It’s Time to Make a Difference Again!

One of the Miss Teen Canada-World delegates, Vanessa Peynenburg, has decided to take her experience with the pageant and make it a global campaign with the primary message being “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”.

I myself have never followed the crowd, and have always been my own person. This is why I am highly recommending everyone to be involved in this!

Whose on Board?

 Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan, Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat of All Time Low, Eric Solomon, Rob Dyer of Skate4Cancer, and Ulf of Ace of Base have all decided to be a part of this campaign and it is time to add your name to the list! Below are the instructions on how you to can become involved!

Make a Video/Take a Picture with this Message!

“Hi, I’m _________, and I challenge you to be your own kind of beautiful.” Once there are enough submissions, Vanessa will create one video montage with all of your messages. If you have a message that you would like to record on top of that, whether it is about eating disorders, self image, the media, or anything relevant, you are free to do that as well. All submissions, whether they are text, pictures, or videos are to be sent to [email protected]

Updates to follow! Check out Vanessa’s blog to learn more in the meantime!

Miss Teen Canada-World Delegates Visit Free The Children!

On Thursday, August 18 some of the Miss Teen Canada-World delegates had the opportunity to visit the offices of Free the Children in Toronto, Ontario to learn more about the charity and the work that goes on behind the scenes!

What We Learned

A lot of work goes into to everything that the charity does. There are various offices that deal with specific things such as corporate fundraising, funraising through schools, to even events such as “We Day” taking place this September. I took notice when they mentioned that one of their goals is to empower youth and those who want to make a difference in their communities and around the world.

The Me to We Store

One of the places we got to visit was the Free the Children “Me to We” stores. The charity has put together a clothing line to raise money and awareness about what they do. The Miss Teen Canada-World delegates each received a Me to We style shirt at the 2011 national pageant, and those who visited the store were also given another. Thank you very much for doing that!
