Kacey Musgraves, Sia and several other celebrities, including Sophia Bush and Meghan Trainor, have designed vinyl Care Bears to mark the celebration of the International Day of the Girl.
The vinyl bears were on display on Saturday at Showfields in New York City. The bears will be auctioned off on eBay and the proceeds will go to CARE, a humanitarian organization.
Musgraves designed the Earth Magic Bear, while Sia’s design is named the Youth Empowerment Bear.
Ashlee Simpson, Haylie and Hilary Duff, Katharine McPhee, Brad Paisley‘s family and Zac Posen were among the other celebrities who took part in creating vinyl Care Bears designs to support CARE’s global efforts.
“Our work at CARE is rooted in the understanding that women and girls are the key to lifting families and communities out of poverty, which is why International Day of the Girl is such an important moment,” CARE President and CEO Michelle Nunn said in a statement.
“If we’re going to help solve the biggest challenges we face as a global community, we’re going to need the power of the next generation of changemakers — powerful girls from around the world. When women and girls have the right tools, like access to clean water, education, and economic opportunities they are better placed to succeed. Bidding on a Care Bear will help us bring more of these tools to girls around the world,” she added.
