National Inner Beauty Day is celebrated every year on October 7th. This holiday raises awareness of the pressing issues of present day, such as human trafficking and superficial standards of beauty. It encourages people to embrace their inner values and recognize the beauty of their inner world.
National Inner Beauty Day was founded in 2018. It was intentionally scheduled to coincide with the release of the movie Human Trafficking, which shocked many and encouraged them to take part in the event. Unfortunately, the movie is not fiction – human trafficking is a huge problem with countless victims.
The purpose of the holiday is to draw attention to the inner world of people, which is often overlooked. Media bombards us with the message that we must look a certain way in order to be considered beautiful. The Inner Beauty Challenge team and its supporters reject this standard and want to show that true beauty lies within us.
- 80% of human trafficking cases involve sexual violence.
- 1 million people are trafficked from country to country on the black market.
- Human trafficking ranks 3rd in terms of crime after weapons and drugs.
- Traffickers make $33 billion a year in revenue.
- There are more slaves in the world today than at any time in human history.
