As my blog's traffic and audience increased over time, I decided to use this platform to try and provoke a positive influence towards social causes that are important to me. I started to take the opportunity to touch on subjects such as body positivity, domestic violence, sexual abuse, women's health, and the empowerment of latinos/as. As of 2015, The Beauty Milk is visited by around 14,000 individuals each month (from all over the world but mostly the United States and Great Britain). If only a small handful of these individuals were inspired to donate, share or learn about any of the social causes promoted on this blog, I'd feel as if I had used this platform positively.
I stand against rape culture and domestic violence. I stand with Planned Parenthood. I love a family member with autism and am an advocate for their opportunities. I am a feminist and stand for equal rights for women and men.
As a final note, I also donate a small portion of the money made from this blog to organizations that align with causes that are important to me. (Remember to always verify the effectivity and transparency of foundations/charities before you donate. You can use websites such as Charity Navigator and the like.)
