Michelle Obama is taking action and raising awareness for the 300 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls on Twitter, by trending the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.
This is one of the many reasons we simply adore Michelle Obama! The First Lady launched the Twitter campaign #BringBackOurGirls – in support of the 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped last month by militant group Boko Haram – and since then numerous celebrities have jumped on board to spread awareness.
The famous Nigerian terrorist and militant group condemning Western-style education has been behind thousands of kidnappings in the region. And while numerous countries have sent experts to help find the recently abducted schoolgirls, they have been unable to determine their whereabouts or strike a deal with Boko Haram for their return.
Obama is obviously showing her support for the girls and raising awareness. We need to keep this issue relevant and pressure our local governments to send aid, if we hope to see these young women rescued. Which is why we’re so glad, many other celebrities have jumped on the #BringBackOurGirls train. Let’s keep it going!
So, join the awareness! Spread the word. Tweet. Make a poster. . . Take action!
