Celebrate your childhood hero with a song

World Childhood Foundation has made it possible for you to thank someone, who has made ​​a difference in your childhood, with a song. Spotify is a partner in the new campaign, and the launch event took place at our headquarters in Stockholm.

On the 6th of September, the red carpet was rolled out on Spotify’s headquarters in Stockholm when the World Childhood Foundation and Princess Madeleine of Sweden unveiled the new campaign Thank You. With this campaign, you can send a special song to someone who has been important to you in your childhood, with a message to thank them. Princess Madeleine is the project administrator for Childhood, and in an introduction video for Thank You, she sent the song “Walking On A Dream” by Empire of the Sun to her mother Queen Silvia, with the message “for all the times you stayed up and listened.”

The world famous DJ Tiësto also sent a video message that was shown to all guests at the launch event. He wanted to dedicate a song to his mother, who is an important part of his life, and always has been there for him. The song was his own “Love Is the Answer – Tiesto Remix”, and all the proceeds for it go to Childhood.

Spotify is proud to be a partner to the Thank You campaign, and we think this is a fantastic opportunity to combine love of music with caring for humanity. If you want to send a thank you to an important person from your childhood or give a donation to Childhood, visit ThankYou.org
