Diet Book Liberation Front

With the money we raised through International donations (Thank you everyone!) we hit a Los Angeles bookstore to liberate diet books for our Guinness World Record Paper Mache Sculpture.  Here’s how it went down:

This is a project in progress and there are lots of ways to be involved- check it out here!

Paper Mache In a Big Big Way is a Go

Size Diversity Activism, Paper Mâché, and a Guinness Record.  You Know You Wanna Be Part of This!

After hearing about Angela Meadows’ fantastic idea to destroy our old diet books as part of a Size Acceptance revolution, we wanted to join in – in a big way. We can donate our own books, but we can go farther than that – why not liberate diet books from local re-sale shops (local businesses make money, the diet companies don’t) too.  And why not use the books to make a paper mâché sculpture? And not just any paper mâché sculpture, but a size-positive sculpture that breaks the Guinness World Record for paper mâché!

Want to be involved?  Super Awesome!  There are lots of ways:

Send us your old diet books.

Media mail is cheap and we’ll put them to very good use! E-mail us to get the address and send them along.

Donate to our diet book liberation fund.

We’ll use 100% of funds to liberate diet books from re-sale shops, and use 100% of books for our sculpture.
