Sesame Street will incorporate its first defective protagonistic character, as its creators try to give hope to children who may be in the same situation.
The initiative appears in response to 2.5 million children who live in a street situation, according to the National Center for Homeless Families of the United States.
Lily Lily will be a personality involved in a story that will also tell the experiences of living in a family that go from hostel to a hostel, spend a lot of time in family homes because they have nowhere else.
However, it is not the first time that a pink doll appears Sesame Street, since in 2011 he participated in a special program, where he quietly counted the problems that he met daily with his family.
The Lily poster will be available in three videos from YouTube's YouTube channel, including educational materials for teachers and social workers, to solve this problem.
