OUR INITIATIVES

The activists of HALT EBOLA are primarily members of the NYC arts community, so our impulse has been to summon the resources of our creative community--and its audiences--for this cause.

 

SUPPORT PRIVATE SECTOR GIVING

We aim to reinforce existing, experienced charities and NGO's with fundraising assistance. Our initial list of charitable recipients are highly-rated charities. At this first stage, we are limiting our support to charities located in New York City, in order to facilitate our working closely with them.

THEATER TICKETING INITIATIVE
We hope to mobilize our audiences to donate to Ebola relief by enabling a donation option through theater ticketing providers in our industry. After purchsing a theater, dance, film or music tickets, audience members will be offered the opportunity to donate for Ebola relief.

CELL PHONE INITIATIVE
We will enable a cell phone donations system so that producers and promoters can encourage their audiences to make donations before they turn cell phones off for the show.


EDUCATION

PUBLIC INFORMATION
Mobilize public service announcements and solicit for donated air time on broadcast outlets to bring attention to charities fighting the epidemic.

RADIO BROADCASTING TO AFFECTED REGIONS
Radio is powerful in Africa. In collaboration with cultural anthropologists, we will create radio programming for the region that will educate and combat misinformation.
