Artists Against Bullying

Oh how I love watching Canadian artists do good.  This video actually made me tear up.   Canadians Jacob Hoggard of Hedley, Lights, Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan, Fefe Dobson, Kardinal Offishall, Alyssa Reid, and Walk Off The Earth teamed up to show their support for the anti-bullying movement and record Cyndi Lauper's classic True Colors.  I absolutely love the original of this song and this new version is amazing.  I think it's important to show that these artists don't stand for bullying and that we don't have to either.
I saw a good quote online yesterday about how some kids learn bullying from their parents.  Just something to think about, kids are listening and observing constantly.  Also, I think everyone deals with bullying, no matter your age, sex, race.  I see bullying in my adult life more than I can believe. If you are being bullied and don't know how to deal with it, tell someone, ask someone, don't be silent.
All proceeds from the sale of this song on iTunes will go to Kids Help Phone. I've already bought it.  Pretty sure it will be on repeat today!
