Join Salma Hayek Pinault, Arianna Huffington, Freida Pinto and Robbie Myers to CHIME for Education

CHIME FOR CHANGE has partnered with CrowdRise to raise funds for girls’ education globally, through its CHIME for Education campaign. The activation is led by team captains Salma Hayek Pinault, Arianna Huffington, Freida Pinto and ELLE Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers. Learn more and support at https://www.crowdrise.com/chime.

CHIME for Education is part of a 2014 Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action (CTA) through No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, a Clinton Foundation initiative to inspire and advance the full participation of women and girls around the world. The No Ceilings “CHARGE” CTA (Collaborative Harnessing Ambition and Resources for Girls’ Education) is designed to coordinate support, expand access and improve quality for girls’ secondary education globally.

Salma Hayek Pinault teamed up with UNICEF for her CHIME for the Children of Syria fundraising appeal, which aims to increase access to education for out-of-school children in Syria and surrounding countries. Hayek in fact visited Syrian refugees in Lebanon on April 25 to draw attention to the urgent humanitarian needs of children and families whose lives have been upended by the brutal conflict in Syria over the last four years.

Other team captains include:

– CHIME FOR CHANGE Advisory Board member Arianna Huffington, raising funds for the next CHIME storytelling workshop, to be held in Athens, hosted by CHIME Managing Editor Mariane Pearl;

– Freida Pinto, Global Ambassador for Plan International, is partnering with Plan to rebuild educational opportunities for children and youth recovering in Nepal;

– Robbie Myers, editor in chief of ELLE magazine in the US, fundraising to send young female leaders to the 2015 G(irls)20 Summit in Turkey.

The CHIME for Education campaign runs through July 8 and will feature thank-you prizes from the team captains and non-profit beneficiaries. https://www.crowdrise.com/chime.
