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.
