Women opt not to wear makeup to work

Organization promoting self-confidence asking women to go makeup free.

You may notice some women not wearing makeup at work on Friday. This is all part of a project from the organization Girls on the Run, asking women to show off their natural beauty.

Organization leader Lindsay Mckibben says, â??[this project] helps celebrate women that are influential in the community and highlight their beauty by talking photos of them displaying them with no makeup.â??

Jeremy Baumhower joined with Girls on the Run to create a platform where women can post these makeup free photos. #thisismeToledo has posts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and Baumhower expects the number of post to grow with each share, like and retweet.

Girls on the Run serves 158 girls in Wood and Lucas County Schools but organizers hope to add more students by the fall.
