January Brings SO Much Beautiful!


See Beautifulis thrilled to name (drum roll please!) The Dressing Room Project as our January Non-Proft of the month!


The Dressing Room Project

When it comes to seeing beautiful, one of the most wonderful parts of what we get to do is support wonderful non-profit organizations. As we begin 2012 we are thrilled to celebrate the work of another incredible group of people who are committed to making this world a better place.

Why The Dressing Room Project?

When we get dressed each day it entails more than  the clothes on our backs and  the accessories we use to adorn our outfits. We dress with confidence. We dress with feeling. We dress with empowerment. We dress with strength. Pop culture often leaves us feeling that if we aren’t “dressed” by their definition of beauty then we don’t look good and that can  leave us feeling pretty crummy. The Dressing Room Project exists to change that and we’re seeing so much beautiful in their mission!
The Dressing Room Project “promotes positive body image through girls' social activism - encouraging a healthy body, mind and spirit” (Dressing Room Project, 2011).


How does The Dressing Room Project see & spread beautiful?
As a “girl-powered rebellion to free girls and women from the bonds of media-imposed standards of beauty” (yippee!), they spread  beautiful in several ways:
·         They post girl-designed cards on mirrors in women’s dressing rooms everywhere to help girls & women feel more comfortable in our uniquely beautiful bodies.
·         They invite all to join the rebellion by submitting your own design. Directions: Use a 3 x 5 card and either mail it to us or scan it (at 300 dpi) and send it via email. Either way, please include your name, age and state (or country if not USA.)
·         Their registered Action Teams offer girls the opportunity, through workshops and other activities, to create cards with affirming messages.
·         After converting cards to the official Dressing Room Project format, they duplicate and share them with their Action Teams.
·         They invite web site visitors to download Free Cards, updated monthly, to post on women's dressing room mirrors and other places.

  1. Quite an interesting concept. Great! I am going to look further into this project. Thank you for AGAIN, making us aware of some awesome ideas to help people see the images of the heart and not the mirror.
    Happy New Year to all the beauties of the world.
