Raise Your Right Hand Ring For Africa

Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, and Patricia Arquette helped support the Diamond Information Center's Raise Your Right Hand Ring for Africa campaign at the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards® red carpet, generating $30,000 for three special projects that will directly benefit various African communities. Raise Your Right Hand Ring for Africa is part of the diamond industry's ongoing efforts to raise star-powered support for important projects and causes that are vital to the continued prosperity of key diamond-producing nations around the world, particularly southern Africa.

Beyoncé, who wore a spectacular 25-carat grey, yellow and white Diamond Right Hand Ring by diamond jeweler, Lorraine Schwartz is contributing $10,000 to Link-A-Child (, a project Beyoncé personally visited during a trip to the African continent. Link-A-Child is a not-for-profit organization that serves to care for the more than 7 million child orphans and motherless babies in Africa who are abandoned. The organization connects children to people who take care of them, and to potential corporate and individual donors who provide aid to orphanages in all 26 states in the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria. Link-A-Child's belief is that, through generating proper public awareness, everyone will share in the moral vision to help rehabilitate these children by showing their support and ensuring they receive basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and education to give these children a proper chance for a prosperous life and future.
