Kelly Rowland Joins Movement Against Domestic Violence & How to Wear Fearlessness

Kelly Rowland teamed up with photographer to the stars Derek Blanks to create a PSA for Domestic Violence Awareness month of October.

It’s a cause close to home for Kelly after revealing being in an abusive relationship with her former fiancè this summer. Her latest album (Talk a Good Game) aired her “Dirty Laundry”…no, I mean literally that was the name of one of the song’s on her record, which goes into detail of a relationship filled with verbal and physical abuse. Check the song below…

It takes a fearless woman to leave that situation…

…and speaking of being courageous, we found just the right apparel to illustrate that spirit.

L.A. implant Arian Simone created a limitless brand that includes clothing, magazine and a non-profit that specializes in mentoring young kids. Her efforts have garnered the attention of Meagan Good, Tia Mowry and VH1’s “Marrying the Game” star Tiffney Cambridge that’s modeling their Breast Cancer Awareness customized tees.

Awesome Dawes– this is whyas she’s so affectionately called by her adoring fans (me included) urged kids to ditch that cheese bus and lace up their kicks today for International Walk-to-school day. 

The bronze and gold winning Olympian joined students, parents and teachers from Rogers Heights Elementary in Maryland to burn some calories while heading to class.

The initiative was sponsored by the health care organization Kaiser Permanente to get kids active in their communities.

Thanks Rogers Elem School and Kaiser Permanente for an inspiring event to encourage our school kids to walk! Get active, get moving, get healthy!!

Dominique joined FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign in 2011. And the somersault soaring and tumblin’ diva is also co-chair to President Obama’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition. I think even she would be impressed.

Keep a look out for Dominique this month to appear in a NBC TV special about thriving schools. I will keep you updated when I know more deets.

Meanwhile, while Dominique was walking….

….Diana Nyad was swimming…again..for Hurricane Sandy victims. The tenacious extraordinaire who was the No. Uno person to swim from Cuba to Florida with jellyfish, sharks and hypothermia nipping at her heels (literally) jumped into the water this morning  for charity. To commemorate the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy she decided to swim nonstop for 48 hours in hot spot Herald Square in NYC.

ABC News reports that a 40-yard two lane pool has been erected in Herald Square for Diana’s mission. So far Diana’s efforts have raised over $68,000. To help donate money or encouragement to Diana Nyad please click here.
