While I was in Minnesota, I had a chance to catch up with the Girl Up team and talk about ways to promote their cause and raise funds and collaborate in creative ways. Victoria Justice was in town as well and we got a chance to chat it up as well. All I can tell you is that she's a super talented and beautiful person that deserves everything she's worked for.
Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, gives American girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for programs of the United Nations that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls.
Through Girl Up’s support, girls have the opportunity to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Campaign supporters are encouraged to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $5 or more to provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, safety from violence and more.
To give a high five and learn more, please join them and visit GirlUp.org.
