Barbie movie stars support children's charity

Words by Abi Scaife

The team behind the ‘Barbie’ movie are creating a girls empowerment initiative, in celebration of the film’s release.

Amazing! Tell me more.

The initiative is part of a collaboration between Mattel, who owns Barbie; Warner Bros, Discovery, and the charity, Save The Children.

The aim of the initiative is to help girls around the world receive the learning resources and support they need to make their dreams a reality.

Anything else?

The stars of “Barbie,” including Margot Robbie, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, and Will Ferrell, filmed a text-to-donate PSA that encourages viewers to text ‘Barbie’ to 707070 and join Warner Bros. Discovery in supporting the work of Save the Children. 

In the U.S., the partnership will support Save the Children’s early education, summer and after school programming - while internationally, it will support Save the Children’s girls’ empowerment programming.
