The Jed Foundation's Love is Louder movement and Benefit Cosmetics have teamed up for the Inner Beauty Challenge, a weeklong campaign that helps girls and women kick off 2014 with a focus on what really matters: feeling empowered, confident and connected.
Love is Louder helps individuals, communities, schools and organizations launch programs, clubs and events that tackle issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression.
Through Jan. 19, participants will be given simple tasks to help them laugh, love and live loud. The challenges will focus on activities like posting positive messages on social media, performing random acts of kindness, making gratitude lists, and working off stress by laughing or dancing.
"The Inner Beauty Challenge is a great example of how small actions can have a big impact on our own emotional health and the people around us," said Jillian Niesley, The Jed Foundation program director. "We are excited to collaborate with Benefit Cosmetics to empower women, and encourage sharing positive messages and actions."
The Love is Louder movement is a project of The Jed Foundation to help people and communities feel more connected, supported and empowered. Since the movement was launched in 2013 with co-founder Brittany Snow and MTV, people from around the world have come together to amplify the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down.
