Three Day Challenge

Are you tired of feeling like you can never measure up? According to mainstream media, we should be spending our time chasing "perfection," snarking on others, and placing our self-worth in our looks. We're over it!

 

The #Proud2Bme campaign is a 3-day social media challenge to celebrate who we are and stop the media madness. Join us!

 

When: October 11th, 12th and 13th
Who: You and all your friends
How: Click on any of the tabs below to find out how you can get involved each day.

RSVP: On Facebook and let us know you are in!

 

Day 1: Pledge to Show the REAL You

Magazines use Photoshop to alter nearly every image we see. They trim away hips, lighten skin, draw in cleavage and more. Now we're starting to feel like we have to change ourselves, too. Nearly 30% of girls said that they've edited photos of themselves before posting online. Take our pledge and show the world what beauty really looks like.

 

 

Day 2: Tweet at the Media Bodysnarkers

It's time to call out tabloids and blogs that pick on celebrities for weight gain, weight loss, cellulite, wrinkles, pimples, and other human happenings. They send a terrible message about how we should treat others. Bodysnarking isn't entertainment--it's bullying.

 




Day 3: Share a Proud2Bme Compliment

Hey, guess what? Our talents matter more than our makeup. Our dreams hold more weight than the number on the scale. We love our friends because of who they are and what they do--not what they look like. So let's tell them! Share a Proud2Bme card (or create your own) and spread the word that we are more than our looks.
