George Harrison's Foundation Donates Half a Million to COVID-19 Relief


George Harrison ’s Material World Foundation has donated $500,000 to COVID-19 relief.


The foundation — started by the late Beatle in 1973 with the release of the LP Living in the Material World — donated the funds to MusiCare’s COVID-19 Foundation, Save the Children, and Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders).


In addition, the foundation launched “The Inner Light Challenge,” in which users across the globe share a line, verse, or chorus from the Beatles ’ 1968 B side — featured in a new lyric-video below.


One dollar will be donated to pandemic relief for every person who posts the clip with the hashtag #innerlight2020, with a maximum of $100,000.


“These lyrics sung by George are a positive reminder to all of us who are isolating, in quarantine, or respecting the request to shelter in place,” Harrison’s widow, Olivia, said in a statement.


Dhani recently revived his father’s record label, Dark Horse Records, and has plans for previously unreleased material to see the light of day.
