There are about 750 million adolescent girls living in developing countries. And for too many of them, the chance to go to school, stay healthy, and live free from violence is out of reach. Girl Up is a campaign that mobilizes American girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs providing girls around the world with life-changing opportunities—giving them a chance to go to school, see a doctor, and stay safe from violence. Through its teen advisory board, nationwide network of Girl Up Clubs, and online constituents, Girl Up has rallied more than 300,000 supporters to stand up for the rights of girls everywhere.
The Global Moms Relay is an opportunity to share stories of motherhood that inspire action to help improve the lives of mothers and children everywhere.
The Global Moms Relay will go around the world from the day before International Women’s Day until the week prior to Mothers’ Day—March 7 to May 11. Every time you share a Global Moms Relay post with a friend or through your social networks, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to one of three global initiatives: the Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action (MAMA), Shot@Life, and Girl Up.
You can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. For every photo donated on behalf of Girl Up, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. has donated $1 to that cause. Photo donations on behalf of Girl Up ended when it reached its goal of $40,000.
