Marcia Cross: Help change the world

November 2012: Actress and Plan Ambassador Marcia Cross recently visited India to see how Plan is helping to strengthen communities through programmes that focus on empowering girls.

As a mother of 2 young girls herself, Marcia strongly believes that everyone has the right to a good education and that by empowering girls we can change the world.

In October, Marcia helped light the Empire State Building in New York bright pink to kick off the global launch of Plan’s Because I am a Girl campaign on the first ever international Day of the Girl.
