Children like Mario are fleeing violence, exploitation, and poverty — and they deserve more. It’s our job to make sure they aren’t forgotten.

Children on the run are blameless victims of events outside of their control. They need our help NOW, before it’s too late.

For our Toy Drive ! We will gladly be accepting new and unwrapped toys ...

Join us for another "i Am Esteem" day worldwide event. Details

November 2, 2013

New to Hike & Seek is Griffith Park, in Los Angeles, California! Located at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, Griffith Park covers 4,210 acres of land, making it one of the largest urban parks in North America. Hiking into the rugged hills and sparsely developed areas is perhaps one of the most popular forms of recreation in Griffith Park. This 1-2 mile trail displays the beautiful landscape of Hollywood, California and features natural chapparal-covered terrain and beautiful landscaped parkland. Please be aware that this trail is comprised of several steep hills and is not stroller/wheelchair accessible. Space is extremely limited—so please be sure to register early!
Griffith Park – Mineral Wells/Amire’s Garden Area
4730 Crystal Springs Drive
Los Angeles, California 90027

The event will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 and will begin at 9 a.m. NOTE: you must arrive between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Participants will be sent out along the trail at staggered times and the whole event will last approximately 3-4 hours. The event is self-paced, so duration depends on participants’ time on the trail.
Support a Hike & Seek participant or team by making a donation today!

Laverne Palmer Scholarship Project
Beauty Within Teen Esteem's Foundation has been working to change the lives of our young people. Our main goal is to become a non-profit organization so that we will be able to reach teens around the world. We have been working here in the United States since 2010.

We need to help people better understand the inhumanity of bigotry, hate, violence, discrimination & bullying in every form, with the idea that once people pay attention to the issue, they will be motivated to address it.

o The suicide rate among 10-to-14-year-olds has risen more than 50 percent in the last 30 years.
o For every suicide, 100 more kids attempt to take their own lives.
o Studies indicate that bullying is linked to 75 percent of school shootings.

Beauty Within-Teen Esteem's Foundation, goal is to deliver much needed discussions, mentors and of course self esteem to as many lives as possible.

What we need to make this possible:

Hire an attorney to handle legal matters
Hire a program director
Hire other teen mentors as needed
Hire a webmaster
Hire a graphic designer
Rent a commercial building with a large warehouse to store food and supplies
Build a safe house
Purchase appliances and furniture
Buy a delivery truck.
Build a playground and after school clubhouse
Hire necessary staff to run the foundation (which would include one driver, one security guard)

We are looking for generous, warm-hearted donors who can make this much-needed project a reality. Your help will change and touch the lives of countless children each and every day.
Kids of past generations were taught to watch their language and conduct.
Kids today take social cues from violence in the media, video games that champion blood-and-gore, and reality TV, all of which have normalized raunchy, aggressive behavior.

As we approach getting ready to do a city by city workshop and panels, we can, at the same time, use some of the same resources and contacts (such as engineers, construction workers, etc.) to minimize costs.

Make an in-kind donation or become the main sponsor of this project.

Sponsor benefits include:

A plaque with your name as a sponsor for your home or office, or place it on the exterior of our delivery truck.
Worldwide press releases and a press conference at the beginning of the project with another one upon completion.
A step repeat banner with your logo on all promotional material.
A permanent placement of your logo on the Beauty Within -Teen Esteem's Foundation website with a link to your company website.

'What’s a real man?'

In the days since Martin left the Dolphins’ training complex in disgust over what he said was continuous and over-the-top hazing by Incognito and others, America has found itself in a debate over the definition of modern manhood, pitting the primacy of old warrior codes against evolving social expectations around bullying and cruel joshing. As the NFL probes the Dolphins’ locker room culture and, more broadly, the league’s views on hazing, the incident has reverberated across the country, at a time when basketball, European soccer, and now American football have become embroiled in controversies around cultural, racial, and gender sensitivities. Many have rushed to Incognito’s defense, blaming Martin for failing to resolve the matter inside the locker room, and for not just punching back twice as hard at Incognito to assert dominance.
“If Incognito did offend him racially, that's something you have to handle as a man!” one anonymous NFL-er told Sport Illustrated’s Ji…
