Billboard Beauty Redefined: Our Final 4 Messages!
Our goal for raising enough $$$ for 10 billboards ($2,200) has been met! We are SO excited and so grateful to our many wonderful, generous, amazing supporters who have made this happen! After quickly raising this money, we met with an incredible graphic designer, Logan Sabbe, who is volunteering his time and mad skillz to make us look goooood. This weekend, with Logan’s expertise, we came up with a powerful design idea for each of the billboards – one cohesive format and image idea to represent four different messages. With the help of a talented photographer, Greg Shearer, who has also volunteered his skillz for this project, we will be bringing these ideas to life ASAP! Once we get the $ and the designs to Reagan Outdoor, the billboards will be up on SLC roadsides within 4 weeks of our submission!
By early July, Salt Lake City’s scenic roadside views will be complimented by UPLIFTING messages promoting healthy body image!
With your help, we’ve chosen our favorite and final four messages. They are…
1. You are capable of much more than being looked at.
2. There is more to be than eye candy.
3. Your reflection does not define your worth.
4. When beauty hurts, we’re doing it wrong.
As far as the design work to make these messages really stand out against all their billboard competitors, we’re going to leave that for a big reveal here on the website once we’ve sent it all off to the printer! And we think you’ll like it!
As one final push for donations, we’d like to note that we have enough for 10 billboards, but we have 4 messages to promote. We (Lexie and Lindsay) will be contributing the cost of one more billboard, making 11. We would LOVE to have enough for 12 – making a nice even 3 billboards with each message. If you haven’t already donated or if you might know someone who would be interested in supporting this worthy cause, we would absolutely love your help to raise this last $220 for our final billboard. You can donate through PayPal using the button below, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a mailing address to send a check.
100% of all donations will go to funding billboards.
We will be recognizing our amazing supporters here on the website as soon as these billboards are underway. We are honestly overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing support we’ve received financially and otherwise. We thank you and we love you!

Beauty Redefined is ridiculously excited to announce that we are officially taking Beauty Redefined to the streets! After proving our non-profit status, we have been approved by Reagan Billboards to promote healthy body image as a public service announcement (PSA) on billboards all over our home base, here in Salt Lake City (the “vainest city in the nation”) and surrounding areas!
Since these are PSAs, we can put up as many as we have the money for! The normally exorbitant cost of a billboard has been cut down to the bare production costs – just $220 each board. We have received approval to use billboards anywhere from Logan to St. George, and we would love to represent those cities and others with your financial support!
Please consider donating to support this important effort through our PayPal account (using any major credit card) or by e-mailing us at email@example.com to get our physical mailing address.
100% of donations will go to purchasing billboards. PSA billboards are put up for 4 weeks in areas that are available (not of our choosing), so that means we want to have as many signs as possible to attract attention to our positive message!

WHY we’re doing this:
All over the world, it’s rare to see an advertisement that does anything positive for female body image. But Beauty Redefined is all about the battle to take back “beauty,” and now we’re officially taking that battle to the streets!
We want to help redefine beauty on the roadside by renting several billboards here in our home base of Salt Lake City, which has unfortunately earned the title “Vainest in the Nation.” We will offer one simple uplifting message to promote healthy body image, inviting people to join the battle to redefine beauty for themselves with us at our website. But billboards are expensive, and we need your help! We have set up a PayPal account specifically for this cause, and are welcoming donations in any amount.
By offering one simple sentence telling women reminding women they are worth more than their appearance and offering our website as a resource for empowerment, we hope to offer a positive, uplifting message people will notice. We also hope our billboard will spark some discussion regarding this important cause, since body image and health issues related to harmful beauty ideals are in critical need of attention and awareness. For more information on Beauty Redefined, please see our About Us section and our Home Page, which includes links to several pages detailing our work to take back beauty for girls and women everywhere.
Please share this page far and wide and encourage others to join the battle to take back beauty! If you can’t donate but would still like to help, please share this link on your Facebook and Twitter pages, through e-mail or any other way you can think of!
