About Team True Beauty
"Back on January 7th, my friend Morgan and I got really frustrated and upset with a guy on twitter who was preaching 'managed anorexia' and this 'size zero pill'. Well, we were both so upset that we just knew we had to do something, and almost immediately our friend Meriam jumped on board, and since then two good friends, Megan and Kristen have also jumped on board to help us run the campaign. On Saturday the 8th, we created a campaign and a Twitter account to show both women and men everywhere that beauty is more than just what is on the outside, it is about one’s heart and inner beauty! We are also trying to raise awareness about eating disorders. Well, anyways as I am writing this is has been 17 days since we started this campaign and we currently have over 1800 followers on Twitter, with over 100 of them being Celebrities! We also have over 200 followers on Facebook. We are continually growing in both aspects and have a number of secret projects in the works.
Anyways, all of that background on the campaign was to say that through this campaign, my friends and I are making a difference in the world. The very things that I thought were merely a dream a month ago are the actual reality of my life right now. This was something that was just an idea and a dream among two friends, and I don’t think any of us imagined that it would get this huge or gain this much support! I am constantly blown away by the support we have received from family and friends and people who I don’t even know, as well as the countless number of celebrities who have jumped on board to help out with our cause."
