Seventeen Magazine is making huge strides in stomping out online bullying.
It's become really hard to live happily when almost your entire life is posted online, because it makes it easier for bullies to target you and turn you into a victim.
I have dealt with online bullying, and it is NOT fun. It's emotionally draining and your self esteem takes a major hit. Seventeen is making a difference by helping girls learn what to do when they are getting bullied or if a friend is getting bullied.
See below for an excerpt from Seventeen's website about this great campaign!
Seventeen Magazine partnered with Facebook on a survey about online bullying, and it turns out over 54% of you have stood up to someone who has bullied you or someone else online (which is amazing!), but we want to encourage even more girls to get involved!
In addition to deleting any insulting comments or sending supportive messages to friends who have been bullied, pick up this awesome, ombré tee designed by L'Amour by Nanette Lepore! It's only $10 at JCPenney, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying organization.
The shirts will be on sale in mid-March, but you can pre-order one now at jcpenney.com/lamour! Once you've snagged your own [delete] shirt, get inspiration for ways to style it from your favorite celebs!
This campaign certainly is a good one! I've ordered my tee, have you?
Here are some great photos/quotes from celebs regarding online drama.
"Don't listen to what other people's opinions of you are, because they're never going to be satisfied. People will make mean comments. You just have to be comfortable in your own skin." - Ashley Benson
“My advice for girls who are experiencing cyberbullying is don't respond to it. If it gets worse, or if it’s threatening, definitely tell an adult or a teacher and work it out with someone else. Don’t go back down to the bully's level and say mean things behind their backs or gossip about it. Just nip it in the bud and rise above it.” - AnnaSophia Robb
