NATIONAL INNER BEAUTY DAY
National Inner Beauty Day is observed annually on October 7. Everyone has a story, a passion that expresses who we are as individuals. Our strength lies in embracing that story without filtering it through someone else’s definition of beauty. When our core values are reflected on the outside, we have indeed given the world the gift we were born to give.
National Inner Beauty Day and the launching of its 2017-2018 #InnerBeauty Challenge coincides with the opening weekend of the movie, Trafficked. The National Inner Beauty Day team attended the movie’s Los Angeles premiere.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Donate to Saving Innocence to help continue their work with victims of human trafficking. Take the Inner Beauty Challenge.
“Each person taking up the challenge along with their friends, family or anyone else they know is encouraged to give to a charitable anti-human trafficking organization of their choice. The National Human Trafficking Referral Directory of the Polaris Project is a good resource for connecting people to service providers helping victims and survivors. Polaris is a leading nonprofit, nongovernmental organization in this global fight and operates the National Human Trafficking Hotline (1-888-373-7888). Saving Innocence, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization well known for its work in helping victims of trafficking, has been a supporter of the #InnerBeauty Challenge from its inception. Donations can be made directly to Saving Innocence.”

Roma Newton, owner of 6Degrees Management, in partnership with National Day Calendar created National Inner Beauty Day to celebrate exceptional core qualities of the human spirit that we often overlook – inner beauty.
In partnership with Saving Innocence, an organization that helps victims of human trafficking, we aspire to bring beauty and wholeness to a world that may not yet understand its own self-worth. We challenge you to join this cause and add your voice by expressing your #InnerBeauty.
