The outbreak of the coronavirus is having a devastating impact on economies, businesses, and families around the world.
ONE Championship, like all other sports properties, has similarly had to suspend our live stadium events - one of our key mediums of fulfilling our mission of unleashing real life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, dreams, inspiration, and strength.
While we continue to bring the strength and joy the world needs through our various platforms, we would like to do more.
During this period of isolation caused by city-, state-, or even nationwide lockdowns, lower income families are affected more than others. Such families often rely on multiple shift-based jobs, and the current lack of employment is likely to drive them further into poverty.
To do our part, we at ONE are donating 10% of all proceeds on the new ONE.SHOP to families impacted by COVID-19, and are working closely with them to make sure they are sustained during this difficult period. This initiative will continue until we get through the current crisis, as ONE.
Prior to the crisis, ONE has already been working with various community organizations on a number of on-going initiatives to alleviate extreme poverty. For COVID-19 specific efforts, we will be deepening our efforts with the following organizations.
Gawad Kalinga is a Philippines-based poverty alleviation and nation-building movement whose mission is to end poverty for 5 million families by 2024.
Global Citizen is the world's largest social action platform that uses its collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.
During this time, we are also supporting Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund. Feeding America is a nationwide network of over 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people across the USA.

Aside from that, we advise you to follow directives from your local governments about social distancing in order to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.
