Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome to October—a month dedicated to BEAUTY. The world is full of it and we just had to gather it up and share it with you.
Our theme partner—Changing the Face of Beauty— has been a huge source of inspiration. This organization, launched in 2012 by Katie Driscoll, a mother of six, is transforming public perception of people with disabilities (especially children) by advocating for their inclusion in advertising and media. A project that began with a personal appeal to a few individual sellers on Etsy has become a global campaign for acceptance and understanding. And we want you to know more about it.
So, settle in, soak it up and help us shine the light on beauty.
A essay about the founder of Changing the Face of Beauty will also be featured in the upcoming print edition of Mamalode magazine. More of that soon!
