2020 Impact Awards Highlights

CARE Impact Awards invitation

For the first time, the CARE Impact Awards were a virtual experience, bringing together people from around the world to support those in crisis and to celebrate the contributions of women and girls. In a year of unprecedented disasters, we raised $1.6M for the CARE Crisis Response Campaign.

Check out some of our favorite moments from the 2020 dinner in the video above.
