John Cusack, Ellen Degeneres, Sugarland and loads of other celebrities are lending their star power to STOMP Out Bullying. The campaign, sponsored by Love Our Children USA, is a series of public service events to raise awareness about bullying in multiple forms. It will be carried out through V spots, videos, posters, brochures and wristbands.
“STOMP Out Bullying brings awareness and educates kids, parents and schools about the issue. It offers hope for every kid who experiences the harmful effects of bullying and teaches parents to keep open communication with their children and to look for signs. It also educates school administrators across the country, who have swept this issue under the rug for too long,” says Ross Ellis, founder and CEO of Love Our Children USA.
Other celebrities lending a hand for STOMP Out Bullying include Demi Lovato, JoJo, Elton John, Bette Midler, Donny and Marie Osmond, and Ashleigh Banfield. Additionally, Dancing With The Stars, Live With Regis and Kelly, The View, truTV, “In The Heights”, and the NJ Nets will also be helping to raise awareness.
1 out of 4 kids in the U.S. are bullied. Want to get involved? Charity Folks is hosting an auction for the campaign, running October 6th – 20th. To learn more, click here.
