Join the 3-Day Keep It Real Challenge: Drop Photoshop & Start a Social Media Revolution!
The Keep It Real Challenge will use social media to convince fashion & beauty mags to start printing photos that are not digitally altered. Sound good? Yeah, we think so too. Here's how to get involved.
Inspired by SPARK activist Julia Bluhm’s Change.org petition to Seventeen (Julia will be talking body image activism at our upcoming Proud2Bme summit--yay! More on that soon.), this 3-day challenge will focus on a simple and reasonable request: we want magazines to pledge to print at least one unphotoshopped image of a model. That’s it. By joining the Keep It Real Challenge from Wednesday, June 27th to Friday, June 29th, you can help make this request a reality! Two quick steps and you're all set to get started.
1. RSVP to the Keep It Real Challenge Facebook event page to learn how you can use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blogging to participate!
2. Download the Keep it Real Toolkit for more info on what to post, plus where and when to get started.
The Keep It Real Challenge was created by a partnership of organizations – SPARK, Miss Representation, LoveSocial, I Am That Girl, and Endangered Bodies. Go ahead and click over to their websites pronto.
How does the media shape the way we feel about our bodies? Let us count the ways...
