Pretty Faces movie benefiting SheJumps in Saratoga Springs, NY

It’s been nearly a week since our showing of Pretty Faces in Saratoga Springs, NY, to benefit SheJumps, and I’m still riding on the high of it.

Until showtime on Saturday night, I wasn’t sure whether anyone except for me and the 20 friends I forced to attend would make it. So you can imagine my delight as I watched skier-girls of all ages mill into the auditorium. There were women my age looking to get involved with SheJumps, and there were itty bitty girls wearing costumes and great big smiles.

They filled my heart with joy as they stopped by the SheJumps table set up outside the theater, giggling at the girraficorn stickers and filling in the “#IAmSJ” placards with crayons and magic markers.

The “#IAmSJ” hashtag answers the question: What is it about you that embodies the mission of SheJumps, the non-profit that aims to increase the participation of females in outdoor activities? I explained to the girls that it could also answer the questions: Why do you love to play outside? What is it about the outdoors that inspires you? Their answers blew me away.

My favorite one: Because I am confident (in) who I am.

Listening to all the giggles and “oohs” and “aahs” as the movie rolled was just the icing on the cake.

If you haven’t already, please take two minutes to watch the trailer for the movie. I promise it will brighten your day.
