"There is no reason anyone on this planet should suffer from chronic hunger." -- Kelly Moore
Music For Mankind® is a series of benefit concerts featuring Kelly Moore. Proceeds of the concerts are contributed to World Food Program USA (WFP USA) (formerly Friends of the World Food Program) and other national and local humanitarian organizations for humanitarian relief in major disasters worldwide, as well as other humanitarian initiatives locally, regionally and nationally.
Every day, 24,000 people die of hunger, 18,000 of them are children. Unfortunately, these numbers will continue to rise in the coming weeks and months as the cost of natural resources and the price of food continues to increase dramatically.
Singer, instrumentalist, composer Kelly Moore had an idea where he could make a difference with his musical talents to help those suffering from hunger. In 2007 that idea became a reality known as Music For Mankind®.
Music For Mankind® is a series of benefit concerts where a portion of the proceeds are contributed to World Food Program USA and other national, regional, and local charities. It's overall goal is to provide entertainment and at the same time create awareness for a global issue that can be resolved. Since its inception, Music For Mankind® has been able to feed over 40,000 people on a local, national and global scale.
Music For Mankind® currently offers two music performance types:
In 2008 Kelly began speaking to local community groups, schools and colleges about chronic global hunger. In 2009 he finished production of the documentary "Nicaragua - On The Ground" of his trip as US Delegate for World Food Program USA to Nicaragua and the work of the UN World Food Program there, and is now giving presentations of the documentary for local groups, schools and colleges, as well.
Recently, Kelly was given the title Community Delegate for World Food Program USA (formerly Friends of the World Food Program). Recognized for his tireless efforts to relieve the fear and stress of a person in desperate need of nourishment, he is one of only three persons in the world with this title.
Kelly has traveled as a US Delegate for World Food Program USA (formerly Friends of the World Food Program) to Nicaragua in 2008 and Peru in 2009, where he observed WFP field operations and took part in assistance programs.
