Social media has become a free target comedy show, one attraction with many hateful words. At a young age developing low- self -esteem could potentially be detrimental to adulthood. Our mission is to empower and inspire plus-size and big and tall individuals to be their best selves through addressing how to overcome body obstacles and developing strong, body-positive advocacy for all.
The Fashionable And Thick Foundation will engage various resources to promote self-confidence and self-love through: annual fashion shows, model boot camps, empowerment photo shoots, mentoring programs, and by showcasing designers that design plus-size fashion. It is our hope that these programs will develop a strong alliance of empowerment to teens and adults who can carry our mission forward to influence others in our community.
The Fashionable And Thick Foundation’s vision is to rid the world of the negative connotations because of one’s size
Esteem: We promote esteem for all plus size individuals, recognizing that to do so we must seek to educate the powers that oppress, marginalize, make invisible, disenfranchise, harass, bully, intimidate, harm, abuse, and/or discriminate against plus size individuals.
Community: We nurture and develop a safe, vital, healthy, and evolving community for all plus size individuals, founded on integrity and collaboration while recognizing and valuing differences and seeking partnerships.
Inclusion: We embrace the full spectrum of plus size experiences, viewpoints, and contributions, celebrating the different nuances and diversity created in the intersections of age, ethnicity, culture, race, disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.
Leadership: We empower innovative leaders who both inspire and are inspired by others as they work together to transform the world in a climate of respect and celebration for all plus size individuals.
Learning: We foster commitment to the life-long learning and development of plus size individuals to improve the quality of life for all members of the plus community.
Respect: We celebrate the value of individuals and we welcome a wide range of opinions and ideas that are grounded in human dignity.
The Fashionable And Thick Foundation provides services to people without discrimination or preference based on size, age, ethnicity, culture, race, disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.
