WYD organizers asking youth to help their poorer peers [CNA]

Madrid, Spain, Jul 6, 2010 / 04:34 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Organizers for World Youth Day (WYD) Madrid 2011 launched a campaign today to encourage Spanish youth to officially register for the event in order to raise funds so that young people from emerging countries can attend.

Although participation in the main WYD events is voluntary and free, organizers hope to increase the number of Spanish youth who sign up as they will have the opportunity to make contributions to the Solidarity Fund, which will specifically assist young people from Latin America in attending.

WYD’s Communications Department filmed an appeal for the campaign at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, with the help of production company, Lee Films. The bilingual ad will be featured on the Internet, radio and TV.
