NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Jed Foundation's Love is Louder movement and Benefit Cosmetics announced today the launch of the Inner Beauty Challenge, a weeklong campaign that helps girls and women kick off 2014 with a focus on what really matters – feeling empowered, confident and connected.
Beginning today and running through Sunday, January 19, participants will be given simple tasks to help them laugh, love and live loud. The challenges will focus on activities like posting positive messages on social media, performing random acts of kindness, making gratitude lists, and working off stress by laughing or dancing.
"The Inner Beauty Challenge is a great example of how small actions can have a big impact on our own emotional health and the people around us," said Jillian Niesley, The Jed Foundation Program Director. "We are excited to collaborate with Benefit Cosmetics to empower women, and encourage sharing positive messages and actions."
