Here’s everything you need to know...

The Beckhams are undoubtedly one of the most talked-about families in the world, and from Victoria Beckham’s business updates and Brooklyn’s budding relationship to Harper’s sweet singing videos, the family of six never fail to make viral news.

This week however it was David Beckham who became a conversation topic as he was announced as the new ambassador for #TogetherBand.

The #TogetherBand by BOTTLETOP is a campaign, launching 17 friendship bracelets representative of each of the Global Goals.

The Global Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030, devised by the United Nations in 2015. Setting out to humanise the Goals, the brand is inviting everyone around the world to choose the Goal that matters most to them and share it with someone important to them.

Opening up about his work with the campaign, David explained, ‘It’s a silly thing to say but our kids are the future. I’m very lucky to live in a city, in a country that the kids can have a great meal, they can drink fresh water, they can look after themselves and we’re very fortunate that we have that.’

He continued: ‘I want my kids to be able to understand that they are very fortunate that they have that, but other kids around the world don’t and I will continue to fight for that.’

BOTTLETOP’s aim is to engage over a billion people with the UN Global Goals in partnership with the UN Foundation, WWF-UK, Project Everyone, Eco Age, to.org, MECA, Global Citizen and the Founding Partner UBS.

If you’ll excuse us, we’re off to pick our bands.
