Beyonce has revealed just what that footprint message meant on her website: “Leave Your Footprint On 19 August 2012″
It was previously believed the Bey was hinting at a performance but it turned out to be something even more important. The 30-year old pop star will team up with songwriter Diane Warren and the UN for World Humanitarian Day.
The objective, according to the website, whd-iwashere.org is simple: Help us reach 1 billion people, on 1 day, with 1 message
The “Love on Top” singer added to that message,
“We rise together – for each other. Do one thing. Nothing is too small. Do one thing for another human being. This begins with each of us. Make your mark and say, ‘I Was Here.’ And together, on August 19th, we’ll make our stories known.”
Bey and Diane are expected to donate a video of “I Was Here” to be filmed at the UN General Assembly Hall in front of a live audience.
In another statement Beyonce added: “We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help? World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.”
Will you leave you footprint on August 19th?
