This week, Health Ed will be collaborating with the Sarah Doyle Women’s Center, Women Students at Brown, and Eat, Play, Love for “Celebrate
Every Body Week.” These groups will be hosting different events “to raise awareness about eating disorders and promote positive body image on campus,” according to the event’s website.
Starting today at 9 am until 5 pm, the event’s organizers will be set up in J. Walter Wilson for two of their ongoing events. The first is Operation Beautiful, a cooperative event in which students are encouraged to write positive sticky notes anonymously and leave them around campus for someone else to find. The other, Great Jeans Giveaway, encourages you to donate a pair of jeans (or any other type of clothing) that you don’t feel comfortable in in exchange for a t-shirt. According to Morning Mail, the Operation Beautiful project will only be open today, but the Great Jeans Giveaway will be relocating to the Ratty on a different schedule on Tuesday and Thursday. (Just read Morning Mail, darnit!)
A full list of their events and resources can be found on their website, as well as more detailed descriptions of each event with their scheduled times and locations. If you can’t make any of these, you can just stop by their table in J. Walter Wilson today to find out about different resources available for students and grab some free buttons! Yay!
