GIRLS' SELF ESTEEM
The iPad offers apps for babies to use all by themselves. Technology, computers, the Internet—these are all increasingly more essential in the life of a Millennial. We all know, along with the transference of information, the Internet is also a swarming beehive of ads; ads that encourage—both explicitly and implicitly—casual sex, smoking, junk food, and most notoriously, unhealthy body-image.
Over the years, Mr. Bloomberg has combated smoking, unplanned teenage pregnancy, and soda-drinking through emotionally provacotive ads, often ugly, gross or sad. His newest project, which began this Monday, is de-legitimizing professional image-makers who popularize unnatural notions of beauty. The campaign, called NYC Girls Project, essentially tells girls they are all uniquely special and beautiful.
On Monday, April 16th at 6:30pm, join Groove With Me for the seventh annual "Tap & Tapas," a star-studded night of dance and food that raises funds for underprivileged young girls. Guests will enjoy food tastings from some of NYC's most celebrated hotspots, including Scarpetta, The Red Cat, LeBernadin, A Voce, Jacques Torres Chocolates and many more. Foodies will enjoy a tribute to Tom Colicchio, host of Bravo's "Top Chef" and chef/owner of Colicchio & Sons and Craft restaurants.
