ABC, Freeform, and Disney Channel are teaming up with celebrities to make an important statement and speak out against bullying. Who better to lead the charge than award-winning TV and Radio personality, Ryan Seacrest and Grammy-winning global superstar, Carrie Underwood?
Together they are teaming up as primary ambassadors of the #ChooseKindess Campaign which celebrates individual differences and calls on audiences to choose kindness over negativity by offering support and love.
Underwood’s new single, “Love Wins” will serve as the anthem for this movement and throughout the month of October, we can expect a series of celebrity-fronted PSAs to support the campaign’s mission.
In addition to the PSAs, several stars offered honest testimonials of their personal experiences with bullying. Stars that will be featured throughout the month will include, Kelly Ripa (“Live With Kelly and Ryan”); Taran Killam (“Single Parents”); Leighton Meester (“Single Parents”); James Roday (“A Million Little Things”); Ron Livingston (“A Million Little Things”); Randall Park (“Fresh Off The Boat”); Nathan Fillion (“The Rookie”); Raven-Symoné (“Raven’s Home”); Issac Ryan Brown (“Raven’s Home,” “Kim Possible”); Sasha Pieterse (“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists”); Janel Parrish (“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists”) and many more.
Want to support the #ChooseKindness campaign? Here are some key dates to note this month:
Thursday, Oct. 18, GLAAD’s “Spirit Day” which encourages supporters to wear purple to stand against bullying and demonstrate support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth.
