Unilever Project Sunlight is launching “Bright Future Speeches,” a campaign to shine a light on young people who have new visions for a brighter future.

These new leaders hold strong views on making sustainable living commonplace for everyone, and will share their ideas to tackle the issues above.

Kylee McCumber from Leominster, Massachusetts and Elijah King from Los Angeles, California are two of the eight voices being amplified through the release of the first TV advertisement for the Unilever brand itself.

Films will show eight young people’s stories across five countries over the coming weeks, including Indonesia, the UK and the US. Everyone who views the films can choose to get involved by raising awareness, volunteering, or supporting NGOs like Feeding America who work to help solve hunger.

Tackling these issues is at the heart of the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, which has pledged to help more than 1 billion people take action to improve their health and well-being by 2020.

Youth hunger activist, Elijah King, age 14, has been feeding the homeless for eight years by delivering meals and volunteering at community outreach events in his hometown of Los Angeles, CA.

To help fight the issue of child hunger in the US, Unilever has partnered with the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization, Feeding America, which serves 12 million children each year.

Unilever will be sharing the “Bright Future Speeches” films and content on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, inviting people to join the conversation online.
