Sugarland Stomp on Bullies
Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush have joined the national campaign to 'Stomp Out Bullying.' The duo will add their voices and images to TV spots, videos, posters, brochures and wristbands promoting the cause. They'll work alongside a host of other celebrities including Elton John, John Cusack, Donny Osmond, Marie Osmond, Demi Lovato, Bette Midler and Ellen DeGeneres to share how to stop children from being bullied.
Bullying affects millions of students, with one out of four kids experiencing it in person and 42 percent while online. In fact, bullying is now at an all time high, with some children tormented to such extreme that they contemplate suicide as an alternative.
'Stomp Out Bullying' is sponsored by Love Our Children USA, an organization that is working aggressively to prevent the issue and to help the kids and teens affected by it. There will also be an auction to take place on Charity Folks beginning October 6, with proceeds going towards bullying and cyber-bullying prevention, education and peer mentoring in schools. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has proclaimed October 5 - 11 as Love Our Children USA's National Bullying Prevention Awareness Week.
