Have you heard about the new Dove Campaign For Real Beauty or seen the commercials focusing on building self-esteem?
The Dove Self Esteem Fund was created in 2006 to educate and inspire girls to a wider definition of beauty and help them with a stronger sense of self esteem.
The Dove Self-Esteem Fund is committed to helping girls build positive self-esteem and a healthy body image, with a goal of reaching 5 million girls globally by 2010.
This fund really hit home for me, it takes me back to my adolescents and I remember what an awkward time that was in my life. I was not a girly girl and was clueless when it came to fashion or style. I was more interested in sports than anything else which at times made me feel like an outcast.
Anyway, if you have a daughter, please take a look at the Dove self-esteem site and get involved. There are useful tools and ways you can get involved in community workshops.
