The Jed Foundation’s Love is Louder movement and Benefit Cosmetics recently teamed up for the Inner Beauty Challenge, a week-long campaign that helped 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.
Participants were given simple tasks to help them laugh, love and live loud. The challenges focused 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, Jed Foundation program director. “We are excited to collaborate with Benefit Cosmetics to empower women, and encourage sharing positive messages and actions.”
