the dove self-esteem fund

We don't think that there are many women who haven't felt low self-esteem at one point in their lives.

Even though we talk about beauty products here, the truth is nothing is going to make you feel that you are beautiful...that comes from within.

Sounds easy...but for many, it's hard to believe that you are truly gorgeous.

That's where Dove comes in.

The Dove Self-Esteem Fund recently commissioned Real Girls, Real Pressure: A National Report on the State of Self-Esteem, that reveals there is a self-esteem crisis in this country.

The majority of girls (a whopping seven in ten) feel they do not measure up in some way including their looks, performance in school and relationships.

Most disturbing is that girls with low self-esteem are engaging in harmful and destructive behavior that can leave a lasting imprint on their lives.

In response to the self-esteem crisis, Dove is launching its largest effort yet to bring self-esteem
programming to girls across the country and to encourage everyone to make a difference in the lives of girls. This new initiative is part of the Dove Self-Esteem Fund goal to reach 5 million girls globally by 2010 with self-esteem programming.

Here's a little clip on one of their workshops.
