After last week’s announcement of our brand new partnership with Free to Be Talks, RAW Beauty Talks is excited to unveil even more news!
Designed for students in grades 6-8, Free To Be empowers boys and girls to reach their full potential by developing media literacy awareness and taking a strengths-based approach to raising self-esteem in youth. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation individuals aged 8-18 years old consume over 7.5 hours of media a day and approximately 50% of boys and girls age 6 – 12 years old are dissatisfied with their bodies. The program, which is taught in 5-sessions by a trained facilitator, reaches kids at a time when they are most vulnerable.
Over the last two years we’ve been working closely with body image researcher, Renae Regehr to develop and test the program in the Lower Mainland. With proven results and impact, we are ready to roll it out into more classrooms this fall. In order to do so, we need your help!
With the help of our generous Community Champions – Eastwood, The Juice Truck, Treloar Physiotherapy Clinic, VONBON, WestStone Group and VancouverMom.ca – we have launched a CrowdRise campaign to raise $10,000 allowing us to send 1,000 students in the Lower Mainland through the program in 2016!
Please help us reach our goal to raise $10,000 by DONATING HERE!
If you’re as passionate as we are about creating a more positive world for the next generation, help us make a difference by telling your own community about this campaign. Your support and encouragement would mean so much to the success of Free to Be and go a long way in helping us reach our goal.
To make things as easy as possible, we’ve even crafted some sample social posts that you can share.
