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 2,500 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.
