As soon as I saw the self-esTEEm campaign I knew I had to wear one of the shirts. It’s a fantastic idea, and creates a talking point with other people. I don’t even mind them staring at my chest when I know they want to ask “What does that say?” The answer raises a shared smile and most people wish they could wear one themselves, or certainly know someone else they’d like to buy one for. And it’s not to point the finger at another individual’s vulnerability; the intention is to empower.
At some point in my life (but very early on) I decided that I wasn’t ‘enough’ of anything. I wasn’t pretty enough, smart enough, slim enough, creative enough, likeable enough, able enough. These thoughts plagued me throughout my life, taking me down paths I shouldn’t have been on, leading me away from all of the things I’d ever wanted.
Well, after a little bit of a rethink we decided it would be best to lower the goal again, this time to 20. Surely this can’t fail! We have 17 pledges already and over four days to go before the end of our pledge.
Well, we have 16 days to get 100 pledges towards our t-shirts! This is both exciting and terrifying at the same time, but we are determined that we are going to make a success of this! Please click here to pledge and reserve your shirt or hoodie!
