On the eve of National Bullying Prevention Month, there is no better time to meet Lizzie Velasquez, a brave 26-year-old woman who suffers from rare condition which prevents her from gaining weight and causes accelerated aging.

Lizzie first came under the spotlight at the age of 17, when a YouTube video called her the “world’s ugliest woman". Her brand new documentary tells of her triumphant journey to the other side of online bullying.

A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story premiered this past weekend, find a theater near you: http://imwithlizzie.com/

Today is #MandelaDay! On what would have been Nelson Mandela's 97th birthday, the question we must ask ourselves is: What we are doing to make the world a better place?

Mandela Day actions, no matter how big or small, should consistently focus on the realization or restoration of dignity and empowerment through contributions. The Nelson Mandela Foundation identifies key focus areas that have particular significance: Food Security, Education & Literacy, Shelter & Infrastructure, and Service & Volunteerism

Check out the various ways you can get involved and learn more about Mandela Day:

Julius Rosenwald gave away what today would be almost a billion dollars, making him one of the greatest philanthropists of all time. Joining forces with African American communities, he built 5300 schools whose famous alumni include #MayaAngelou, George Wolfe, #JohnLewis, and Pulitzer Prize winner Eugene Robinson.
