Talking Kappa Delta joins the Dove Campaign

Hey All!!

I just got a very exciting email today!!

Kappa Delta sorority has decided to join forces with Dove to help take part in their Real Beauty campaign. Kappa Delta's efforts with both the Girl Scout's of America and Prevent Child Abuse America has led them to joining Dove in an effort to help improve the self esteem or girls across the united states.


Dove is airing their new commercial during the super bowl. The article below is their press release and they mention their new involvement in Kappa Delta.

I am so happy, I have been a huge fan of the Dove campaign for real beauty and I am so proud that my organization is taking part in it. I'm hope this is a first step and other national sororities will join in this campaign and help bring an end to the underfed stereotypes that many young girls and older girls believe they need to achieve.

Is this the ad where they put a fat chick up and Dove talks about their cellulite cream?

As soon as I read the first post I thought "I'm sure Rudey will comment on this."

You're getting too predictable dude, you need to change it up a bit.

Yeah I didn't even bat an eye when I saw his response. I figured posts that actually mattered would come soon enough

Only because it's the Dove ad. I don't usually make fun of fat chicks. I love them and they love me. Actually I am pretty damn happy that I don't have to see it everywhere anymore.

The Dove ads bother me because they're saying that different body types are beautiful, but buy our anti-cellulite cream so that your "different" body type will not have lumpy thighs. If they were just using this ad campaign to sell lotion so that your skin wouldn't be dry, that would be one thing, but they're using it to sell you a cream to make your thighs nice and smooth like the models in the retouched photos. If we can be proud of our less than perfect figures, why can't we be proud of our cellulite? (Not that I have any

I don't want to take away from KD's participation in a worthwhile effort to make girls accept their bodies. I'm just saying that Dove should be consistent.

Well what is a mosturizing lotion for? to make your skin richer and softer and smoother it's just as cosmetic as cellulite cream, you don't see any model's with dry patches on their skin either. No matter what size of a women you are you want to make your body look and feel good. I have a sister who is a size three in the waist, but due to the size or her butt she has to buy pants a bigger size and have the waist taken in. She loves her butt and is proud of it but she still keeps it in shape. Just like you can have bigger thighs and be proud of them. Dove isn't condoning an unhealthly life style or saying "you shouldn't work out or eat healthy cause who cares you're beautiful." They're just trying to show that beauty does come in all shapes and sizes and you should love your body and take care of it, not despise it because it doesn't look like lindsay lohan's or whatever actress is currently on the anorexic track

Rudey,

Don't you know "more bounce, to the ounce..."

You said you wanted game... Then what's your problem?

--Just think working with Dove and improving self esteem for girls is a wonderful thing. Good going Kappa Delta!
