In a joint effort to stop bullying, the makers of Epiduo Gel, the topical prescription medication for acne in patients nine years and over, and Pacer National Bullying Prevention Center, are collaborating with Clinton Sparks, The Mowgli’s and Kylie Morgan in an effort to encourage teens and those affected by bullying to work together with three of today’s top musical artists to turn the pain of bullying into something positive.

The program encourages teens to submit their own experiences with bullying, which can be anything from a picture, a poem or a video. Have you been bullied by siblings, classmates or playmates? Have you been a bully to others; or perhaps both? Submissions are open henceforth until 8/01/14. The three aforementioned artists will gather all the submissions and work together to write a brand-new song inspired by the stories. The song and accompanying music video will be released at the end of September, just in time for National Bullying Awareness Month.

Clinton Sparks, the Grammy award-winning producer, DJ, and recording artist, share’s his story of being a victim of bullying.

The Mowgli's, a California-based band dedicated to spreading a message of hope, positivity and love through their music, shares a similar message.

Kylie Morgan rose to fame with her hit song "Phoebe," based on the true story of a young girl who was bullied so severely that she took her own life.

It seems at one time or another, nearly everyone has experienced bullying, even if it was not known by that term when it occurred, but it is time to eliminate it from everyone’s life and their vocabulary.
