Plan International Canada Celebrates International Women's Day With #LiftHerUp Hologram Installation

Campaign Starts a Conversation About the Impact That Words Can Have on Girls' Power and Potential

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 08, 2016) - Plan International Canada is demonstrating the power of the collective voice to help end gender inequality by launching a campaign called Lift Her Up, including a hologram installation at the Toronto Eaton Centre. We are asking everyone to use the #LiftHerUp hashtag to send positive messages which will affect the hologram just as words and voices have an impact in the real world. The hologram installation will be on display until 9:30pm tonight (March 8).
