For more than 15 years, Dove's mission has been to ensure that having a positive experience with beauty is accessible to everyone.
Every one of their products is designed to provide you with the personal care you need to feel beautiful, inside and out.
When you purchase these products (or any Dove product), you will be doing more than just caring for yourself! You will be supporting the Dove Self-Esteem Project, whose mission is to ensure that the next generation of young people grow up feeling confident in their own skin.
Why do young people need this kind of support?
The statistics around self-esteem and body confidence in young women and girls in particular speak to the pressures they face in today's world dominated by social media and celebrity culture.
37% of girls compare themselves to celebrities most of the time.
25% of young American women would rather win a major televised modeling competition than the Nobel Peace Prize.
And, 8 out of 10 girls are so concerned with the way they look that they opt out of important and valuable life activities, from playing sports to going to school or spending time with friends and family.
What has the project accomplished so far?
Goals for the future? By 2030, Dove aims to have helped ¼ billion young people build a more positive body image and be their absolute best selves. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America has partnered with Dove to help deliver Dove Self-Esteem Project body confidence workshops to young people in their clubs across the country!
Join Dove's mission! When you shop at Sam’s Club during the month of September, $1 of every Dove purchase will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America's youth programs and self-esteem education.
