Whether it’s through the movies they watch, the TV shows they tune in to or the magazines they flip through, tween girls are often seeing what they think are perfect celebrities. Girls and women with no flaws who have achieved perfection. But we know better right? There is no such thing as perfect. We all have some sort of flaw, or difference about us, but that’s what makes the world interesting! Let’s explain and show that to our girls shall we?
Monster High says we shall! They’ve teamed up with WeStopHate’s founder, Emily-Anne Rigal the YouTube “cause-prenerur”, to take Emily-Anne’s online crusade to the halls of Monster High and scream her message of tween-esteem: “Those who are happy with themselves are less likely to put others down”.
For those of you familiar with Monster High and their products, you know they are all about celebrating those individual freaky flaws. It’s those flaws and differences that makes us all perfectly-imperfect, and they want to help spread that message to tween girls. That’s why Monster High has teamed up with WeStopHate and are offering positive messages and downloadable activities for girls via their website Freaky Fab 13. Why 13? Because it’s their lucky number of course!
The campaign kicked off May 13th. Here’s the content you’ll find up until June 13th, when new content will emerge: (We’ll be sure and give you a heads up a couple of days before June 13th to let you know what new content is coming.)
· Monster High FreakyFab13.com Takeover: On May 13th, Monster High fans were introduced to “new student” Emily-Anne and the mission of WeStopHate.org. Now, on www.freakyfab13.com , ghouls are invited to download a series of activities – encouraging a sense of empowerment through some spooktacular fun:

o Love, Yourself Letter: inspired by Rigal’s “Love, Yourself Letters” on WeStopHate.org, this activity encourages girls to write themselves a letter on what makes them uniquely freaky fabulous.
