PEDAW Campaign Idea: The Sum of All Parts!

Sum of All Parts!

  • Educate participants on
    the thin ideal and how it can be detrimental to our overall body image,
    confidence and self-esteem.
  • Encourage participants
    to identify parts of their bodies that they like, are proud of or are
    happy with for what it allows them to do.
  • Promote the pursuit of
    the healthy-ideal. 
  • Help participants
    realize that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and that healthy looks
    different for everyone. 
Supplies Needed: 
  • Sharpies or dark pens
  • Large piece of butcher
  • Wristbands to give out
  • Anything else you can
    think of!
Event Set Up and Implementation: 
  • Set up the table in a
    place that has a heavy traffic flow.
  • With a dark marker,
    trace an outline of a person(s) with butcher paper. 
  • Hang the piece of
    butcher paper up. Have people write on the butcher paper one thing that
    they like about their bodies from a personal appearance perspective and/or
    one thing they like that their body allows them to do (hug someone, dance,
    play piano, run, etc.). 
  • Explain PEDAW, the
    wristbands, and what it’s all about.
  • Be creative with how
    you want to implement this!
  • Take pictures of event
    and send to Amy to post on up on PEDAW blog!
