WWE Awards “Be a STAR” Anti-Bullying Grants

The Creative Coalition and WWE, co-founders of the Be a STAR (Show Tolerance and Respect) anti-bullying initiative, announced Wednesday the winners of the first-ever Be a STAR grant program.

The program, which originally planned to offer four $25,000 grants, has instead awarded grants totaling $125,000 to five qualified non-profit public charities that develop and implement anti-bullying programs.

Be a STAR is an anti-bullying initiative co-founded in 2011 by The Creative Coalition and WWE. It aims to encourage young people to treat each other with tolerance and respect through education and grassroots initiatives.

WWE and The Creative Coalition leverage the power of The Creative Coalition’s entertainment industry constituencies and WWE’s global brand and platforms to help combat the bullying epidemic plaguing today’s youth.

The Creative Coalition is a nonprofit, nonpartisan social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community.

WWE, a publicly traded company (NYSE:WWE), is an integrated media organization and provides global entertainment.
