Stars Show Their Support for Project 0 At Star Studded Marine Conservation Fundraising Gig
16 December 2015. Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Clara Paget were amongst the names joining Jimmy Jagger and Bernard Fowler to show their support at a star-studded concert tonight, to raise awareness of Project 0; a marine conservation charitable fund.
Special guests also included Jo and Leah Wood, Clara Paget, Lily Donaldson and Alexandra Richards.
Project 0 board member Jimmy Jagger said that the AEG Live / Goldenvoice UK event featured sets from hot new artists The Strypes, Hidden Charms, Will Heard and was headlined by the night’s musical director; musician and Rolling Stones backing singer, Bernard Fowler who will team up with Rolling Stones’ Mick Taylor. The superstar house band was made up of rock legends including Glen Matlock, the original Sex Pistols bassist and Living Colour bassist Doug Wimbish.
The concert was held by Project 0; a global charitable fund concerned with raising vital funds for the conservation of the oceans through innovative fundraising initiatives. Throughout the evening, the sold out crowd enjoyed rock n’ roll music interspersed with short films about the work of charities supported by Project 0, and impassioned pleas by Delevingne and the bands encouraging guests and those watching via live stream to text to donate*.
Jagger commented; “Tonight people have made a positive difference to the huge issue of marine conservation, by buying a ticket and texting to donate – which you can still do. It is a mammoth task to save our oceans but the great thing is, we can fix it and that’s exactly what we plan to do. It’s been an amazing night; we’ve all been blown away by the support!”
Project 0 raises money that is invested directly into marine projects worldwide for trusted NGO partners**. While the ocean makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface, today a mere 2.8% is under any form of protection. Project 0 is going for zero pollution, zero unprotected, zero underfunded, and zero overfishing. The organisation aims to put 30% of the ocean under protection by 2030, as well as funding innovative conservation strategies that will have rapid and much needed positive impact on the ocean.
