Find Beauty Challenge

North of Beautiful

In honor of her latest release North of Beautiful, Justina Chen Headley's Find Beauty Challenge is underway, rgz!

Here's an excerpt:

Tell the world what you find to be Truly Beautiful! Just upload a 90-second video describing what real beauty means to you...and you could win yourself an iTouch! PLUS, for every uploaded video, I'll donate $10 (up to $1,000) to
Global Surgical Outreach, an amazing group that helps kids with cleft lips and palates in the third world.

Get the full details here.

Submissions are coming in. Here's the latest:

If you don't have your own equipment, how about teaming up with classmates at school or asking your local librarian for assistance?

* catch that video on a camera, computer, or phone
* edit it with a program like Windows Moviemaker
* save it to publish
* upload it on youtube
* send your link to north@marthabee.com

Get going, ladies! Can't wait to see your submission. Shoot for that Grand Prize iPod Touch!

readergirlz, rgz, Lorie Ann Grover
