ChristenMichel|Glow Skin Care Partners with Kind Campaign

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 26, 2014

The American Academy of Pediatrics calls cyber bulling the “most common online risk for all teens.” It is a common misconception that boys and teen males are the most dominant types of bullies. It is becoming more apparent than ever that female bullying is just as common as bullying with males.

According to a study by the Pew Research Center, girls are more likely than boys to experience cyber bullying with 38% of online girls report being bullied. In particular, 41% of older girls (15-17) report being bullied- more than any other age or gender group. This trend is alarming especially when it is coupled with non-cyber related bulling.

Some may suggest that being bullied is simply a rite of passage for teenagers and perhaps a way to build character. Unfortunately, research suggests it is just the opposite. Bullying often leads to a breakdown in character for both the bully and the bullied. It can lead to numerous short and life-long problems such as: low self-esteem, depression, academic problems, weight issues, physical ailments, suicide, and more.

Given the apparent limited impact of educational programs on curtailing bullying, a growing group of people are suggesting that kindness is the best antidote to bulling.

Founded by Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson, Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized movement based on the belief that kindness has the power to bring awareness, healing, and end to girl-against-girl bullying.

In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, Paul and Thompson recognized the problem of bullying among girls and decided to do something about it. Both affected by female bullying, the two decided to create a documentary and launch Kind Campaign, which has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. The organization continues to spread its message online and throughout schools and communities across the country.

Christen Michel, the owner of ChristenMichel|Glow skin care line, has partnered with Kind Campaign to help conquer girl-against-girl bulling. All profits from ChristenMichel GlowGrams go directly to Kind Campaign. GlowGrams can be sent to a friend, family member, co-worker, or other as an act of kindness and to show support for kindness. The $ 19 GlowGrams are beautifully packaged and include a Replenished Daily Spritz, personalized note from you, $ 10 gift card, and free shipping.

Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in KINDness, that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against girl “crime”.

UK Band Unsung Lilly Launch Campaign to Inspire Their Listeners to ‘Just Be’ As They Launch the Ground-breaking #JustBeCampaign

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014

UK Band Unsung Lilly Launch Campaign to Inspire Their Listeners to ‘Just Be’

Quirky UK-based soul/pop live music act ‘Unsung Lilly’ have taken a step to encourage their fans to further develop self esteem and self acceptance, by launching their inspirational #JustBeCampaign this week. The band are planning to tour around the USA this Summer, giving their specialized ‘Just Be’ themed music workshops.

“Self Acceptance has definitely been my biggest lesson,” says Sera, one of the vocalists in the band. “Especially being in a band, it puts you right in the firing line of the media. Whilst society is definitely working hard to change its concept of what ‘beauty’ is, its still an every day battle because we get exposed to over 200 unrealistic body images every day via the media, and this leads to us all subconsciously being taught that we are not good enough.”

The band’s message does not just constrict itself to body image issues though. After putting out a blog post on the band’s self penned blog site, fans got involved by sending in videos and emails about their own experiences with self esteem problems.

“Body image came up a lot, but we also had people talking about gender equality, sexuality, cultural upbringing and various forms of bullying,” explains Frankie, the band’s other vocalist and keyboard player. “So we decided to feature all these subjects in our campaign video. We’re really proud of how its turned out – and have already received messages from people saying it inspired them and brought them to tears!”

In the video, the band talk of their own personal experiences with the subject matter. Drummer Wayne, describes how he was scarred as a young 18 month year old baby. “I pulled a pot of tea over me basically,” says Wayne. “Long story short, I was in hospital for 6 months, very nearly didn’t make it, and was scarred all down my left arm, and on pieces of my face and chin. It was really hard as a child growing up, I used to try to hide my scars….but as I got older I realised that actually being different is not something to be afraid of. As soon as I started loving my scars, the better people reacted to them and I think people just love to hear my story of how it all happened.”

“We are really excited about the workshops, and hope to inspire and help people via the power of music!” explains Sera. The workshops will be held in schools, corporations, community centers etc and will focus on developing confidence via songwriting. “We’re going to spend the first half of the workshop telling our own stories about how we have personally struggled with the subject of self acceptance, and encouraging the participants to share their own feelings, and then the second half will be spent writing a song about the subject, as one big group, using music to empower and inspire.”

Help the band fund this project and spread their message to a greater audience. Check out the link and contribute to their goal, or share the video/campaign with as many people as you can to help spread the word.
