The line-up for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust concert series is incredible – with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Suede and The Cure giving their time and talent to support this very special charity. The event is, of course, about having a good time and watching your favourite artist, but it is also about something bigger – raising awareness and funds for specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units and services that will help give young people with cancer the support and treatment they need, where they are treated as young people first and cancer patients second.
One of The Body Shop’s core values is Activate Self Esteem, and this underpins all of the work we have been doing with Teenage Cancer Trust over the past year and a bit. Self-esteem is something that can easily take a nosedive during illness. A big part of the charity’s work is to offer young patients psychological support, as well as treating the cancer itself by bringing them together to be treated in a place where they can feel comfortable and behave like normal teenagers.
Join the #SelfiEsteem Wall of Fame & Win
This week at the concerts, we’re asking people to think about how they activate their own self esteem, and other people’s. In Olivia’s recent blog post, she recommended different ways to give yourself a boost, one of which was to talk to yourself in the mirror and big yourself up! We’re taking this a step further and asking you to talk to your phone camera and pull a feel-good face at yourself, then share it with us on Twitter or Instagram using #SelfiEsteem. And for every one we receive, we’ll donate £1* to Teenage Cancer Trust. Your picture will also be featured on #SelfiEsteem walls in Teenage Cancer Trust units across the UK, helping to put a smile on the faces of the young patients and their families.
If that wasn’t enough to give you a warm glow inside, we are also offering some great prizes for one lucky winner, including signed merchandise, a £250 Gift Card for Fairsharemusic.com and a £250 Pamper Hamper from The Body Shop.
* Capped at £10,000. Terms & conditions see thebodyshop.com
