The Self Love Club is a movement powered by MARY YOUNG and we want you to be a part of it. We believe it’s time to open up the dialogue within our community to focus on self love and acceptance. The club is not us, the club is not purchasing a garment, the club is you and your attitude. Our belief is also expressed by donating $3 from every item sold to Raw Beauty Talks, a non-profit society promoting the mental and physical health of girls and young women by increasing their self-confidence and cultivating positive body image through education in schools, public events, and through media.
We encourage you to create a safe space within your community and friendships to talk openly and honestly about self love. We will continue to share stories of self love online and make a safe space to do so. We encourage you to join the movement by sharing on social using the hashtag #theselfloveclub and empowering others by joining this movement. To continue this movement expect more open conversations from us online and in person with self love events coming in the near future. In the mean time, continue to open up to those close to you, create a safe space and continue loving yourself every step of the way.
To celebrate this movement we hosted an open call in Toronto to find seven women who wanted to share their story with us and as a result, with you. Meet Clark, Olivia, Krizia, Julia, Erica, Jahsway and Ellie - in order of appearance - these brave women spent a day with us talking about their insecurities and confidence, to truly create a space for change. Endless thanks and love goes to each of these women for their honest conversations and we'll be sharing more videos on each one of them so check back regularly!
