Half the Sky ‪#‎bringbackourgirls‬


Artists around the world have donated work AND shipping to raise awareness of the importance of global education for girls and to highlight the dangers many girls face, as illustrated by the recent kidnapping of nearly 300 students in Nigeria. All proceeds will be donated to, using the power of storytelling, leveraged through partnerships, to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies.

Artists for #bringbackourgirls

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of girls.
