Act for Earth

In 2009, the Kuwait-America Foundation raised over $1.8 million to benefit Conservation International in support of their efforts to harness nature as a solution to climate change.

At the event, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was an Honored Guest and Humanitarian Award recipient; actor Leonardo DiCaprio was an Honored Guest and Environmental Leadership Award recipient; world-renowned musician and composer Marvin Hamlisch performed; and NBC's Tom Brokaw served as Master of Ceremonies.
