Keke Palmer Wants To 'Save Our Daughters'

Keke Palmer is ready to put a stop to bullying — of any kind.

The 18-year-old actress has teamed up with Saving Our Daughters to launch a national campaign to help combat the issues of bullying and abuse with young people throughout our nation.

Keke shared her story, saying, “I was a victim of a bully when I was 8 years old, some kids in my class made fun of me because my hair was very curly and hard to manage. I am 18 years old and still, I remember it was painful, to be different, to have an illness like Little Iliss, to be different from the crowd for any reason can make you a target of a bully.”

Little Iliss was Keke‘s good friend and fan, who fought a tough battle against brain cancer and sadly lost. During her fight, Iliss experienced the cruelty of bullying like so many young cancer victims.

Keke added, “I am so pleased to be a part of this anti-bullying campaign and sincerely hope that together we can make a difference.”

Keke will be the exclusive leader for the “Oath Project” where young girls are encouraged to take an oath for anti-bullying. This initiative will launch online via Facebook and Twitter to acquire pledges from 50,000 teens and 250,000 adults to take 8 immediate action steps to prevent bullying.

The pledge initiative will be accompanied by an anti-bullying PSA that will premiere nationally in October during National Bullying Awareness month.

The Saving Our Daughters organization creates the tools to get teen girls discussing key issues and fired up to take the power away from bullying, (cyber, gossip, face-to-face,…), date abuse, hate crimes, school violence, violence against women, and other esteem slayers.
