As one fifth of the pop group Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello is no stranger to the spotlight. Lately, she has used her platform for more than just writing hit songs and selling out stadiums, channeling her efforts toward charitable causes, particularly a partnership with Save the Children, an international organization which promotes children’s rights and provides relief in developing countries.
This past October, Cabello designed a t-shirt for the partnership. Save the Children invests in children every day, in times of crisis and for the future in 120 countries, including the U.S., Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Greater Middle East and Eurasia.
Cabello took to her Instagram to spread the word about her campaign: “The #LoveOnlyTee was in honor of the #InternationalDayoftheGirl with all the net proceeds going to @savethechildren ‘s effort to making sure girls get equal access to education, health care, and opportunities to succeed… Of course, there is so much more that must be done to help kids in need, but even making a small difference in one person’s life can cause a chain reaction.” With many of Fifth Harmony’s songs centered on female empowerment, it makes sense that Camila Cabello would be an advocate for such a worthwhile mission.
The black and white t-shirt features the printed words, “Love Only”, stylized eyes and Cabello’s signature. Reflecting on her inspiration for the project, Cabello said she was “so inspired by what Save the Children is doing to give girls around the world a brighter future. So I wanted to support this amazing cause by designing this special #LoveOnly tee and hoodie.” The campaign finished with 4,928 items sold in total.
On October 11, Save The Children celebrated International Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to highlighting the barriers girls face globally and giving them the resources to reach their full potential. Camila Cabello’s efforts will help the charity raise awareness of these issues and prove that with a drive and attitude to make a difference, it doesn’t take much to turn dreams into reality. Her collaboration with Save the Children will contribute to helping girls around the world, and leaves fans inspired to take action as well.
