Another day, another reason to celebrate strong, independent and smart girls around the world.
Friday marks the seventh annual celebration of International Day of the Girl and celebrities, artists and influencers alike have teamed up with humanitarian organization CARE and Care Bears™ to design unique, collectible vinyl Care Bears inspired by CARE’s work around the globe.
“I created Justice Bear — well, because [Ruth Bader Ginsburg] is my hero! — and to remind the world that while we’ve come a long way, our fight for civil rights is far from over,” Bush, 37, says in a press release.

“With women and girls leading the charge, I believe a world in which everyone is equal under the law is achievable,” add the former One Tree Hill actress.
Other bears that have been created are Simpson Ross’ Equality Bear, focused on ensuring everyone is treated with respect and love, and Skai Jackson‘s Climate Justice Bear, devoted to “cultivating and protecting” the earth.
“Each signature Care Bear is helping to spread compassion and love by supporting CARE’s essential and inspiring work,” says Elizabeth Litten Miller — Head of Brand & Marketing at Cloudco Entertainment, Care Bears™’s parent company — in the press release.

The Bears will displayed at Showfields in New York City on Saturday, where Teen Wolf star Holland Roden will also be on hand to discuss her experience traveling to Jordan with CARE in a fireside chat.
