A message from Shawn…
“I’ve always been fascinated with our current generation of young artists & their ability to express themselves through self-learning and free expression online. From sharing videos on Youtube as a kid, to working with incredible artists & creative directors to visual artists on our tours, I’ve been humbled by the incredible work of young people making change in the world through their passions in music and other art forms.
Inspired by my Wonder album, I’m dropping collectible Genie Moments to raise funds with an aim to amplify, uplift, and empower young digital artists who are using their talent to create positive, social change. I’ll be donating the profits from all collections to support the efforts of the Shawn Mendes Foundation, including our Wonder Grants program and a new pool of grants we’re launching with Genies to support young digital artists. We’re hoping this drop will enable young creators to prosper. In this drop, you can contribute to that cause while unlocking rare Wonder digital wearables for your own Genie.
Together let’s give a voice to inspiring individuals & foundations on their endeavors to make change & give back!”
The Shawn Mendes Foundation seeks to amplify, empower & uplift youth changemakers, their organizations and their work.
