Pixie Lott, Aston Merrygold and Jedward are joining in Beatbullying's The Big March 2012, the world's first global virtual protest march.
To kickstart this year's Anti-Bullying Week, the teen sensations have been busy creating avatars of themselves, which will be used in next year's virtual protest march.
Millions of avatars created by young people, celebrities, teachers and parents from around the world, will digitally march with placards across global ebsites to deliver a petition to a virtual United Nations (UN) building in New York asking that it makes it a child's rigt to live a life free from Bullying.
Pixie says: "As a beatbullying ambassador I know bullying happens on a daily basis, it's even happened to my friends and fans. No one has the right to intimidate someone, make them feel bad or scared for their safety but it keeps happening time and time again to children and young people across the globe and it needs to stop."
The Big March 2012, will be the world's first global virtual march connecting communities from all corners of the globe in the fight against bullying and, if successful in its aim, it will mean that schools, Governments and families the world over will have more power to stop bullying from happening.
Aston says: "Making someone feel scared or threatened is disgusting but bullying happens the world over and it is plain wrong. I never thought I would be affected by bullying but I was, and as a Beatbullying ambassador I know how important it is that young people get the support available at CyberMentors.org.uk and know that they are not alone."
Jedward and Beatbullying ambassadors Pixie and Aston, all publically against bullying, are asking young people to create their very own avatar at www.beatbullying.org/bigmarch to support The Big March 2012.
Jedward says: "We love our John and Edward avatars and urge more people to join up to The Big March 2012. We know what it's like to be bullied, and we think that bullying needs to be taken more seriously. We can't wait for our avatars to be marching all over the world to make a stand against bullies across the globe. Let's get marching, okay."
This will be takin place on March 1 2012.
