Boston Company Helps Self-Image Of Young Women

Boston-based retail company USTrendy is engaging in a nationwide campaign to fight cyber bullying and body shaming. Company representatives have traveled throughout the United States, delivering dresses to underprivileged girls and bringing in speakers to talk with them about building a positive body image. So far, USTrendy has donated hundreds of dresses and are on their way to donating a total of 10,000 dresses by the end of 2017. To coincide with the start of the new school year, they will roll out a national mentoring program, which will feature weekly meetings in various cities, as well as online seminars available to girls anywhere. These events will include interactive and open-table discussions where influential women will mentor and have discussions with girls about creating and maintaining a positive body image and about combating and dealing with cyber bullying. In addition, through their BelieveInYourself organization, they will also be providing new 'back to school' clothing for young women. If you would like more information on this effort, visit:
