Supporting young people across the world.
Following England football star’s Nike campaign, twenty-three-year-old, Marcus Rashford has teamed up with Burberry, to help charities that support young people in the U.K. and across the globe.
The British label has said it continues to provide donations to FareShare which will fund over 200,000 meals distributed across 11,000 charities and community groups across the country.
In a bid to support U.K. youth organisations in Manchester, London and charities with a global reach, Burberry will go beyond providing free meals, and range from education to supporting young creatives and artists, and helping entrepreneurs.
In the UK’s capital, Burberry has also announced that it is working with London Youth, which supports a network of over 600 community youth organisations. Youth centres jointly selected by Burberry and London Youth will also receive grants to help communities in the most deprived areas.
Burberry is also contributing to Wide Rainbow, a non-profit based in New York providing access to the arts and arts education in neighbourhoods across the United States with little to no resources. The donation will provide art supplies, food deliveries and music education to young people in these communities and fund the creation of art murals to invigorate schools and shelters in New York and Los Angeles.
Lastly, the brand is teaming with the International Youth Foundation to contribute to the Global Youth Resiliency Fund. This will enable young entrepreneurs and community leaders, especially in Asia, to develop solutions to challenges including closing nutrition gaps and unlocking access to livelihoods.
