They advocate for and defend women's human rights by making grants to support women's groups around the world. And even those who can’t make it to the show have the opportunity to get involved by donating online get the details at www.nelsonpla.com.

The show concept is the brainchild of Nelson Pla of the band clueLess who had been talking for some time now about doing something special for his birthday. More than just a show, he also wanted it to mean something and thus a concept was born. In addition to the show Nelson wanted to create additional exposure for the Global Fund for Women and began producing a series of PSA’s in support of the event and organization. These PSA’s can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lEnIBDnRQU and feature a series of artists, musicians, actors and community members known and unknown spreading a beautiful message: “Women’s Rights are Human Rights and if you don’t understand this you are clueless!”
