Why? Why carry a bear to the top of a mountain? Truth is: I got fed up hearing countless stories of children being abused and just sitting back and not being able to say or do something. But why a bear? #OnwardBear is an idea, a symbolic movement aimed at raising awareness about the fact that 5 children die everyday as a result of child abuse.
If you believe all children should be free from exploitation, harm and danger... Then OnwardBear.
Some of you may have noticed that I’m posting on my personal IG rather than my OnwardBear IG. Another truth: I got tired of bouncing back and forth between two accounts as if I were two different people. It felt a little awkward. After all, this belief is a part of who I am. It has been the subject matter of my films and actions for years.
I am a husband. I am a father. I am a filmmaker and someone willing to defend our most vulnerable victims. I am a man on a mission in the wilderness with my stuffed bear.
Thanks for the photo @ginalee and for making me jump higher
