About Concern Worldwide:
Concern Worldwide is a New York based Humanitarian organization that has served the poorest people throughout the world for the past 40 years. Concern Worldwide has 4,000 personnel working in 30 of the poorest countries throughout the world, focusing on education, credit and savings, emergency relief, health, and HIV/AIDS. Concern Worldwide has earned an international reputation for being 'first in and last out' in responding to large scale humanitarian crises.

"It might be Friday 13th -- unlucky for some, but not for Concern Worldwide US today. What a great honor to close the Market. Friday 13th is the 4th week of Concern's humanitarian appeal for Darfur and Chad, where Concern is mounting a large scale humanitarian response. If we can put a spotlight today on the crises in Darfur and Chad and ask everyone who hears the closing bell to log onto www.concernusa.org and donate $13 to support the families in Darfur and Chad, then Friday 13th will have a very different meaning," says Siobhan Walsh, Executive Director of Concern Worldwide US.
