BURBERRY SUPPORTS YOUTH AROUND THE WORLD

By Crash

Burberry has decided to give back to younger generations by partnering with English international footballer and youth advocate Marcus Rashford MBE with whom it will join forces with charities supporting young people across the world. Rashford is known for his efforts towards ending child food poverty, so naturally the British fashion house is continuing to provide donations to FareShare, which will fund over 200,000 meals distributed across 11,000 charities and community groups across the UK.

Burberry has pledged to support UK youth organisations in Manchester, London and charities with a global reach. Programmes range from education to supporting young creatives and artists, and helping entrepreneurs to tackle some of the world’s significant challenges. These outreaches will positively affect the lives of tens of thousands of young people across the world – encouraging and enabling them to achieve.

Alongside youth centres in London and Manchester, Burberry is contributing to Wide Rainbow, a non-profit based in New York City 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 as well as fund the creation of art murals to invigorate schools and shelters in New York and Los Angeles.

To further the international reach of this work, Burberry is partnering 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.
