It is part of GO Campaign’s mission to raise awareness and funds to help orphans and vulnerable children worldwide. The nonprofit has granted more than $176,000 in emergency relief to grassroots organizations since the beginning of the pandemic.

Pattinson said, “I’m grateful that we can still come together virtually and now globally to help raise funds for GO Campaign and its mission to support families and children worldwide.”

The program will also feature special prizes and raffle items that will be awarded to viewers by celebrity guests.

McGregor remarked, “In this time when we are restricted in our travel, it’s fantastic that GO Campaign still allows us to make meaningful impact around the world. GO gives us the opportunity to connect with communities far and wide and remind us that we are all part of a bigger, global family.”
