My Operation Beautiful for the Day

One of Caitlin's, the founder of Operation Beautiful, biggest personal crusades is ending Fat Talk. If her little blog only does one productive thing, she hopes it helps readers realize how truly toxic fat talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically. She want to reach as many people as possible with her End the Fat Talk message.

Caitlin stumbled upon the Gives Me Hope website, and she was inspired to start her own random act of kindness crusade — Operation Beautiful.

I stumbled upon Caitlin's website and wanted to employ the same idea for ALL women as I have been attacked for being skinny!

Operation Beautiful is simple: all you need is a pen and a piece of paper... I’ve begun leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. I scribble down whatever comes to mind — "You are beautiful!" or "You are amazing just the way you are!"

My goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

If you want to join the mission, send an e-mail to with a photograph of your Operation Beautiful note or a description of your experience, and Caitlin will post it on her blog! If you’d like to be considered for the upcoming Operation Beautiful book, check out the Submissions page.
