Entertainment Consultant and BAND AGAINST BULLYING creator BRUCE TYLER commented, "We're all so overwhelmed by the amazing support this campaign has received. That so many wanted to be involved in whatever way possible ... that fans waited for hours in the rain, just further demonstrates how passionate everyone is about this cause."
