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!

Hans Zimmer Tribute at the Annenberg Raises $1.2 Million for Israel Philharmonic
Two giants in their respective fields, Hans Zimmer and Zubin Mehta, held court Wednesday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, where Zimmer was bestowed a lifetime achievement award by the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, for which Mehta is co-chairman and holds the post of music director for life.
But it was Zimmer — perhaps the closest thing to a mogul in the scoring realm — who was clearly humbled by the honor. “I was a little nervous about a world-class orchestra playing Schubert (Symphonia N° 8, Unfinished) and Zimmer, and Schubert is a real composer,” Zimmer told Variety. “And just seeing how they really knew my stuff and they loved it. There was this bond.”
