CTWT: Operation Beautiful

This week's feature:

I usually try to pick organizations that truly change the whole world in drastic ways - feeding the hungry, breaking free those in bondage, giving hope to the hopeless... Sometimes I ignore organizations that don't give some sort of physical help.
However, I found Operation Beautiful and I was so impressed.  I thought, these girls really could participate in this!  This is just a lifestyle that we can adopt that really could change the world we live and work and walk in every day.

The main idea:  To end "negative self-talk".  To make people happier.  To use our little effort to make a potentially huge difference in someone's day.

The founder of Operation Beautiful says:
I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. I scribble down whatever comes to mind — "You are beautiful!" or "You are amazing just the way you are!" My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.
Now, people all over the world are participating.  Not only is posting a note with a positive message SO easy, it feels really good.
To do your own note for Operation Beautiful, email seebriderun@gmail.com with a picture of your efforts!  Maybe you can end up on her blog!

PS - Can you believe that this started with a blog?  What could you do with your own blog?  How can you change the world from your computer?

PPS - Thanks for your responses on the poll yesterday.  I look forward to hopefully letting you all join in next week.  If you haven't answered the poll, please do so here!
