Turn Beauty Inside Out Day: Celebrate Real Beauty,New Moon magazine
In direct response to People's '50 Most Beautiful People' issue New Moon: the Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams has declared May 16 the second annual 'Turn Beauty Inside Out Day.' Last year, the magazine published its '25 Beautiful Girls' feature to support healthy body images and an expanded definition of what makes people beautiful. New Moon's May/June 2001 issue will feature '25 beautiful girls, ages 8-14, who embody our definition of beauty based on good works, great hearts, and activism.' The magazine's website shows readers how they can participate. New Moon is encouraging kids to create their own video, audio, web or print ads depicting positive images of inner beauty. Then New Moon challenges the kids to get their ads played in the local media and to enter them into New Moon's contest. Check out the website to see how you can help destroy the misconception that clear skin and a slim figure define feminine beauty.
