The Survivor Gene

 

I am so excited to be apart of this year's Blogger Body Calendar project. If you don't know what this is, go check it out. The project was founded by one of my fave ladies, Amy Phillips,  co-created by the coolest mom on the planet Alex, and has and will feature some of the coolest blogger chicks out there, some that I feel proud to call my friends.

I discovered it last year, which was the inaugural year and they were able to raise over $500 for National Eating Disorders Association.

I swear that next year I'll badger them until they give me a spot in the calendar itself, but I am overjoyed to be the first guest poster for the blog.

This year’s theme is: Survivor and Strength.

"To me, above all, women are survivors. They survive domestic abuse, physical, sexual, and mental abuse, and the abuse we sometimes do to ourselves (eating disorders, cutting, etc.). Women survive, and do so beautifully.
This year our participants will show off that survivor strength, not because they are all survivors, but because they all are supporters of every woman who has had to struggle against the violence. All proceeds will go Violence UnSilenced."

Please go read my guest post and subscribe to the blog and, most importantly, put aside a little dough to purchase the calendar!
