Rhonda saw this ad and didn’t like the message it was sending out… So she stuck an Operation Beautiful note right on the window!

Rachel wrote, “I have been struggling with my body image since the second grade. Now I’m seventeen. I refuse to believe anyone who tells me I’m beautiful or “not fat”. People sometimes I meet randomly tell me I’m beautiful, but I never believe them, because I feel like ‘they feel sorry for this fat girl.’ I have made my mother cry because she hates hearing me speak badly of myself ALL THE TIME. I hit an all time low when a few months ago, I became aware that when I wake up in the morning, I look in the mirror and see every flaw and say ‘you’re disgusting’ to myself. I can’t even tell you how much browsing through the Operation Beautiful site has changed my life. I’ve begun to think more positively of myself, and when I’m on the beach instead of staring at other girls wishing for their perfect legs, or completely flat stomachs, confidence helps me rock my bikini and I’m beginning to feel better than ever. Thank you so much. This really, really means more than you’ll ever know.”

Erica wrote, “ I made a simple "you are beautiful" note and put it up in my work elevator.  I also wrote a little note on one of my dollars -can’t wait to use it and send it out into the world!”

Chelsea wrote, “I saw an Operation Beautiful note at Borders. I smiled :) It was nice to know that someone out there is thinking about making someone else’s day.  This is the most awesome thing I think I have ever heard of. Keep up the good work and keep the message going. The world needs more positivity like this.”
