Go Blue for UNICEF on World Children's Day

Actor Millie Bobby Brown has a special World Children's Day message for kids and adults everywhere: Go Blue!


Wearing something blue on November 20 is one way to show support for the world's children. Another way is by doing something blue: Sign UNICEF's global petition asking leaders to commit to fulfilling the rights of every child now and for future generations, or shop for blue Inspired Gifts — vital supplies children need to survive and thrive. 


In the video below, Brown teams up with UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson and Lilly Singh, singer-songwriter Dua Lipa and performance artists Blue Man Group to stand up for children everywhere. "World Children's Day is the one day a year when feeling blue means feeling — and doing — good," said Brown.



"World Children's Day is a fun day with a serious message," said the 14-year-old actor — who symbolically changed her name to Millie Bobby 'Blue' to mark the occasion. "It is a day where all children are encouraged to speak out about what matters to them, like education, safe spaces to learn and play, and positive environments. By going blue for UNICEF on this day, we are demanding the world provide a brighter future for kids."
