Stand Up Lonelygirl15 is a special video Bree made in support of the Stand Up campaign. The video was not posted to the regular Lonelygirl15 YouTube account, so is not considered part of the Lonelygirl15 video series.

The Stand Up campaign is part of the Millennium Campaign which seeks to end poverty in the next generation and to fulfill the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals.


Bree: Believe it or not, I actually have something important to talk to you about today. And for once, it's not me. I'm proud to be a member of the first generation that can defeat poverty in its life time. Fact: half the world, nearly three billion people, live on less than two dollars a day. Fact: twenty percent of the world's population consumes 86 percent of its resources. Fact: every three seconds somewhere in the world, a child dies from poverty. That's about six children since this video started. We're not asking for charity. We're asking for justice. We know that world leaders have made great promises to bring this to an end.

(Bree is now standing behind her empty chair.)

Bree: We will not sit down until these promises are fulfilled. Debt cancellation. More and better aid. Trade rules that help fight poverty. You know what needs to be done Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it. And together, in our lifetime, we can witness the end of extreme poverty. I'm still standing.


  • According to Greg Goodfried as quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the Creators were approached by a marketing firm working on behalf of the Millennium Campaign. Goodfried said this is the first use of Lonelygirl15 in a marketing campaign, but not necessarily the last, as the Creators do not want Bree to become over-commercialized. They were not paid for the campaign.
  • The video was initially posted as a response to Renetto's video for the Stand Up Campaign. The video did not receive many views by lonelygirl15 standards and was reposted a few days later. When the video was reposted, a bulletin was sent from the official lonelygirl15 account. The reposted video received over 200,000 views.
  • Although this is not part of the video series, it was posted after Daniel Crossed The Line and before Order Of Denderah.
