Singer and Songwriter Mary Lambert announced on her blog yesterday (4/15) that she has launched The Body Love Campaign in conjunction with her new Body Love video premiere. The campaign will be a lead-in to the video premiere next Tuesday, 4/22.
Each day this week, Mary will share a body part of hers that she embraces and why she loves it. You can join in with her on Instagram with your own photo, hashtags and a description expressing why you love that body part. Your picture will automatically be displayed on the official Body Love Campaign website. Mary shared on her blog what inspired her to start this campaign:
“Your empowerment and strength can be a tool for others. I believe we can build each other up. I think self love is one of the most important and potentially culture-shifting movements that is happening and can be propelled. I was inspired by Denise Jolly’s “Be Beautiful”project, and Sonya Renee’s “The Body is Not an Apology” movement.”
She began the campaign yesterday with an image of her hair, saying:
“I love my reddish/brownish hair that sometimes I dye and sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I don’t have time to wash it and it gets hella dirty and gross and the hair stylist looks at me like I’m trying to get white girl dreads. I put it in a bun on my head! I wear a headband and look like a soccer mom! I side-pony it! I let it curl naturally! I put bandanas in it, who cares? I love it. #LoveMyHair. #BodyLove.”
