Frampton is being honored along with Angelique Kidjo, the Grammy Award-winning singer, co-founder of Batonga and UNICEF Ambassador. Musician and producer, Mark Ronson, will host the event and musical performances will be conducted by Florence + The Machine, Lily Allen, Rudimental, Blood Orange and others.

"I am humbled to be honored alongside Angelique Kidjo at The Other Ball," noted Frampton. "Given my genuine passion for both music and driving positive change, I am delighted to join Leigh Blake and the team at Arms Around The Child for an evening that aims to provide at-risk children in India and Africa with something every human being deserves — a safe and loving childhood."

Frampton’s long-time commitment to Corporate Citizenship has inspired and sparked change throughout the business world. Under Frampton’s leadership, Interbrand has developed a global Corporate Citizenship practice and has sponsored numerous employees on volunteer trips with non-profit partners such as UNICEF and Heifer International. In recent years, Interbrand has also collaborated with brands like FEED, (RED), Water.org and Pencils of Promise—all in an effort to make a positive impact worldwide. Interbrand has also assisted many of its corporate clients in integrating Corporate Citizenship into their brands.
