Saturday, November 11, 2017, was a great day to love the skin you are in, and we are so thankful for each and every one who attended our third ‘Love The Skin You Are In’ Family Day! We were thrilled to have nearly 50 participants and 25 volunteers join us for all the fun! We gathered on a perfectly sunny fall day at The Health Museum which was a great venue for our event. We started off the day hearing from our amazing friend, Rick Guidotti of Positive Exposure. He inspired us with his stories and made us all smile with his encouraging words as we modeled for his camera. We are so grateful that he is using his talents and passion to make the world a better place!

The day was also jam-packed with tons of fun camp can-do activities like our canoe-hula hoop team building activity, our affirmations mirror craft and our fishing for questions game. But the activity of the day was the bungee trampoline from Moraga Party Rentals. So much fun! Not to mention the great food from James Coney Island including cotton candy and an afternoon treat of smores! To end the day, we had our panel of experts share a bit about themselves and their story. Ally, Jose, Stephanie and Zach were so kind to share their personal highs and lows and what has helped them love the skin they are in. It touched our hearts and we couldn’t be more grateful for each one of them who is truly beautiful inside and out. Ending the day with “The World’s Greatest” is one of our favorite traditions. We all left with our souls full and loving the skin we are in! We hope that all who were involved keep shining their light for all to see!

Here are a few comments from some of those who attended:

“Truly a day we won’t forget. Thank you so much for giving your time, energy, and resources to create a day that so many benefit from- we left feeling uplifted, encouraged and hopeful.”
“We had so much fun!! Thank you for all you do!”
“Just learned so much about other skin disorders. Most of all met so many wonderful people.”
“It was great to socialize and meet other families.”
“I just loved how everyone made you feel like family. There was so much love in the atmosphere.”
