When we surveyed teens about whether they’d ever been bullied because of their physical appearance, 90% said yes. So we’ve decided to say a big N-O to bodysnarking. With our new Stamp Out Bodysnarking campaign, we’re taking on the body bullies—and we’re not backing down. Here are three easy ways you can take action today:
1. Post a Stamp Out Bodysnarking badge on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or anywhere else you want people to see it. (right click to save the image you want to share)
2. Take the quiz: Are you a Bodysnark Offender or a Body Image Booster?
3. Stop the negativity by spreading some confidence. What’s your Proud2Bme Moment? Let’s see it!
Bullying is linked to 65% of eating disorders. Bodysnarking is not okay. It’s something we can all live without. These celebs are joining the fight, too!
