My newest friend and great writing/creativity partner is Bri Goodyear Luginbill, founder of the Go Boldly campaign in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She agreed to guest post below about what she is doing to encourage people to embrace their bodies.
Go Boldly is a positive body image campaign. It first came about as my response to some billboard advertisements I saw along the highways of Grand Rapids. The ads seemed to play off of women’s (and men’s) insecurities as to advertise for plastic surgery. However, Go Boldly has developed into more than a response. My intention is to have it be a positive body image movement that extends past Grand Rapids. So far I have had people contact me from West Virginia to Israel.
