WHY DARE TO DREAM?
As everyone knows, we’ve been working hard on bringing to life The Dare to Dream Soirée event and working with several individuals to successfully deliver the vision Genicca has planned.
Kleyra and I chose to take part in this fundraiser because to us #GIVINGBACKISSEXY is all about men and women feeling good about themselves in whatever it is they do. A lot of what is shown in media influences tons of people. We want to help the “Free To Be” program because we understand that youth is depicted as a time of vitality and good health. Promotion and traditional advertising has portrayed both women and men, boys and girls for a long time now. This depiction of the female and male ideal has helped shaped society’s perspectives about beauty and body image. In results, self doubt and negative thoughts is created and rehashed. The FREE TO BE program is powerful because to us it’s a program that encourages and focuses on happy thoughts and building confidence. The programs helps prevent kids from magnifying any unpleasant and counter productive thoughts.
DARE TO DREAM SOIREE PRESENTS…
Genicca Dot Com partners with RAW Beauty Talks to raise funds and awareness in aid of their new program, ‘Free to Be.’ As a community, we will raise funds and awareness for RAW BEAUTY TALKS in aid of their new research-based, positive body image program, “Free To Be”
Launched out of Vancouver and created by body image researcher, Renae Regehr, the “Free To Be” curriculum empowers boys and girls to reach their full potential by developing media literacy, cultivating individual strengths, building resilience to social pressures that impact body image, and nurturing a positive social environment.
This special occasion is a powerful and fabulous evening of community, connection & celebration dedicated to the young professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, educators and leading influencers blazing trails in Vancouver both on and offline.
