We learn about the history of International Skinny Dip Day and one group who is actively promoting the event through SkinnyDipDay.org. The holiday, celebrated in July, aims to encourage body positivity and self-acceptance by inviting individuals to participate in skinny-dipping experiences. The event has evolved from a National Nude Weekend in 1976 to a seven-day Nude Recreation Week and eventually International Skinny Dip Day. Thomas Francine, inspired by his own transformative journey, created SkinnyDipDay.org to raise funds for the Fistula Foundation while promoting body positivity. The organization facilitates group skinny dips and donations to support life-transforming surgeries for women suffering from obstetric fistula. 🪐
