The festival has featured legendary artists like Neil Young, Foo Fighters, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, John Mayer and more. Supporters of this revolutionary campaign include Bill Gates, Bono, Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Larry King, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, President Jim Kim of the World Bank, and countless world leaders.

There are tens of millions of children growing up throughout the world severely disadvantaged because they have no family. That’s tens of millions of children living every day without the hugs, love, and support a parent can provide.
After Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman adopted their two children, Deborra-lee had a vision to support all the other children who were left without families. That vision was Hopeland, the world’s only Family Nation where our actions make it possible for each child to grow up with loving parents. In Hopeland, every child has the opportunity to become a happy, healthy, and productive individual who belongs to a family, a community, and the world. Hopeland facilitates collaboration between the world’s leading nonprofits with a common goal to provide children with their birthright: a loving, attentive family. Deborra-lee continues to marshal change and raise awareness as an active member of Hopeland’s Advisory Board.
