Red Carpet Premier of “The Brand UR” anti-bullying clothing line

  1. On Saturday, Feb.25, 2012, I was a guest speaker at the Red Carpet event for the “Brand UR”. The above picture is me posing for a photo with the owner and creator of the The Brand UR , Jodi LaFountain. The brand UR was founded and based on our line called popUlaR. The U and R in popUlaR were designed to be highlighted in the word making a statement by all that wore it as they were representing that UR popUlaR ….. that EVERYONE IS POPULAR! www.thebrandur.com. What was great about this opportunity is that I was able to speak out to a crowd of about 300 about why we all need to work togther to stop bullying.
I wasn’t the only guest  that took time to be there – others were Raiko Bowman, star of “The Hunger Games” movie (She plays Peeta’s Mom)and “Toddlers & Tiaras” star Paisley Dicky. Talent manager Blake Woodruff flew in from NYC to support this event as did actress Elizabeth Percy who speaks out against bullying.
 There were so many wonderful people there – it was great to see everyone stand together against bullying. Some of the highlights of the event were:
 The Brand UR Fashion Show
Song writer Shawn Lopes with The Brand UR’s
VERY OWN SONG called “popUlaR”
 Performance from The New Generation Dance Crew
Chocolate Fondue Bar
Cash Bar
& DJ Dance Party!

2011 in review – Crunching the numbers of my blog…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,500 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

2011 – a year in Review :)

A year ago I gave this blog as a present to myself. A lot has happened in a year most of which I have captured here in 41 posts, videos and pictures. I appreciate everyone reading and commenting and never would I guess that this blog would have generated close to 10,000 views. I put together a year in review video. I hope you enjoy it. I also have to give credit to my Momanager (a term used to describe a Mom who is also a Manager). She has helped me with all the administrative details on this blog, my facebook fan page, Youtube, Twitter and my IMDb page.  Happy Holidays everyone and lets all have a wonderful 2012! ~Meredith

Dancing with the Stars – Spoiler alert #DWTS Actress and anti-bully advocate Meredith Prunty

Have you ever Googled yourself?  I don’t, but my mom/manager does  all the time because she finds it interesting all the unusual sites I pop up on. The latest is a news story about Dancing with the Stars that has me linked to the show. This is actually one of the few shows that I watch and ironically my mother has been trying to get her friend Greg Louganis on this show for about 3 years now. So my only question is why is my name now attached. Is it a spoiler alert? Click on my cheerleading picture and it will lead me to the article. I cheer on two teams (High School and Cheer Factor All Star) but I have never danced so I doubt I would do very well.  Tell me what you think 🙂

Boston Entertainment News – Meredith Prunty

Recently I was interviewed by Hopkinton Television Station HCAM. There are two versions of the interview. I attached the short edition as the long edition is not available yet. I enjoy talking to the media because it gives me an opportunity to discuss my acting career but also the social issues that trouble me such as bullying and child trafficking.  Additional interviews are scheduled with various media outlets so stay tuned!

NOH8 Boston

On Sunday, I had the most exciting day ever! I went with my Nanna (Donna Glee Reim),  Mom and Auntie Mo to the NOH8 campaign at the WBoston Hotel in  Boston. I was surrounded by wonderful caring people and felt such positive energy. I am a strong anti-bully advocate and very outspoken that teens can stop other teens from bullying so when I was asked to be interviewed on camera by Megan Mitchell (www.themeganmitchell.com) I was happy to share my views. My Nanna was the hit of the day though with her beautiful red hat and happy personality. She has been an outspoken advocate of all human rights since as long as I can remember. Guess that’s where I get it from. :). Here are the official pictures along with a fun video from the event. Enjoy!  

Here is a little bit about the NOH8 Campaign (I copied this from their official website  ( www.noh8campaign.com) .

About:

On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response.

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest.

Two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 8,000 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and many more.

The NOH8 Campaign has received overwhelming support from around the world, appearing on various local and national news programs and publications. The images are currently being used on various social networking sites to spread the message of equality, predominantly Facebook and Twitter. Eventually the images are expected to be compiled for a large-scale media campaign.

The NOH8 Campaign is an approved 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization
Funds raised by the NOH8 Campaign will be used to continue promoting and raising awareness for Marriage Equality and anti-discrimination on a global level through an educational and interactive media campaign.
