Having a little girl may seem like sunshine and puppies all the time to her but as a parent I worry about her self-esteem as she grows older. I want her to be a strong woman and to learn that it doesn’t take boys or makeup to make us strong. Though, you also have to have confidence and make your own destiny.
I did have self-esteem issues, especially in junior high. I was the new girl in class and not the best looking compared to other girls in my opinion. Looking back, I know now that it was okay that I didn’t wear makeup or have the best clothes. I was being me and that was what is important, even now.
I think it’s great that Dove and Kroger are partnering for the #GirlsUnstoppable campaign. What is #GirlsUnstoppable? Dove started a Self-Esteem Project that uses self-esteem building programs to help reach 15 million girls by 2015. Reaching their full potential is so important to Dove that proceeds from EVERY purchase goes to girls across the country. Don’t let your girl(s) stop doing what they love!
Dove has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club, Girls Scouts and Girls Inc. in its mission to help girls reach their full potential. Each time you buy Dove at Kroger, your purchase helps provide self-esteem programs for girls across the country. Dove has reached more than 11 million girls so far, and with your help, they can reach their target of 15 million by 2015. Together, with your contribution, we can make all girls unstoppable.
