LOS ANGELES, Jan. 9, 2017 /CNW/ -- Fabletics is excited to announce its exclusive and long term partnership with the United Nations Foundation's Girl Up campaign, a "by girls, for girls" movement that empowers girls to become a force for change for girls everywhere.
"I dream about a day where women everywhere are able to live their most empowered, most fulfilling lives," said Kate Hudson. "And the best place to start is with girls because they represent tomorrow's leaders, change-makers and innovators. It's only natural to join forces with Girl Up and help further their mission to unite girls to truly change the world."
Girl Up believes that when you begin with providing adolescent girls education, access to basic health services and a safe environment, they have the ability to transform their communities. When girls stand up for girls in need, they empower each other and transform the world. As the United Nations Foundation's adolescent girl campaign, Girl Up engages girls to take action. Led by a community of nearly half a million passionate advocates raising awareness and funds, their efforts help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.
Fabletics is committed to the empowerment of women, and central to that philosophy is to create a community that nurtures inspiring, confident and spirited individuals that are able to realize their best selves. By partnering with Girl Up, Fabletics is able to reach a young community of women around the world and affect change. Fabletics has committed to partnering with the organization through exclusive capsule collections, events and awareness-focused campaigns over the next few years. Together, Fabletics and Girl Up aim to engage girls to be happy, healthy and positioned to grow into the next generation of strong women leaders.
"Girl Up girls are on the move, making change worldwide, which is why we're excited to partner with Fabletics in helping girls live their happiest, healthiest lives," said Anna Blue, Deputy Director of Girl Up.
