ABOUT â€œTHE GIRL EFFECTâ€? FROM W+K | Nike Foundation:
â€œThe Girl Effectâ€? is an effort to raise awareness and supply tools to help spread the word and create The Girl Effect ripple. The campaign relays to viewers the idea of Global Giving. The amazing thing we learned from the Nike Foundation is that when girls are given the opportunity, they will raise the standard of living for themselves, their families, and by extension, everyone around them. The Girl Effect is a real phenomenon, and a smart economic investment. The campaign wanted to come up with a name that was empowering to girlsâ€”one that felt grounded in the reality of what girls can do.
