Girl Power Unites in DC
Nigel Barker, Estelle & Washington Mystics join hundreds of DC-area teens to help adolescent girls around the world through UN Foundation's Girl Up campaign on MLK Service Day
By: Celebrity Society
This Martin Luther King weekend, the United Nations Foundation’s Unite for Girls Tour came to Washington, DC, to introduce its newest campaign – Girl Up – which helps American girls channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for their sisters in the developing world. Hundreds of area teens – from Baltimore to Virginia – came together at a special event in Anacostia, to join special celebrity guests fashion photographer/author and Champion Nigel Barker, Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Estelle, Washington Mystics, and Miss Teen Maryland to tell the world that they care about the health and education and future of girls in development countries. The Girl Up campaign is raising awareness about the 600 million adolescent girls living in developing countries who lack access to basic needs such as education and health care, and encourages American girls to give back.
