Darling magazine

One of my favorite magazines provided an opportunity for people to invest in it through a platform called MicroVentures.

I came across Darling a few years ago when I worked at PCC. What I fell in love with was their mission statement and CEO. The product from there was a given. The content, the aesthetics, even the material/ tactile experience you had holding it.

Darlings Mission: “To improve women’s self-esteem by focusing on character and dignity instead of obsessing on body image.”

Some other things I loved:

They’re intergenerational.

They have a real not retouched policy. Darling never uses Photoshop to alter women’s faces or bodies.

Darling believes in being “fit,” yet sees “thin” in context of the healthiest version of you.
