The I Love Me Foundation

  1. 1. The I Love Me Foundation<br />
  2. 2. Self-Hate<br />Every day millions of young girls wake up literally hating the image that they see in the mirror.<br />The images that they see on T.V. and in magazines all give them a warp idea of what is beautiful and desirable.<br />As early as 10 years old some girls are already thinking about getting plastic surgery because they feel they are unpretty.<br />They believe that less clothes, big boobs, and a tiny waist is the American dream.<br />When really the reality is they ARE beautiful and those images they see are all photoshoped, and edited to sell a product.<br />
  3. 3. Eating Disorders<br />There are between 5-10 million girls who suffer from eating disorders.<br />1 in 100 American women binges & purges to lose weight.<br />According to the National Institute of Mental Health, roughly 1 out of every 25 girls and women will have anorexia in their lifetime. Most will deny that they have an eating disorder.<br />It is estimated that 40% of nine year olds have already dieted and we are beginning to see four and five year olds expressing the need to diet.<br />

Self Injury<br />There’s a horrible cycle that occurs with low self-esteem, and self injury is a start of one.<br />Majority of people who self-injury are women between the ages of 13-30<br />90% of self injurers begin cutting as teenagers.<br />The average self injurer begins at age 14 and continues with increasing severity into her late twenties.<br />Most people who self injure are not trying to commit suicide, instead using self injury as a coping mechanism. <br />More than half of self injurers are victims of abuse, and most report emotionally abusive or neglectful childhoods.<br />
  5. 5. Sexually Abuse<br />1 in 6 women will be sexually assaulted<br />15% of sexual assault & rape victims are under age 12. 29% are between 12-17.<br />46% of rape victims under 12 are with family relatives.<br />
