Australia Unites – a special event

By SEVEN

Aussie music legends unite for a great cause

Seven Network, Nine and Network 10 will unite for a star-studded event to help the most vulnerable people and communities who have suffered from the devastating floods across Queensland and New South Wales.

The three networks will jointly present Australia Unites: Red Cross Flood Appeal, live at 7.30pm this Saturday, 12 March at 7.30pm AEDT, on Channel 7 and 7plus, Channel 9 and 9Now, and 10 and 10 Play. 

A host of Australian music greats will perform to raise money on the night, including Tones And I, Jimmy Barnes, Delta Goodrem, Jon Stevens, Vanessa Amorosi, Hunters and Collectors, The Living End, Casey Donovan and Sheppard.

Seven’s Natalie Barr, David Koch, Sonia Kruger and Mark Ferguson; Channel 9’s Scott Cam, Sylvia Jeffreys, Andy Lee and Peter Overton; and 10’s Carrie Bickmore, Dr. Chris Brown, Amanda Keller and Osher Günsberg are confirmed as part of the hosting ensemble, with more names to be announced soon.

All proceeds from the telethon will be donated to Australian Red Cross.

Whenever disaster strikes, Australian Red Cross works side by side with organisations such as the St Vincent de Paul Society, The Salvation Army, Lifeline and GIVIT to get help to where it’s needed most. They do an incredible job and the Red Cross is grateful to work alongside all of them.

Donations to the telethon will help Red Cross teams provide humanitarian support to people and communities smashed by the floods, which may include:

  • Enabling volunteers and staff to help with evacuation and relief centres and outreach services
  • Supporting people and communities to recover and build resilience to disasters

So far, 468 Red Cross emergency response team members and volunteers have provided support in 49 evacuation centres – and donations help to make that support possible.

Red Cross will also provide financial assistance to help people and families affected by the unprecedented floods in Queensland and New South Wales and is working around the clock to distribute grants as fast as possible.

Apart from the telethon, Australian Red Cross has already launched a flood appeal. You can donate to it now at redcross.org.au/floodsappeal or by calling 1800 733 276.

Further details for Australia Unites: Red Cross Flood Appeal will be announced soon.

Australia Unites: Red Cross Flood Appeal is Live, 7.30pm AEDT, Saturday, 12 March on Channel 7 and 7plus

Seven partners with UN Women Australia for International Women’s Day

By SEVEN, Seven West Media

Seven West Media is proud to announce it has joined with UN Women Australia as the Australian broadcast partner for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021.

The new partnership reflects the joint commitment of UN Women and Seven West Media to focus on gender equality and celebrate the accomplishments of women.

IWD is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equality. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality, with the theme and focus for 2021 being “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”.

The partnership will see Seven West Media supporting key IWD events around Australia in the lead up to and on 5 March, three days before IWD.

We’re proud to enter into this partnership with UN Women Australia in support of International Women’s Day 2021.

For us, this is a natural partnership: our workforce has a 50-50 gender balance and over half of our managers are female. We’re honoured to join forces with UN Women Australia to celebrate International Women’s Day.

James Warburton, Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer

UN Women Australia looks forward to amplifying our work driving a gender equality acceleration agenda through this partnership.

It provides an important opportunity to reach more Australians this IWD and beyond, with a call to action around why equality matters, and the steps we can all take every day to enable every woman and girl equal opportunities to lead, learn, earn and live a life free from violence and discrimination.

Janelle Weissman, UN Women Australia Executive Director

As part of the partnership with UN Women Australia, Seven presenters will host IWD events around Australia. The five events will run simultaneously, reaching thousands of people across Australia.

We look forward to celebrating on Friday, 5 March as we reflect on this year’s theme of empowering women in leadership in a COVID-19 world, and supporting equality.

James Warburton, Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer
