“I strongly believe that love does justice. And it is for this simple reason that we are all responsible for building a better world. Since love energizes faith, the opposite must also be true. The amazing lives we have been gifted, offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give the less fortunate a better future and opportunities.”

At the Crossroads of Reopening the Economy and Keeping Citizens Safe, most government leaders are facing one of the most defining decisions of their respective careers.

It's now been over 2 months that we were ordered to stay home with NO actual plan. While we understand that none of us was prepared to handle such a crisis, we are equally concerned about our ongoing abilities to provide for our families and dependents.

With several companies now out of business and Unemployment rates soaring past any previous peak, most companies absolutely need to get back to active operating to stand a chance of avoiding bankruptcy.

However, as much as we wish to resume our respective activities,  the risk of expanded infections is still very high especially for high traffic cities like New York, London and Paris. Therefore, we must recognize that our best shot at avoiding a second wave depends on our ability as citizens to act responsibly by Washing our Hands, Wearing Face Masks and following the CDC guidelines Until We Are ALL safe again.  

On May 30, we focus the discussions on a hopeful Lockdown exit, a progressive adaptation to the post COVID-19 economic realities and a responsible citizenship to protect ourselves and our neighbors.

All Proceeds will go toward the ongoing missions of Bervann Foundation and Andrea Bocelli Foundation against Coronavirus:

Bervann Foundation will use the proceeds for:
* Distribution of Medical and Personal Protective Equipment to Hospitals and Care centers in the US and Africa;

* Distribution of Non-Medical Cloth Masks and Hand Sanitizers to Civilians to Prevent a Second Wave of infections in the US;

- ReOpening the economy is one thing, surviving a second wave of infections is another. The highest risks of contamination reside in high traffic subway and train stations, co-working premises and entertainment areas. BF would like to produce large quantities of cloth masks and purchase large quantities of hand sanitizers to distribute for FREE in the most active areas. THIS IS HOW WE BEAT A SECOND WAVE OF CORONAVIRUS. Telling people to wear a mask or wash hands is important but doesn’t get the job done for a lot of them, putting the items in their hands will take us a step further.

* Strategic Support and Funding to Small Businesses, Freelancers and Independent Contractors critically affected by the COVID-19 in the US and Africa.
- Not everyone is eligible to benefit from the Government or the banks' assistance. With unemployment at its highest, millions of bright individuals have nowhere to turn to. We would like to help as many as we can repurpose their talents or services and help them adapt with the post COVID-19 reality.


Andrea Bocelli Foundation will use the proceeds for:
* Distribution of Medical and Personal Protective Equipment to Hospitals and Care centers in Italy;

* Contribution to sustainable digital education to guarantee access to education to thousands of students: Pilot-phase-project to benefit some public schools and pediatric hospital schools. ABF’s new distance learning initiatives will strive to:

1. Create a library of devices, so as to allow students to connect with their teachers and educators;

2. Develop a platform for the ABF Lab, which will allow access to a series of online educational content, including interactive content;

3. Train the professional role of the digital atelierista, a 4.0 librarian able to support teachers, parents and students on the correct usage of the tools and on how to use the same tools to maintain and develop relationships.


Bervann Foundation Inc. is a non-profit and tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) organization of the Internal Revenue Code.

Andrea Bocelli Foundation

The Andrea Bocelli Foundation (ABF) was established in July 2011 by Italian Global Icon Andrea Bocelli and his family to “give back” after being inspired by the affection and positivity received from fans and partners around the world. ABF has since grown into an independent non-profit led by world-class professionals that oversee the strategic development of projects in Italy and abroad. The Foundation’s core mission is to empower people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy, distress due to illness and social exclusion by promoting and supporting national and international projects that promote the overcoming of these barriers and the expression of their full potential. Since 2011, ABF has raised over 30 million Euros  resulting in key initiatives such as the construction of 8 schools in Italy and Haiti that offer daily access to a world-class education to over 3,000 students. Additionally, ABF has created projects that guarantee welfare assistance for over 400,000 people through various initiatives including providing access to clean water and HIV treatment.
