Debby Ryan is using her voice and star power for more good again, this time with Mary Kay and their Don’t Look Away program.
Don’t Look Away is the company’s initiative which brings awareness to dating violence, an epidemic that impacts one in three young people today.
Debby will be traveling across the country to help educate teens and young adults on healthy relationships, how to recognize the signs of dating abuse and raise awareness of support services.
JJJ caught up with Debby, 22, about the program and found out just why it’s super important to be a part of. Check it:
JJJ: Why have you partnered up with Mary Kay for Don’t Look Away
Debby Ryan: I personally know and have heard about how alone you feel when you’re a part of a bad relationship and how unfortunate it really is, especially when you’re silent about it. I believe in Mary Kay and the program where it teaches that every one deserves a safe and healthy relationship, which makes you stronger and better, which makes you the best version of yourself and feel loved and taken care of and empowered. I just want everyone to know about the women’s side of a healthy relationship.
JJJ: Tell us more about the program
DR: What’s cool about this program is that not only does it have shelter programs, education and prevention efforts, but they also power the nations’s first and only text for help service. This is my favorite part of the program where hundreds of young people can text questions, urgency and more.
