Priyanka Chopra: Girl Up's New Champion
Priyanka Chopra has joined the Girl Up movement, which is an campaign which gives American girls the opportunity to become global leaders and channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs that help females around the world.
“As a Champion for Girl Up, I am lending my voice to a cause that is very close to me. I come from a country where girls are not treated fairly – many girls are kept out of school, get married at a young age, and don’t have access to health services,” the 31-year-old entertainer said. “I am joining Girl Up because I firmly believe in the campaign’s mission, that every girl, no matter where she is born, should grow up safe, healthy and empowered. Every girl should have the opportunity to reach her full potential.”
Girl’s Up and Priyanka are trying to raise $10,000 by tomorrow, which will send 15 girls in Liberia to school. Consider donating whatever you can to join this wonderful movement.
