DOVE: Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference
I’ve always been impressed by organizations that seek to point out the inner beauty in each of us, especially today in a world-market saturated with ads to be perfect at every turn. Honestly, there are times when I could use a little reminder to believe in myself. My daughter is now a young woman, and I know that no matter how many times I tell her how beautiful she is, there is a world of people telling her differently. The same applies to my niece, who is now in her tender middle school years, when they question every single thing about themselves. Oh, you couldn’t pay me enough money to be their ages again! Precious creatures…and we seek to empower and educate them so that they have strong foundations from which to spring into this vast and beautiful world.
One of the organizations that has been working to remind girls, the world over, that beauty begins within is Dove. There are a thousand different ways to make a difference in a young girl’s life, and it begins with you. It starts at home and it is a growing movement. Dove started a global conversation about the need for a wider definition of beauty with the Campaign for Real Beauty. The Dove Movement for Self-Esteem sets out a bold new vision for the brand, and provides women everywhere with opportunities to mentor the next generation and celebrate real beauty.
Powerful and simple…send a word of encouragement, spend thirty minutes on a self-esteem building activity, or support self-esteem education in your own home town. Color Me Impressed by an organization that is helping our girls to help themselves, every day.
All the best to you and yours.
