Maroon 5 launch charity day

Maroon 5 have teamed up with UNICEF to "build a better world for children".

The 'Won't Go Home Without You' hitmakers have signed up to help the children's charity raise money for disadvantaged kids across the world with the help of their loyal fans.

A statement on the charity's official website from the band reads: "June 25 marks 14 years that we've been making music together and sharing it with our fans. It's been an incredible experience, but it's nothing compared to making a difference in a child's life.

"We want to celebrate this milestone by asking you to join us and help UNICEF reach kids in need. We're blown away by the work UNICEF does to provide health care, water, education, and emergency relief to the children who need it the most. We want to give every child the chance to fulfill their potential, whether they want to compose music, discover scientific breakthroughs, or be a leader in their community."

Whilst the band added to PEOPLE magazine: "We are truly excited to kick off this campaign with UNICEF and ask our fans to join us in support of the organisation.

"Maroon 5 Day is not just about the music, it's about working together to build a better world for children so that every child, everywhere has the chance to grow up happy and healthy."

Fans have been asked to post the hashtags #Maroon5 and #childrenfirst and make donations to UNICEF from now until Saturday June 25 for a chance to win a pair of VIP tickets to see the group in concert.
