A KEN KRAGEN LEGACY
They lift us up when we are down, they hold us when we are frightened, and with them together, we celebrate. Hands have always been a symbol of our compassion and empathy for each other, a symbol of our humanity. From the legendary visionary behind We Are The World and Hands Across America, Ken Kragen, comes his final act of philanthropy to bring the world together again with Hands For Humanity.
This is a global message of unity and equality across all of humanity. A call to what makes us human, what unites us, what we share, and how we deal with our journey of life as a people. No matter what color, sexual identity or orientation, walk of life; we are all together.
