Yes, I’m beautiful! Join a movement to make positive media

New Moon Girls and Pigtail Pals have launched the Yes, I’m beautiful campaign to use media in a positive way to promote true beauty. Responding to a rash of media attention over teens and tweens posting videos on YouTube asking if they were ugly or not, our communities decided to provide a positive response.

We want girls to focus on the true beauty of their spirits and unique individuality and to learn to ask for positive support from those they love rather than strangers. I hope you enjoy the videos and consider submitting your own. You can email your videos to  beautynewmoon@gmail.com.

      Thanks, Naomi, it’s so important for our children to learn to use media in a positive, effective way rather than in a destructive way. I love this idea!
