I have had many friends including myself suffer from negative views about the our outer appearance. To many young girls and boys, young adults suffer from negative images about themselves. Let’s show them our support at Don’t DIS My Appearance. I will donate $1 to every painted middle finger nail picture posted on my facebook page to the cause plus Share your support and click on the official website.
Outline is direct from their website www.dontdismyappearance.org.au.
Don’t DIS My Appearance is an Australian national awareness and fundraising campaign for the Butterfly Foundation, calling on all Australians to take a stand against a culture of appearance based judgement and negative body image.
Funds raised go towards better prevention, education, treatment and support services to fight eating disorders and the devastating impact they have on sufferers, families and our community.
Join the movement
Paint your middle finger and donate to fight eating disorders
Be part of the Don’t DIS My Appearance campaign by painting your middle fingernails during May and making a donation to the Butterfly Foundation.
You can also get involved by purchasing FABY nail polish (100% of profits made from May sales donated to the cause), engaging in fundraising activities, sharing the campaign message via social media #DISnoBODY and entering the campaign competitions.
Why this is important?
Eating disorders kill more Australians than any other psychiatric illness
We know that negative body image and low self-esteem can be a serious, high risk contributing factor to developing an eating disorder, and that negative body image is often perpetuated by the experience of being judged or shamed about our looks by others as well as ourselves.
Learn more about the negative impact of body shaming, the serious issue of eating disorders, and how The Butterfly Foundation is fighting to save lives.
