No matter where you sit politically, it’s always a good time to take a stand for positivity.

This summer, 3 MUSKETEERS® Shine Corp Ambassador Britain Bennett visited Washington D.C. to meet with U.S. Representatives known for cooperating across the aisle. Her mission? Discuss how younger Americans can begin bridging their differences and finding solutions, and share the importance of positivity in building those bridges.

The trip was an outreach of the 3 MUSKETEERS® #ThrowShine campaign we launched to encourage teens to throw shine, instead of shade. Spreading positivity not only creates moments of lightness and joy everyone can appreciate, but it can have a powerful impact.

"The power of positivity can change anyone's life," said Britain, also a Mars Wrigley Confectionery intern. "As a victim of cyber-bullying myself, I saw how reaching out and helping a friend, or stranger, can impact both of us. And working with 3 MUSKETEERS, I hope to share this message with everyone, even someplace unexpected like Capitol Hill."   

Britain met with policymakers from both parties, and while their constituents come from diverse backgrounds and geographies, these lawmakers were inspired by the #ThrowShine message to bring positivity and inclusivity to Capitol Hill politics.

Before and after her meetings, Britain handed out our positively-themed 3 MUSKETEERS® bars near a Capitol Hill metro station. Printed with upbeat wrapper notes like, “You Are Awesome” and “You Make a Difference,” the bars were packaged for the event in boxes featuring inspirational political memos such as, “Unanimously Pass Positivity” and “Say ‘Aye’ for Positivity.” Britain encouraged recipients to share the treats with someone from the opposite political party.

"Britain's message to #ThrowShine and leverage positivity to find solutions resonates not only here on Capitol Hill, but every corner in America," said Tom Reed, U.S. Representative from New York.

No matter which side of the aisle you sit on, here’s a bipartisan movement on which we can all agree: positivity encourages meaningful conversations that can lead to connections and solutions.
