It’s Dora The Explorer’s 10th Anniversary and she celebrated with the help of fellow Latina celebrity, Salma Hayek. At the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank yesterday, Nickelodeon launched a unique pro-social campaign titled “Beyond the Backpack,” which champions overall school readiness for preschoolers.
“We are proud to be partnering with Salma Hayek Pinault, The Children’s Defense Fund, and National PTA in this effort, and are thrilled that they are still many, many more adventures yet ahead for Dora to continue to explore with our audiences around the world,” said Cyma Zarghami, President of Nickelodeon, MTVN Kids, and Family Group.
The 43-year-old actress read some Dora adventures to the kids at the event, after which a series of other fun activities were held, such as a fundraising auction of limited-edition Dora backpacks, with designs by Salma and other celebrities.
