TLC KICKS OFF SECOND ANNUAL "GIVE A LITTLE TLC" CONTEST AND CONTINUES PARTNERSHIP WITH REDBOOK MAGAZINE ON ANTI-BULLYING INITIATIVE
(New York, NY) - TLC has launched and is accepting entries for its second annual GIVE A LITTLE TLC contest, the network's national multiplatform campaign dedicated to empowering individuals to make a difference in the lives of those in need by giving a little time, support and compassion. Presented in partnership with Redbook magazine and Love Is Louder, a project of the Jed Foundation, GIVE A LITTLE TLC aims to raise awareness about bullying prevention and encourage people to sow seeds of kindness in their neighborhoods and communities, while also putting the spotlight on those who are affecting change in a powerful way.
The GIVE A LITTLE contest is open to anyone eighteen (18) years of age or older and applicants can submit themselves or nominate another deserving person as young as thirteen (13) years of age. Each entry requires an original essay of 250 words or less describing the actions and activities that demonstrate one's dedication to engaging, educating, and inspiring others in their community to address bullying. The contest runs through July 24 and submissions will be reviewed based on originality, content, relevance to the theme and sincerity. Winners will receive a $5,000 donation to the bullying prevention program of their choice, their stories will be featured in the October 2018 issue of Redbook magazine and they will be honored at the GIVE A LITTLE Awards ceremony later this year. For more information or to enter the contest, please visit: tlc.com/givealittlecontest. Winners will be notified on or around July 30.
The 2017 GIVE A LITTLE Awards honorees included actress Brittany Snow, activist Monica Lewinsky, TLC stars Dr. Jen Arnold and Bill Klein of THE LITTLE COUPLE and three national contest winners who consistently inspired their communities to address bullying: Natalie Hampton (Sit With Us); Lauren Coaxum (Think Before You Type); and John Halligan (Ryan's Story).
