“Imagine a day dedicated to giving back … around the world, across Canada and in your own community! Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.”

Last year we set out to raise $1,000 for GivingTuesday and we blew through the top of the thermometer and thanks to your generosity we raised $1,100!

Editor’s Note: Our Body Positive Spotlight is a way for us to showcase businesses who promote body positivity through their brand. This time we are featuring Chelsey Luren Portraits. Chelsey has been a part of our Community for over two years, and I recently met up with her after chatting on Instagram. We had a fantastic time discussing body image, eating disorder recovery, and how the media and photography industry (namely: PhotoShop) needs to change. Be sure to check out her links at the end of the interview and show her some love + support! -Lauren Bersaglio
If I can make it, you can too. Please never give up. It’s always darkest before dawn. And believe me; it’s so beautiful to see the sunrise. I’m a survivor, a warrior, a fighter. I’m my own hero.
Instead of hopelessness, I’m filled with positivity and energy and a burning passion to help others achieve the same thing. I no longer have to put on a mask of confidence and false hope, because true joy shines from within me. I’m finally living, and it’s beautiful.
