NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Oil®, the award-winning specialist skincare product that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone, has launched their "Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin" video campaign. The video, made in partnership with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, addresses the life-changing benefits that burn camps, such as Camp Nah Nah Mah run by the University of Utah, and their specialized programming, can offer young burn survivors. For every share of the video, Bio-Oil® will make a $1 donation to The Phoenix Society, the leading national nonprofit organization for burn survivors.
"It's kind of common nature in our society to look at people that look different than we do every day. I think you should walk up to someone that you're staring at that might have a burn injury and say, 'You know what, I noticed you're a burn survivor. Congratulations on surviving something so difficult. You're really doing a great job!'" adds Camp Nah Nah Mah founder and former director Brad Wiggins. "That's what our programming's about for me - it's really about letting survivors discover that it doesn't matter that they're burned and there's nothing that they can't do."
Camp Nah Nah Mah provides campers with the tools they need to help them not only move past their scars but also help them reclaim their bodies and be more comfortable in their own skin through physical activities, such as spending time on the rock wall. Camper Madilynn Flanders tells us about how she tackles the rock wall: "The rock wall is a really hard challenge for me. I try really hard to get to the top. As long as I keep trying, I might get it!"
During the month of October, consumers are being urged to share this documentary video in the hopes of increasing awareness and providing support to other burn survivors. For each share of the video, $1 will be donated to the Phoenix Society for burn survivors (up to $25,000). All funds raised will be presented to the Phoenix Society during the World Burn Congress which begins on October 19th – 22nd in Providence, RI. The Phoenix World Burn Congress is an annual, international conference that brings together over 1,000 burn survivors, their families, caregivers, burn care professionals, and firefighters. "It's important for burn survivors to know they are not alone in their journey. Bio-Oil's goal is to bring more awareness and comfort to the burn survivor community as well as spread the message of positivity to everyone to be comfortable in their skin through this inspiring video," says Gail Roddy, General Manager of Bio-Oil® at Pacific World Inc.
The Burn Survivor video Bio-Oil® produced last year in collaboration with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors received over 3 million views to date and raised nearly $100,000 dollars.
