Lindsay Lohan took a break from filming Sky TV’s hit comedy, Sick Note, to make a surprise appearance at the launch of One Family. Lohan, who took to the stage to donate an on-the-set experience, expressed her excitement about the charity. “One Family is bringing change to the world and I’m delighted to be a part of it.”
At the launch of One Family, its Chairman, Sharif Banna, outlined the organisation’s commitment to using pioneering technology to address issues on a global scale. “Our work is about global social enterprise,” he said. “We will inspire our vast network to translate their social media engagement into powerful social action.” One Family brings fans and followers, celebrity ambassadors, and high-profile personalities together on digital and social platforms, and empowers them to bring about meaningful change in the world. Hosted by BBC news presenter Asad Ahmad and BBC & BT Sport broadcaster Reshmin Chowdhury, the evening saw the launch of the digital-first charity and its inaugural campaign to combat child trafficking.
Maher Zain, the multi-platinum selling star and co-founder of One Family, performed “Let Them Know,” a moving song especially written for the event about the need to do more about child trafficking. Zain has 25 million Facebook followers and had had over 3 billion YouTube hits in the last two years.
Two-time World Champion, Amir Khan, and chart-topping music producer, Naughty Boy, also showed their support.
