Self Love Beauty’s (SLB) mission is to educate, invest and impact individuals on the importance of self-love and confidence in order to empower them to be the best version of themselves.
Self Love Beauty was founded in 2012 by Lisa Thompson to promote the confidence needed to build social and emotional skills vital to positive development in individuals. It began as a blog focused on empowering others, supporting people while increasing their feelings of self-love, and helping individuals rise to their fullest potential.
In 2016, they started their Beautiful Me clothing line and in 2018, SLB became a 501(c)(3) organization in order to continue its mission to educate, impact and invest in individuals through evidence-based, age-specific educational programs that focus on the importance of self-love and confidence.
SLB offers a supportive community that helps women and girls thrive, develop a growth-mindset, learn habits to improve their overall wellbeing, listen effectively and understand how to communicate with others. Their inclusive, tiered model bridges the gap in confidence for all generations. Since becoming a nonprofit SLB impacted more than 1,400 individuals in the Great Lakes Bay Region and see an average increase in programs attendees confidence, support and overall wellbeing by 32%. By educating and investing in others, SLB is able to create a ripple effect of positive and sustainable self-change that will impact an entire community.
To be a catalyst in bridging the gap in confidence for individuals of all generations to feel empowered to love themselves and achieve anything they desire.
