Dove Wants Girls to Know They Are Beautiful and they want to Thank you for Making a Difference!

Unfortunately, due to Facebook policy changes you are no longer able to upload your daughters' videos to the Dove Facebook Fans Page! This is an unfortunate circumstance beyond the control of the company and the Dove Self-Esteem Program! However due to this frustration Dove will still donate to the wonderful girls' charities that participated and will be sending me Self-esteem workbooks and products for review and giveaway opportunities! Remember you may still enter your Dove UPC codes at Dove Self-Esteem Fund Facebook Page to support the Dove Self-esteem fund!
Dove wants to fullfill its commitments to both Girls' Charities and to Northern Mama readers!

Thank you from Dove and myself and stay tuned for more from Dove and the Dove Self-Esteem Foundation!

Previous Post About the contest and UPC donations:

I am a mommy of two girls and because I have suffered from self-esteem issues myself over the years I am aware of the toll not feeling beautiful can take on girls and women!
According to the Dove Self-Esteem Fund, almost three-quarters of mothers with daughters aged 17 and under, like myself, hope they have not passed on feelings of self-doubt or insecurity to their daughters. It's a concern I struggle with daily!

My Beautiful Girls!
Media does not make being a mom of girls today any easier forcing images of beauty into a uniform package! I want my daughters to know that their beauty does not come from a bottle, it is not dependant upon perfection, and is reflected in ways that transcend appearances {tears well up in my eyes as I type this}! I believe so many women including myself have let harm come to them and have limited themselves by not surrounding themselves with the "self-esteem bubble"! Dove is a company that knows this and is working to help more and more girls worldwide form their own "self-esteem bubble" to shield them from the forces in our world that eagerly chip away at their confidence in their personal beauty and worth!

Dove has a mission! Their mission is to reach 5 million girls with their self-esteem programming by 2010! This may seem like a daunting task but Dove has already reached 3.5 million girls globally since 2005 and Dove wants to "Thanks For Making a Difference" to those who have supported their Campaign for Real Beauty.


Visit the Dove Self-Esteem Fund Facebook page and upload a 30 second video of your daughter sharing what she feels makes her beautiful by November 20th, 2009. Your video could be featured on the and websites! But even better, Dove not only invites you to show the difference self esteem makes in your family AND support local self esteem building programs at the same time!

Upload your video then come back here and leave a comment saying you have done so. The top 5 sites with most videos {including the #1 site} will receive a $1000 donation from Dove in their site’s name to the local chapter of a partner charity that builds self esteem! I would be thrilled if one of these donations was made in Northern Mama's name! I hope to post a video of each of my daughters here and on the Dove site shortly.


Finally, Dove also wants to thank you for making a difference when you purchase Dove products. Enter your UPC codes on the Dove Self-Esteem Fund Facebook Page and select a participating charity. Dove will donate $1 from each purchase to inspiring self esteem programs run through your selected charity!

So get those cameras rolling and capture your daughter's star like beauty for the world to see!

And be sure to look for the Self Esteem tools and online workshops also available through Dove's website--great for parents, educators, and program facilitators!
