We Stand Together Lip Sync Challenge | National Child Abuse Prevention

Apr 22, 2016

The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy (GCCA) announced today the launch of its #WeStandTogether Lip Sync Challenge, an initiative focused on empowering survivors of childhood abuse and their supporters to lend their voices to children who feel like they don’t have one. As its name indicates, the Lip Sync Challenge encourages everyone to raise awareness for the cause by recording themselves lip-syncing a song of support on the musical.ly app and sharing that tune via the hashtag #WeStandTogether. The effort kicked off with a powerful video featuring child actors Owen Vaccaro and Ava Zagoria lip-syncing to Rachel Platten’s current hit “Stand By You.”

The campaign aligns with National Child Abuse Prevention Month, which takes place in April every year.

tell your mom! Trust me I know. There was this one time I downloaded Roblox on my mom's computer. Once she found out, she got SUPER mad at me and banned me from downloading anything without her permission. A few months later, I asked if I could download Roblox again and she said yes. Totally tell your mom it is not worth it to keep a secret, especially from parents.

OMG IT is. It is and please don't disagree when I say it's the most annoying thing ever. Of course I know better than to date online. I don't trust long distance relationships, not even when it comes to friends. Though I like to believe kw keeps us all connected (: But it's possible, and I dislike this fact /: Here I go. Now I have put ideas into people's heads... way to go...
