Because I Am A Girl
Rick has added his voice to this incredible campaign to educate and empower girls
Plan International’s Because I am a Girl initiative is a social movement to unleash the power of girls and women to claim a brighter future for girls in the developing world. In addition to donating his actor salary to the campaign when he performs his play HARDSELL 2.0, Rick co-created All About Eve, a multimedia presentation for girls (or anyone) to adapt and present to their school or community.
Rick was approached by a Because I am a Girl staffer who had seen Bigger Than Jesus, one of his solo shows. She especially liked that social issues were being raised in a multimedia performance and we talked about how it could apply to the campaign.
What emerged was All About Eve, a multimedia presentation co-created with MacHomer Sean Lynch and illustrated by Crystal Lancaster. Both Sean and I have two daughters, and we wanted to find a way to communicate girls’ issues in an exciting way to a large audience.
