Thanks a lot Sharon, I'm glad you like it. The English name is Pass along, Polish - Podaj dalej. And for the description we put some words together (I'm not sure if it's not too long):

Following the example of the impressive Sharon Hodgson's initiative We Bite Back, we have decided to start a similar action in Poland. We are the team of enthusiastic people from all over the country who are ready to run this non-profit site to promote self-acceptance and positive attitudes towards ourselves no matter what size we are. Our beauty comes from the inside and recognizing how we can contribute to the world and to ourselves is much more important than a 'perfect' outfit. We are like messengers of the good news. "Smile. This day belongs to you.", wrote Martyna."Love yourself as you are here and now", put Perfidia.
Some of us are specialists on psychiatry and psychological support, some others are girls and women who have experienced how difficult it is to go through hell of anorexia and bulimia.

Apart from promoting and publishing the Post-It messages we intend to write the series of articles to criticize the consumptionist tendency to base our lives on marketing-aimed sick campaign glorifying skinny models and the need for becoming more and more 'perfect'. We also want to publish the texts on healthy self-acceptance.

There is a part "White Sheep, Black Sheep" where we are going to present the positive and negative examples of actions directed to people, such as Dove promotion of beauty (White Sheep) or Coca Cola Light campaign (Black Sheep)

We hope there will be a real wave of Post It messages in Poland. Keep your fingers crossed for our action and thank you for your support.

Take care!
Ludmila

Do say hello to them even if you don't speak Polish. They were really hoping that WBB would give them a boost and send them some traffic.
