We want girls to wake up, be awesome and repeat. Because everyone counts. And everyone deserves an equal opportunity to a quality future.
To celebrate International Day of the Girl, we’ve teamed up with Natalia Vodianova, Elbi and Dior to create bespoke Dior stickers available exclusively on PicsArt. Together we are supporting awareness of gender inequality faced by girls all around the world.
100% of the sales of the Dior Girl Day sticker pack on PicsArt will go directly to Elbi’s charity partners, leading the way in supporting equality for women and girls. Users can create beautiful images and share their exclusive Dior designs whilst supporting the #DayOfTheGirl and spreading the word that #every1counts. (On mobile? Download the pack here, now!)
