World Humanitarian Day is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. The day was designated by the General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq.
This year, World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the globe. The UN its humanitarian partners are launching a ground-breaking campaign called The world needs more… This is a first-of-its-kind project with the hope of turning words into aid.
So, how does Beyonce and internet sensation Kid President fit in?
In honor of the special day, the organization assembled a photo gallery featuring aid workers who are trying to make life better for people in perilous situations. And World Humanitarian Day organizers are urging people to submit ideas for how to complete the following sentence: "The World Needs More __."
For example, the pint-sized exuberant known as Kid President taped a message backing the campaign and stating, "The world needs more hugs."
The effort also has the support of singer Beyonce, who sat for an interview with Kid President to discuss what she feels the world needs more of — and to get a kiss on the cheek, despite her interviewer's initial reservations.
Check out the hilarious, but moving video below.
