Every day, over 168 million children around the world wake up and go to work. They work in mines and sweatshops, on farms and on the street. Over half of them work in ways that put their health and safety at risk. That's unacceptable.
On 12 June, the ILO will launch the 2014 edition of the Red Card to Child Labour campaign. To mark the occasion, we're releasing a new song, Til Everyone Can See, written especially for the campaign by Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger and violinist Ann Marie Simpson, with featured artists Pharrell Williams, Hans Zimmer, Dominic Lewis, Travis Barker, LIZ, and Minh Dang.
Everyone who joins the #RedCard to Child Labour campaign will be able to download the song on 12 June.
Join this Thunderclap today and be part of the global movement to end child labour and give children around the world a brand new start.
All together against child labour!
