“One World Together at Home” concert to celebrate health care workers and WHO combating COVID-19, April 18, 8pm on major networks

By Eileen M. Samitz

While our community needs to shelter and place and practice social distancing, I am certain that I am not alone in wanting to help in some other way in the fight against COVID-19.  Thanks to a recent article in the Davisite, one way is to donate to any of our local charities which can be easily found via the webpage for the Yolo Community Foundation at their Covid-19 Initiative website at:

The other way is to help globally by donating to the World Health Organization (WHO) which is working so hard to unite the forces of all countries, to help combat COVID-19.  One thing that is certain, is that we will only win this war against COVID-19 if we work together with the many other nations battling this terrible disease, by cooperating and pooling our knowledge and make efforts to help each other.

While this event happen is not a telethon to raise funds, we can help WHO by making a donation to them on line via their “COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund” at: or via their Facebook page for this fund at:

So, a nationwide televised concert is happening today, Saturday April 18th for the “One World Together at Home” is to celebrate the healthcare workers and World Health Organization. This undoubtedly extends to thanking the many essential workers who are helping to support our communities working hard daily to provided our essential needs including food and supplies, during this COVID-19 crisis.

There are dozens of well-known musical artists and actors who are participating including Lady Gaga (who helped initiate the concert), the Rolling Stones, Paul McCarthy, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Usher, Taylor Swift, Alishia Keys, John Legend, LL Cool J, Andrea Bocelli and Keith Urban so a variety of music and personalities like Oprah Winfrey, Amy Poehler and Ellen DeGeneres. The show is being produced by the well-known non-profit “Global Citizen” and co-hosted by late night show hosts Steven Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.

The concert can be viewed this evening (Saturday, April 18th) at 8pm (PST) and can be view on all NBC networks, ABC, Viacom/BS networks, The CW and iHeartMedia channels. The concert started 11am PST (2PM EST), so it can be view live now or later via streaming on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Amazon Prime Video, TIDAL, Yahoo, Apple platforms and Twitch

Meanwhile, stay in as much as possible, stay safe, stay well, and please help in this battle against COVID-19 by wearing a face-covering when out near others, wash your hands often and keep them away from your face, and practice social distancing.

Thanks for posting, Eileen.

This event raised nearly $128 Million for various beneficiaries in the lucha (fight) against CV. Apparently, if you go to the website you can still donate.

Only working together will we make progress to deal with the pandemic.
