Shawn Mendes, the pop sensation, other than for his incredible songs, is also known for charity works. Singer has written and performed many songs that raise the issue of mental health and social awareness. The Canadian singer has worked alongside many organizations that work for the empowerment of youth and equal rights.
To take his philanthropist moves further, Shawn launched his own foundation ‘The Shawn Mendes Foundation’ with a mantra of ‘Inspire, Empower and Act’. The foundation is aimed to work for the youth generation to bring about a change in the future. It will help in empowering the youngsters by giving a voice to their work. Moreover, the foundation also aims to work in other areas like children healthcare, mental health, anti bullying issues, human rights, education and sustainable developments. Sharing the news of the launch of foundation, Shawn took it to his Instagram, posting a long message, writing, “For a long time, I’ve wanted to find a way to amplify the causes that my fans care deeply about, and to further help them make their voices heard. Our generation has the power to change the future of our planet, and to help carry that change forward for so many generations to follow. With that, I’m so excited to announce the launch of @ShawnFoundation, to support causes that are important to my fans and our generation. I will work alongside my fans to help provide them with a platform and the means to give back and take action. For more information, head to ShawnMendesFoundation.org x”
The foundation will work along with Tim Hortons, a fast food restaurant chain for which Shawn did a campaign.
Soon, after the launch event, the foundation’s website met a huge response and appreciation from across the globe. The foundation also has a discussion forum where the fans and followers of Shawn can drop their advice and suggestions about the various sectors of society that needs development. A very good initiative taken by the singer will help in establishing a connection with the audience and work alongside.
