Sick of the #IceBucketChallenge? Well, a new one is on the rise. September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month and Instagram user @whambam_thankyou_sham has something to say:

So the official name of the challenge I’m proposing is #BoldLipsForSickleCellChallenge to participate in this challenge you could post a selfie rocking your best burgundy or red lipstick. You can post a video applying the lipstick and explain why you’re apart of the challenge or you could post a picture holding a sign that says #BoldLipsForSickleCellChallenge if you’re just totally against lipstick. Fellas if you’re brave enough to pucker up that would be great! If not get a lady to leave kisses on you.

In addition to participating I ask that people make a donation of ANY size to: http://www.ascaa.org/donate-online.php. I choose this organization because it’s the national organization for Sickle Cell. Now I’m not sure if everyone is set on this challenge but this is what I came up with and I’m presenting it to get others opinion. If we choose to do this challenge I ask that we keep it fun, clean and positive.

Almost immediately the submissions started pouring in.

T-Boz posted to her Instagram: “My brother accepted the challenge for #boldlipsforsicklecell #boldlipsforsicklecellchallenge #tbeezy #tlc #tbeezy #boom #yup”

In the pic below @ross_2g said, “I Dante Ross love somebody with Sickle Cell !! So I ask you to do this #BoldLipsForSickleCellChallenge #Awareness #Love #Challenge #MakeADifference.”

Monica writes, ” I’ve watched my little cousin Anjari battle this disease. He’s strong and resilient but the pain is obvious!! S/O to my girl @therealtboz for also making SO many aware!! #PillarsOfStrength”
