Last week we sent out a reader survey to all of our subscribers and shop customers. An overwhelming amount of you responded and shared your voice with us, for which we are so glad and incredibly grateful.
Therefore, since we got to know so many of you, we here at Darling want to make sure you know us and our true heart behind Darling–to be so much more than a magazine, but actually a powerful movement.
That begins with introducing you to our vision for the new year. When Darling officially began back in 2011, the aim and effort was always to spark a revolution with how society represents women through how women see themselves — building awareness, inspiring courage and developing hope in the individual through the many personas one could have. We developed our mission statement to pave the way for our website and print magazine, however, now that we have those well under way we want to ensure we’re doing more than just writing about Darling, but living out the movement as well.
So what is the #DarlingMovement? It’s our plan of action to get the word out, to get you involved, and to get change happening. It starts with this winter issue. Shipping out today, inside your copy of issue six, you’ll find the Darling Challenge. These are eight ways to foster growth, maturity and refinement in our lives based on the eight personas. The Challenge is the first of many Darling facets we’re developing and hope to bring you in on—leading to Darling talks, dinners, conferences, retreats and so much more–all to build and strengthen the art of being a woman. Creating beauty. Embodying love. Original, exceptional, and here for a purpose.
Won’t you join us?
