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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
