What steps were taken to plan this program?
The planning committee brainstormed on ideas and decided to do a sisterhood fold that incorporated something with inner beauty. I found Operation Beautiful and contacted the local abused women’s shelter and see ways we could help out. Then we thought of ideas to do for stations, and finalized it by writing a script and setting exact dates/times. (Making it official by creating a fb event, reminders in emails, and putting in on dashboard)
If the program incorporates multiple folds, which fold (if any) is the focus on?
This program is a 6-fold program that incorporates all aspects of fold types, but mainly focuses on Social Action and Sisterhood.

What is the purpose of the program?
What do you want members to get out of it?
The purpose of the program is to educate our members on what the true meaning of beauty is as a BBG, and show them the importance of sisterhood.

Hello lovely members of Pearl BBG! This program will incorporate the six fold types: Jewish Heritage, Social Action, Community Service, Sisterhood, Creativity, and Recreation. This fold is about Operation Beautiful: an organization dedicated to end negative self-talk, and make women feel positive about the way they look. As a chapter we will be splitting up into two stations. One station will be writing letters to the Abused Women of Memphis Shelter and discussing what beauty truly means, and the other will be playing an identity sherades game and discussing stereotypes. Afterwards we will come together as a chapter to watch the Operation Beautiful video and writing notes to place around the JCC. This fold can truly be meaningful if you participate and have fun with it! Enjoy!

Women Shelter Intro:
Today we are going to be making cards for abused women of Memphis. This is a really important project because these women have gone through what may be unimaginable for us: they have been physically abused. Now these women are on the journey to find their inner beauty and stick up for who they really are. To help  we will be encouraging them by writing inspirational cards to boost their confidence that say things like “you’re beautiful just the way you are.” Though writing a short and sweet card may not seem so big to you, you are making a huge impact on these strong women’s lives, so please take a moment to think about how much this means to them.

Have you ever thought you were ugly?
Have you ever judged another girl, even a friend, by her looks, her outfit, or how she did her hair?
Have you ever changed your appearance to fit in?
Have you ever been excluded from a clique? Or even worse, a part of one?
Do you act differently around certain people?

If you answered yes to any of these questions always remember:
Beauty is being different.
Beauty is standing out.
Beauty is being a B’nai Brith Girl.
Beauty is respecting yourself and others.
Beauty is on the inside.
Beauty is how you act.
Beauty is being you.

JCC- Now you must wondering what we are doing at the JCC with our Operation Beautiful notes. Well, we are going to go one step further and post our notes all around the JCC: in the bathrooms, in the gym, on doors, and show that we, Pearl BBGS, want to but an end to negative girl talk. We are all beautiful here, and we all deserve to know that.
End of program: Thank you all for participating and making this fold a success! Is there any feedback on the program? What did you like, dislike? Ways for improvement, or ideas on how to make the next fold even better?
