October 11th will be declared International Day of the Girl (as declared by the UN), and Disney has launched a new global video series, produced by a group of aspiring female filmmakers spotlighting female trailblazers. These digital shorts offer advice and inspiration on achieving success for the next generation of young women all over the world!
Disney has provided the 21 filmmakers (from 13 different countries) mentorship and the equipment necessary to make their #DreamBigPrincess video. Not only that, from now to November 20th, 2018 Disney will donate $1 to Girl Up for each like or share of a video or photo posted publicly with #DreamBigPrincess on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!
"Last year’s donation from Disney has already had huge impact, allowing us to extend our network of Girl Up clubs outside the US by more than 50%, giving more girls the leadership skills they need to advocate for themselves and others.”
- Melissa Kilby | Girl Up Co-Executive Director
In honor of the new #DreamBigPrincess digital short series, Disney Parks guests around the world are invited to Disneybound in outfits inspired by their favorite female Disney Characters on October 11th.
