“I have experienced bullying…it’s important to me to use my voice.”
Jacob Sartorius has always said his goal is to make a difference in the world, and he’s doing just that: The singer and social media star has partnered up with an anti-bullying organization called Be Strong and will work with students to combat this huge health and safety issue. As the celeb ambassador for the cause, Jacob will be promoting kindness and positivity on his current tour stops – and raising funds to support the charity’s work to make classrooms safer.
“Like many of my fans, I have also experienced some form of bullying therefore it’s important to me to use my voice in support of the fight against social injustice,” says Jacob.
“I have always tried to spread positivity with everything I do and now in partnership with Be Strong I can continue to help with great work that they have done to spread the message of empowerment,” he explains.
The brand is already impressed with how Jacob is using his platform to make change.
“We are especially excited that he is not only partnering to make a significant impact but that he is also making a personal donation,” a Be Strong spokesperson shared. “It is rare to come across a young man who is so clear on issues that matter and who is determined to make a significant and positive impact. We believe that people of all ages, and especially young people, will be inspired by Jacob speaking up against bullying and spreading the word about Be Strong its mission and its unique and proven approach to helping people of all ages deal with bullying.”
