Connecting Individuals through the Power of the Personal Story.

About the Weight of the World Initiative

OAC’s Weight of the World Initiative is a global effort designed to unite individuals through the power of telling personal stories. This unique video collection platform encourages individuals to safely and easily share their real, honest stories about their journey with weight – not only as a form of personal expression, but also to let others know they are not alone. No matter who you are or where you have been, your story can make a positive impact. Please share it with us and be a voice of support to others!

How has your journey with weight shaped your life experiences? What obstacles have you faced or continue to face? What successes have you achieved? We want to hear all of it – from the negative to the positive and everything in between! No fancy equipment is required to submit your story. All you need is a way to create your video (smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc.) and upload it to this platform. By sharing your real, honest stories and experiences, you can be a voice of support to someone else.
