There are so many of us who need a little encouragement out there… our goal is to remind people they CAN BExtraordinary®. Additionally, we have developed educational programs and products that have meaning and a purpose to encourage people to adopt the I CAN BExtraordinary® attitude, to believe in themselves, and to learn what they need to know so they can be empowered… we believe that EVERYONE CAN BExtraordinary®.
There following are the main components under the BExtraordinary® project:
- I CAN BExtraordinary® events: In September 2014 the Time to Play Foundation produced an I CAN BExtraordinary® Fashion Show to benefit Special Olympics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89JgYkNcX3s). It was an incredibly inspirational event where the message that EVERYONE CAN BExtraordinary® was in the forefront. The goal of the Time to Play Foundation is to have continuous, visible, empowering and participatory I CAN BExtraordinary® events for audiences of all ages that encourage people to recognize that they CAN BExtraorindary®. If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact us.
- Programs, Enjoy life Coaches and Training: Sometimes, with life situations, we all need a little encouragement. As part of this program, we offer resources for building of self-esteem and self-empowerment. Additionally, the Foundation has developed the PreInvent YOUR Life™ program which encourages participants to learn tips and tools in a proactive manner so when situations come up they know how to react in a positive and health way. Topics include how to be happy, healthy, have money and a work life balance. We also desire to train “enjoy life coaches” to conduct empowerment events and exercises that will motivate participants. Anyone interested in this training is welcome to contact us.
- Videos and Interviews: In an effort to create positive contagion and empowerment, interviews will be conducted to highlight personal stories of how an interviewee faced an obstacle and was able to move forward. They will highlight how they are extraordinary and how the viewers can BExtraordinary®. The videos will be displayed on the Foundation’s website.
- Assistance to persons in our society with low self-esteem, depression and/or suicidal ideation, or those who just need a “pick me up”: The idea behind this program is sound, utilizing the inspiration behind the Look Good Feel Better Program, which began in 1989, to improve the self-esteem and quality of life of people undergoing treatment for cancer. It is well recognized that a person undergoing cancer treatment experiences changes to their appearance which can cause them to be self-conscious and socially isolated. The Look Good Feel Better Program has been proven to improve a cancer patient’s self-image.BExtraordinary® is a makeup and unisex fragrance line developed with the intention to reinforce the message that every person CAN BExtraordinary®. This cosmessage™ (cosmetic with a message), is intended to be a trigger to recognize the ability for an individual to make a choice for change and provide a positive reminder of self-esteem, self-confidence, self-empowerment and self-worth. The goal is that every time a person looks at the message of BExtraordinary® they can find the power within to move forward so they can enjoy life.Events can be sponsored where participants can attend free of charge.In an effort to provide revenue to fund the Time to Play Foundation’s programs and good works, The BExtraordinary® product line may also be purchased.
