Luanne is our t-shirt winner!! Yay!! If you'd email me your mailing address, I will send you your shirt asap.
I talked a little bit before about Dove and what they are doing as a campaign for girls across the country. Last time I reminded you all of how beautiful YOU are. (Cuz, geez, you're gorgeous!) What I need you to do this time is read the Real Girls, Real Pressure report. It's not very long and honestly it's amazing to me. As I usually work with elementary girls (who are surprisingly already feeling way too much pressure) the crisis isn't quite as apparent as if I were in contact with teens more frequently.
When I was in high school I know I totally felt the need to be better. To be "perfect." To be like everyone else (aka: what the media told me I should be). However, coming 15 years later and looking at our culture now it is so much more prevalent and difficult to be a tween now. The media is much more all-surrounding and impossible to ignore.
read the report and then leave me a comment about something that you didn't know before to be entered to win this book. It's a really good read and a great tool for encouraging yourself, someone else or even for the guys to read. Our brains are seriously ridiculous sometimes with the pressures we allow to be placed on us.
And remember: You are freaking gorgeous. :)
