchandise to directly benefit UNICEF, we freely provide support, expertise, promotion and resources.


UNICEF is a recommended beneficiary of World Concert Day. If you are involved with that event as an artist, producer or organizer you may wish to consider UNICEF as your worthy cause. If you select UNICEF as your cause we advise you to encourage viewers and fans to donate to UNICEF directly using their approved official social media charity donate buttons. World Concert Day takes place annually on 26th April. Visit the World Concert Day website here for details.
