In the hope to put an end to bullying, Wednesday was a unity day.

Across Twitter and Facebook people are using #UnityDay2013 to show support.

FOX23 found a pair of high school students that are taking that anti-bullying message to another social platform.

The two Union High school students made a video that already has more than 700 views on YouTube. In their own creative way they're sending the message to stop bullying.

"And if you see somebody getting bullied you should stand up for that person and stand against bullying," said Aldyn Lieberman, one of the teens behind the video.

Aldyn and her friend, Kennedy Garcia, are juniors. They found out about a contest to make a video using Katy Perry's new song: Roar.

"Whenever we heard it was about Roar, her new single, we instantly thought it should be bullying, stand up for yourself," said Lieberman.

So the girls went to work. They have the support from their friends because if they win, Katy Perry will have a concert at the high school.

"We have scenes of her being bullied and then the bully ends up getting bullied and then they come together knowing that bullying isn't the right thing to do," said Garcia.

Their video, titled Together As One UHS, features students in different sporting and other school spirited festivities letting others know there's always a place for them to fit in.

"We just kind of put everybody together and we just showed that Union has school spirit and we're all together as one, one big family," said Lieberman.

A family with two members trying to spread an idea that will start a movement.

"With us putting out a video trying to get awareness for it, if we stand up against bullying then other people will stand up and it will be a chain reaction and eventually it won't be an issue," said Garcia.

And they're already planning their next anti-bullying video for another contest.

The girls don't know when they'll find out the winner of the Katy Perry contest.
