STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- Two campaigns are working to to show women of all sizes are beautiful.

This video, "A Fat Girl Dancing: Talk Dirty to Me (Jason Derulo)" has gone viral.

Meet Lammily, a doll designed with realistic body proportions.

The push is for women to love their bodies the way they are, which is a message that Kirim Roberson wants her two-year-old daughter to grow up knowing.

"We're not all skinny stick figures. Any woman in general should feel comfortable in her own skin and feel beautiful and not have Barbie dolls or models tell them any different," said Robertson.

The maker of the Lammily doll was looking for $95,000 on a crowd-funding website to get his project off the ground.

So far, he has raised more than $370,000.
