Yoko Ono Founds New Hunger Charity

Yoko Ono is launching a new charity to combat global hunger.

John Lennon’s widow has teamed up with Hard Rock International and officials at the WhyHunger campaign to create Imagine There’s No Hunger – a reference to her late husband’s peace anthem, Imagine.

The organisation will raise awareness and funds in an effort to stamp out childhood hunger and poverty, and Ono is asking fans to get involved in the project by taking a moment on 1 November (11) to “imagine a nourished and abundant world, where the world will live as one”.

Limited-edition bracelets will also be sold to support the charity’s fundraising efforts.
