Patxi’s Pizza Fundraiser!

Tuesday, November 25th - all day long!
Location: Patxi’s Pizza at Hayes Valley

511 Hayes Street

On Tuesday, November 25th, Patxi’s Pizza is generously donating 10% of the entire day’s sales including dine-in, carry-out, delivery and catering from Patxi’s Hayes Valley location to About-Face! Easy as that – eat delicious pizza, and help fund About-Face’s media-literacy programs for girls in the Bay Area.

Stop by anytime during the day or night for a meal with family or friends, or stay home and get delivery or take-out! Hope to see you there!

You Are #MoreThanBeautiful!

Sunday, November 30th - 10am to 4pm
Location: Union Square, San Francisco, CA

Women and young girls receive messages from the media that the most important things to care about are how you look and how sexually available you are — but you can’t be what you can’t see!

If you’re told that your only options are to be beautiful or sexy, what are the odds that you’ll think you can be anything else?

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

Join About-Face on Sunday, November 30th from 10am to 4pm at Union Square to be featured on your own magazine cover! Women and girls can aspire to be more than just a pretty face or a hot body — their educational, athletic and other awesome achievements and goals are worthy of attention too. You’re #MoreThanBeautiful!

We need volunteers to pass out information and help people make their magazine cover. Interested in volunteering during the event? E-mail iwanttovolunteer@about-face.org for more details.

Keep an eye out for more updates on #MoreThanBeautiful on our Facebook and Twitter. Hope you see you there!
