The campaign, run by old school friends and now co-directors Ruth Rogers and Natasha Devon, was founded in 2006 and has since grown to astronomic proportions and is seen as a leading voice and organisation for body image, with Co-Director Natasha Devon sitting as the body image expert to several radio stations and television programmes. Having worked with Gok Wan and other high profile celebrities the campaign is rapidly growing and has received endorsements from HRH the Duchess of Cornwall and countless awards, including a Future 100 award and a nomination in the government’s Body Confidence Awards.
With opportunities to sponsor previously unseen celebrity cast videos, the new Body Gossip Book, mini projects and live events, the organisation has devised an exciting sponsorship package which will appeal to business of all sizes who not only wish to support a truly dynamic organisation but gain recognition as being partnered with one of the hottest campaigns in the country.
The organisation to date has achieved so much with very little funding and the pair, along with a team of dedicated volunteers, are ready to take the campaign to the next level. Natasha Devon, Co-director of Body Gossip comments;
"Every day, Ruth and I receive emails from people who have written their stories, attended our events, visited our website or participated in one of our Gossip School classes, telling us how much Body Gossip has enhanced their lives. Everything we have achieved to this point has been done on a shoe string - It's involved Ruth and I putting in more hours than we could ever count free of charge and relying on the goodwill of volunteers. So imagine the impact we could have with a real financial injection! We have proved since 2006 that our passion and dedication is unsurpassed in the field and that the public have and will respond to our various projects. Now we need the money to really bring Body Gossip to life and we look forward to working with companies that have the insight and heart to help us to do so".
It is hoped companies will see the massive potential a partnership with Body Gossip holds and will work with the campaign to create changes in society through what is regarded as an inspirational, emotive campaign.
Notes to Editors.
Body Gossip is a nationwide body image campaign which invites everyone in the UK to write something about their body and send it in. A selection of these are performed by a celebrity cast, both in short films and live events or even published in the new Body Gossip book.
The first ever Body Gossip book is due to be released in September 2012 with entries from the likes of Jermaine Defoe, Alesha Dixon and Gok Wan. They join existing celebrity supporters of Body Gossip such as HRH Duchess of Cornwall, Zaraah Abrahams, Louisa Lytton, Craig Revel-Horwood, Natalie Cassidy and Nikki Grahame.
