SHAPE recently launched the “Love My SHAPE” body-confidence campaign dedicated to celebrating women of all shapes and sizes. To further support body-positive initiatives that make an impact, SHAPE has partnered with Movemeant Foundation on the SHAPE Body Shop series of events. The nonprofit, community-powered organization inspires young women to be confident in their bodies through mentorship, engaging content about health, nutrition and well-being, and financial grants that make fitness and physical movement a reality.
All ticket proceeds from the SHAPE Body Shop events will benefit Movemeant Foundation. For those unable to attend the events in Los Angeles and New York, or who want to continue the body-positivity momentum, SHAPE is kicking off a grassroots movement encouraging supporters to create or join fundraising teams to raise money for Movemeant Foundation on their own. SHAPE will also be supporting local SHAPE Body Shop events at studios and gyms across the country.
