At the Global Citizen Festival this past weekend, First Lady Michelle Obama announced her #62MillionGirls campaign, an inspiring social media movement that asks participants to share a photo of themselves along with one thing they learned in school in order to spread the importance of educating girls around the world.

"Right now, more than 62 million girls worldwide are out of school,” she told the crowd at the outdoor concert in Central Park. “These are our girls. They deserve the same chances to get an education as my daughters and your daughters. I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls. For me this is truly a moral issue."

Celebrities such as Mindy Kaling (above) have already started to support the FLOTUS by tweeting and Instagramming photos of themselves and urging their followers to do the same. Below, see more famous faces who are raising awareness about this important issue, and be sure to share your own story using the hashtag #62MillionGirls.
