Today is the VERY LAST DAY to get your video submissions in to me! Speak out for survivors of sexual assail and domestic violence now! Above is a submission I got from an amazing friend so you have an example of what I’m looking for :)
Make a 10-30 second video of yourself saying:
a) What you would like to tell survivors of sexual assault and/or domestic violence. For example, do you want to tell them that they are not alone? Is there a piece of wisdom you would like to share to survivors? Is there a quote that has been impactful to you and you would like to share it with others?
Please speak loud and clear as to make sure your voice will be heard in the video. If you have any Joyful Heart Foundation or No More gear you would like to wear during the video, please do so! This video is being put together to send to The Ellen Show, but the inspiration comes from Joyful Heart and No More and they will be a significant factor in the video.
b) If you are uncomfortable speaking on camera, you also have the option of writing your message on cue cards and take a video of just the cards being flipped one by one so people can read them.
Please keep in mind that this video is being put together for my Ellen Show project, therefore, once this video is completed, I WILL be sending it to the Ellen Show and when that happens, all rights of the video will be sole property of the Ellen Show staff (See ‘The Ellen Show’ disclaimer below). Also, please note, as stated in the disclaimer below, you must be 18 years or older in order to participate.
The deadline for the video submissions is March 5th, 2014
If you submit your video, but later decide to withdraw your submission, you have until March 15th, 2014 to contact me and I will remove your video from the project. You will not be able to retract your submission past this datebecause that is when I plan to have the project sent to the Ellen Show and therefore, they will have sole rights over the video.
To submit your video, please send it to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you MUST include in the email, the sentence I have written below with your own name in the blank space provided. If you do not include this sentence with your name signed in the blank space, I will not be able to use your submission for the project.
I, , have read and understood the disclaimer from The Ellen Show and understand the purposes for this video. I hereby consent all rights of my submission to Stephanie Chard. I also understand that after that date of March 15th, 2014, I will no longer be able to retract my submission from the project.

With all the bullying and sadness I see in the fandom, let’s set all that aside and try to make a difference and help people. Spread the love, joy and kindness.
We all may be difference. But, we all have in common that we survived our abuse. And I think it would be great to come together and help other survivors.
