Nicole Kidman, Willie Mays Help Launch the Respect Challenge

Futures Without Violence

Actors Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Ed Harris, and Gabrielle Union joined baseball legend Willie Mays to help promote “The Respect Challenge” sponsored by the non-profit organization, Futures Without Violence. The celebs all expressed gratitude to the people they credit with teaching them respect, kicking off the contest/online campaign with a 1 minute PSA.
 
Launching today, the Facebook campaign provides everyone with the opportunity to recognize and thank someone who taught them the valuable lesson of respecting themselves and others. And on October 12, fans will be “invited to vote on 10 finalists who have submitted a compelling written note or a video.” Two lucky winners will earn a $10,000 donation to the school or non-profit of their choice. They’ll also receive a VIP trip to New York City to attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
 
“There’s never been a better time for a national conversation about Respect,” stated Esta Soler founder and president of Futures Without Violence. “Whether you’re on the political campaign trail, or just headed back to middle school, let’s stand up to bullies and remind them about Respect.”
