#cyberbullying | #cyberbully | Shaun Robinson Hosts TLC’s GIVE A LITTLE Initiative

The anti-bullying initiative goes virtual October 19th.

TLC’s fourth annual GIVE A LITTLE event, presented in partnership with Love Is Louder, a project of The Jed Foundation, will go virtual this year with a panel discussion featuring past honorees on October 19, 2020 at 2pm ET. The initiative seeks to replace bullying and hate with positivity and kindness, and emphasizes the impact of giving time, support and compassion. Hosted by Shaun Robinson (host of 90 DAY FIANCÉ TELL ALLS), the panel will cover topics related to the heightened events of 2020, including the Black Lives Matter movement, the effects of the pandemic, and how current events have impacted each honoree on the panel. Actress, entrepreneur, activist and model Selita Ebanks will also join the panel. She is an advocate for women’s issues, child development and poverty alleviation, and is launching The GOODLOOK next year, a Black-owned media platform committed to empowering bold women from all backgrounds.

“The TLC brand celebrates a diverse set of lifestyles and beliefs, and since the ‘Give a Little” campaign launch in 2017, we have remained steadfastly committed to taking a stand against bullying of all forms,” said TLC President and General Manager Howard Lee. “We know that being bullied is all too common an experience in the lives of so many. With ‘Give A Little,’ we seek to drown out bullying and hate with positivity and kindness.”

GIVE A LITTLE is TLC’s national, multiplatform campaign that encourages people to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need through the simple, but transformative acts of giving a little time, support and compassion. As with previous years, this year’s event will still shine a light on advocates working to eradicate bullying for future generations.
