BACKGROUND
What would the world look like if everyone felt comfortable and safe in their own skin? We are Elisa & Lily, a mother and daughter on a mission to build this world! Our platform, StyleLikeU, tears down our culture’s exclusive standards of beauty and inspires self-acceptance through personal style.

Most of you probably know us from “The What’s Underneath Project,” a series of docu-style video portraits where role models of all ages, races, body types, genders and abilities remove layers of clothing while sharing radically honest, cathartic stories about style, self-image, and identity.

Through the power of each person who has participated, watched, shared our videos, or donated to our Kickstarter campaign, What’s Underneath now has over 75 million views without a dollar spent on marketing. As a result, people from all corners of the world have written us, sharing how the videos have supported them in accepting themselves and others, overcoming eating disorders, feeling safe to express their authentic genders and sexualities, breaking free of the binds of ageism and racism, feeling less alone in their struggles with mental health, and so much more!

Because of you, StyleLikeU has transformed into a global movement, connecting people through the healing power of vulnerability, truth-sharing and the unshakeable bravery to be yourself. It’s also given us a window into how many lives we could affect if we had the resources to harness the full potential of this community, reaching more people across the world with the transformative power of acceptance.


JOIN US ON PATREON (See video to understand how it works)
Every video we create is a labor of love that takes thousands of dollars, hundreds of hours, and a dedicated, hardworking team to produce. That being said, it has been a challenge to find sponsors for our work who don’t seek to control our casting or censor our interviews. We are open to partnering with companies who won’t threaten to water down our message, but in order to be selective and maintain our integrity while expanding our vision for StyleLikeU, we need YOU.

By joining us on Patreon, you will be the foundation of this movement, playing a critical role in our ability to capture stories of acceptance in new cities across the world. With you, we will expand The What’s Underneath Project, relaunch our original Closet series (inspiring people to get dressed as an act of self-love), launch new shows, record more seasons of our podcast, and host What’s Underneath open-call events along the way.

By becoming a patron of our work, you pledge a monthly amount of money beginning at $2/month. Patrons at all levels get access to our Patron-only feed, where we will let you in on our behind-the-scenes journey, free of the algorithms of Facebook and Instagram. From the conception of new projects to casting incredible new individuals to feature, to the transformative experiences we have during our interviews, to our own journeys with self-acceptance, we will share the highs and lows of it all. Those who can join us at higher levels are supporting those who cannot afford to join in creating the future of this movement.

So, if even one video or piece of content has opened your eyes or been transformative on your own journey towards acceptance, we hope you’ll consider joining us on Patreon so that together, we can influence generations towards acceptance, healing many of the world's most pressing issues at their core.

We are so grateful to you all for being with us on this journey and we can’t wait to share in this next chapter with you.

With warmth and love,
Elisa and Lily

Goals
239 of 500 patrons
Help us create more radically honest content for you! To paint a picture of the significance of this milestone, this amount of funding per year is the equivalent of:
  • The cost of editing 25 new episodes of The What’s Underneath Project or our Closet Series.
  • The full production costs of half of a season of The What’s Underneath Project or our Closet Series.
  • Our travel costs for expanding The What’s Underneath Project to two new international cities.
