The celebrity world is full of craziness and ridiculosity, sure, but there’s also a lot of good being done, too. While we’re definitely here to point out the insane-OMG moments, we think it’s important to highlight some of that goodness as well. One of these great endeavors is S.T.A.R. Alliance, which is a recently formed group of actors, musicians, comedians, athletes, television personalities, and members of The Creative Coalition who are making an effort to put an end to bullying!
It’s very important, especially in the age of rampant social media and other technologies, that we’re aware of bullying, all the various forms it can take, and how we as humans can work together to make it less prominent in our society. Never will we be able to totally eliminate the act of bullying, but we sure can work to reduce its far reaching evils!
Recently, The Creative Coalition and WWE announced the launch of the S.T.A.R. Alliance, which endeavors to “use pop culture’s most influential voices to help eradicate the raging bullying epidemic plaguing America’s schools.” According to Robin Bronk, CEO of The Creative Coalition, “We are delighted to partner with WWE to bring these powerful and inspirational voices of the entertainment industry to encourage children to be participatory in standing up to bullies.”
There are many celebs part of this new initiative, including Florida Georgia Line, Train, Flo Rida, Sharon Osbourne, Omar Epps, Chelsea Hightower, Piers Morgan, Pete Wentz, and many more. We’re excited to see all the great work this new team does!
