On Thursday, I shared my story of depression, abuse and self-esteem issues.
And I have good news. There is someone who cares. A very big someone.
Dove is a company who is trying to combat the negative self-esteem issues in young girls.
The Dove mission is to reach 5 million girls with self-esteem programming by 2010. Since 2005, the brand has reached over 3.5 million girls globally.
In fact, every time you buy Dove beauty care products your purchase supports the Dove Self Esteem Fund. T
his fall Dove launched the “Thank you for Making a Difference” program to thank supporters for building girl’s self-esteem and to invite everyone to share their stories about making a difference in self-esteem.
This is an amazing task they are undertaking, because being frank about self-esteem is tough, and not many people want to talk about it. I know it took me weeks to put a page of my story down, and I am lucky enough to have my blog as an open forum. Dove is giving them the opportunity they might not have had otherwise.
You can find out more about this campaign by visiting http://www.campaignforrealbeauty.com/. It’s a great site loaded with information regarding TRUE beauty.
For my readers, I am giving away a True You! Work book- mother and daughter guide for self-esteem. Just leave a comment below, about what you have done to raise self-esteem and you are entered. The winner will be chosen on Saturday, January 16th.
Dear readers: I received Dove products & the True You! Workbooks for free from Dove. And honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time. I am very thankful that Dove takes the time to support this cause, and I will only be buying Dove body products because of it. This one really hit close to home for me.
